|A beautiful and talented actress, a proud mom, and a much-loved Bachchan bahu, Bollywood stunner Aishwarya Rai turns 39 today and we at ApunKaChoice wish her a very happy birthday with this special tribute.
Not the one who was born with a silver spoon in mouth, Aishwarya Rai has achieved success, fame and name in showbiz solely by dint of her hard work, her beauty, and her talent. She’s been reckoned one of the most beautiful women in the world, and she’s the only actress from mainstream Bollywood to become the face of Hindi cinema for the west. She’s worked with the likes of Colin Firth and Steve Martin and just missed out getting paired with Brad Pitt in Troy. In fact, in a recent interview, Brad Pitt expressed his wish to work with Aishwarya Rai in a Bollywood movie. That very statement speaks volumes about the popularity Ash enjoys in Hollywood.
Today, Aishwarya Rai has put her acting career on the backburner and plunged headlong into motherhood with her little bundle of joy Aaradhya Bachchan, and doing that she has surely won the admiration of many of her fans who are floored with her dedication towards family.
Aishwarya Rai’s birthday today is going to be special because she will be honoured with the French award Officer Dan Ordre des Arts et des Lettres (Order of Arts and Letters), the second highest French civilian honour. The entire Bachchan family -- hubby Abhishek Bachchan, and in-laws Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan, and not to miss the little Aaradhya -- are going to be by Ash’s side when she accepts the French honour.
It would be a proud moment for the actress and the day couldn’t have been more apt.
Here’s wishing Aishwarya Rai a very happy birthday with a recap of some of the glamourous outings since the birth of Aaradhya.
