Snippets From Femina Magazine
Talking to the Femina magazine, Aishwarya Rai said “Even before winning the Miss World titles, I was being pursued. Dharmesh Darshan had offered me Raja Hindustani; Yashji (Yash Chopra) wanted to launch me in Maine Toh Mohabbat Kar Li, which became Dil Toh Pagal Hai. I met Shekhar Kapur who told me that he was a trained chartered accountant, but then cinema beckoned.
During the title year, both Mani Ratnam and Rajiv Menon got in touch. I was an admirer of Mani Ratnam’s cinema, so Iruvar happened. Again, my story was an unconventional one. Unlike other newcomers who waited to see the fate of their first film, I’d already signed two to three films. Long story short, when I started shooting Iruvar with Mani, my inner voice told me this was home.”
When asked about two decades of non-stop praise and admiration by everyone for her work and how she handles it, Aishwarya replied “By not focusing on it and staying as normal as I know. People wonder when I say this as there are always cameras clicking around me, and crowds gathering but I tell them that’s my normal. That’s how I find my balance and continue to do the job on hand. Matching my schedules with Abhishek Bachchan too is a whole book. In April, we will complete 11 years together. I can only be grateful for all that I have in my life today.”
No interview is complete without talking about her adorable daughter Aaradhya. Folks at the Femina magazine asked Aishwarya that she picks and drops Aaradhya to school, religiously, every single day. If Aardadhya was to read this interview few years down the line, what message would Aishwarya want to give her? To this, Aishwarya replied “Aaradhya is God’s child, her own person, a supercalifragilisticexpialidocious soul. I’m blessed to have her as my daughter. All I’d like to say to her is that she can make and do what she wants with her life.”
