Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is that goddess royalty of the Bollywood industry who isn’t too shy and arrogant to come down to earth!

It’s a rarity to find such a beauty who ends up looking divine regardless of what she does or wears. Often when such an actress like her is discovered she is reduced to her beauty. But Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is one of those few exceptionally beautiful actresses who not only breaks the norm but the glass ceiling as well each and every time. Yes, of course, her god-given beauty is unmatched but the way she conducts herself makes her more real and more than just a combination of beauty with brains!

After winning the Miss World title in 1994, Aishwarya became a fairly known face because of her exceptional beauty. And since 1997 she has worked in both Tamil, as well as Hindi cinema and, has garnered the title of the most beautiful woman on earth. She started officially as an actress working with Mani Ratnam’s Iruvar and Tamil drama film Jeans. While she made her debut in Hindi cinema with Aur Pyaar Ho Gaya, it was SLB’s Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam that made her a known face in every household. Her career like any other superstar has seen ups and downs over a span of over more than a decade. Her projects include regional ones like Kandukondain Kandukondain, Chokher Bali, Rajinikanth’s Enthiran to indie projects like Raincoat and Bollywood projects like Aa Ab Laut Chalen, Taal, Josh, Mohabbatein, Devdas, Kuch Naa Kaho, Kyun! Ho Gaya Na…, Dhoom 2, Guru, Jodhaa Akbar, Raavan, Guzaarish, Sarbjit, Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, and many more with her recent release as Ponniyin Selvan: I.

She’s also one of the first Indian actresses to have made a name for herself as well as for the country in Hollywood much before Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone. In 2003, she was the first to be a jury member for Cannes and worked on many English projects with big names. Her work includes projects like Bride and Prejudice, The Mistress of SpicesProvoked, The Pink Panther 2, and more. She also established herself in the country and overseas when she made an appearance on the Oprah Show, Letterman Show, Martha’s Show, and Tyra Banks Show.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has always stood up for herself as well as for others. Her relationship with Salman Khan was quite controversial when she spoke about facing abuse in the relationship. She married into one of the most influential families in the country but did not lose her identity. She is one of the first few actresses who worked after marriage and pregnancy as she chose to walk the ramp at Cannes. She chose to play Shah Rukh Khan’s sister in Josh and Ranbir Kapoor’s lover in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil who is quite younger than her. She was never ashamed of living with her parents up until marriage and neither did she let anyone make her feel bad about it. She is the brand ambassador for quite a lot of brands in India and abroad but she has always presented herself as a simple, sophisticated, and familial woman.

Yes, of course, her beauty is enchanting and mostly unachievable for people. But it’s the poise, dedication, intelligence, humility, and confidence with which she presents herself and represents the rest of us outside of the country that is inspiring and worthy of applause! Happy Birthday Aishwarya Rai Bachchan!
