The gorgeous Aishwarya Rai says that that she has grown wise while deciding on signing movies.

"I believe in the power of saying 'NO'. When I am not convinced about something. I simply say no," Ash says.

Ash is back in India after a brief stint in Hollywood and she has some big banner Bollywood movies lined up.

Except for The Last Legion and Provoked , there is nothing lined up for release this year from Hollywood and the only English script that the former Miss World is ready to go public is about a Will Smith movie.

And Ash is not talking about her other Hollywood ventures, French remake 'Chaos' with Meryl Streep and 'Singularity' directed by Roland Joff, both are yet to take off the ground.

"There are quite a few scripts from abroad, but I hope to be able to work with Will Smith. The script was great and it will be fun to work with him," said Ash who was in New Delhi recently.

But there are quite a few Bollywood flicks lined up including, Guru by Mani Ratnam , Jodha Akbar by Ashutosh Gowarikar , and Sarkar 2 by Ram Gopal Varma and the forthcoming releases, Umrao Jaan and Dhoom 2 . Hollywood can wait, Ash said.

As for the future Hollywood projects, Ash says that like many other things in life, she would leave it for the time and the dates to decide. "I really want time to decide. I don't know what will come my way. I will go through the scripts, I will look at the dates and only then will sign newer movies" she says.

Talking about 'Umrao Jaan', Ash says that she avoided watching the original 'Umrao Jaan' when the movie was being made. The original starred Rekha in the main role.

"Whenever there are remakes being made, I am not given to the temptation of watching the original as there could be some visual impression that can influence my performance. I like to keep away from emulation or repetition," she says.

About the inevitable comparison between her and Rekha by the media she says, "I will enjoy reading or hearing about the comparisons," but, is wholesome in her praise for Rekha. "I consider it a privilege to actually play the role that Rekha is actually known for and I am very lucky to be spoken about in the same breath as her," Ash says.

In fact long before Ash made it to the movies, Rekha had predicted that she would one day make it to the films.

About her brand new look in 'Dhoom 2' Ash she says that she had never before essayed a role of a character like 'Sunheri' in Dhoom 2. "I think I have done lot of Indian characters, but playing a westernised character in Dhoom 2 was different."

Ash who did her own stunts in the movie mentions one scene where she jumps off a cliff, as a very exciting one.
