It was not Jeans but Raja Hindustani that was first offered to Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. She said, "I'm often cited as the person who established the beauty pageant-to-films route, but that was not the case with me. I had at least four film offers [before the pageants]. In fact, I decided to participate in Miss India to step back from the film industry for a bit. If I hadn't taken part in Miss India, Raja Hindustani  would have been my first film."
On Break Up Statement
"When I wrote out that press statement stating what I had to about the end of all association with him, I was in hospital with a fractured foot. I wrote that statement from my hospital bed where I had lots of time to think about what I was doing," is what Ash said on the statement that she released after the breakup with Salman Khan.
Working With Salman Khan
On working with Salman Khan, the ex flame of the Dabangg Khan said, "Working with Salman is out of the question. And you can quote me on that."
On International Recognition
"In terms of finding that first international recognition of my work, coming back to Cannes is such a milestone in my life because it began actually with 'Devdas'."
On Coping With Pressure Of Motherhood
Ash has been in the news since she tied the knot and then got pregnant. The actress when asked on pressure of being a mother said, "Strangely nothing makes me feel tired, fatigued at all. I've gone days and nights without sleep, and still the mind is in such a positive space it just doesn't make you feel fatigued."
Bride and Prejudice
"I am very, very thankful to Gurinder because that film [Bride and Prejudice] was such a clever piece of work, because there she was adapting an English classic, making it so human and so normal in that very Indian family atmosphere which is so natural to us, and presenting it with what was recognised as very signature Bollywood, bringing the musical aspect - and it was widely appreciated the world over. Wherever I went, people recognised that. I was amazed at the number of people who had given it [an] audience."
This is a shocking revelation done by Ash. She was being criticised for her post-pregnancy weight gain but the actress who killed it Cannes red carpet in 2014 with her gorgeous new avatar says, "When it comes to food, I love my food, I am comfortable with my foods. I have never dieted. Never. I really enjoy food."
On Post-Pregnancy Weight Gain
"This is who I am. I am a mother. This can happen and it has happened with me and it's fine (weight gain). I've never been the one who endorse size zero anyway. You guys speculated I was pregnant way before I actually was. It goes to show that I have lived real life in the public eye. That continues."
I have seen Pa's (Father-in-law Amitabh Bachhan) blog... how people interact with him with so much ease... as if they are just sitting beside him. Both Abhishek and I would love to blog but don't have enough time to dedicate to it. So for the time being, we will have the media as our communicator."
On Marriage and Pregnancy
"After I got married, for the next two years, I was congratulated everywhere and felt like a new bride. Same goes true for when I was pregnant. Wherever I went, the amount of love I, Abhishek and Aaradhya have received...it's a blessing to be in this place."
Her Weakness and Strength
"My family is my strength and my weakness." Ash even said, "She (Mother, Brindya Rai) is the nucleus of my existence; who has gently molded me, shaped me, picked me up when I've been down, has faith in me and taught me to be the very best version of me that I can be."
Aaradhya's Smile Is Everything
"It's splendid, it's inescapable...the bliss is just wonderful. A smile from my daughter and that's it."
On Working In First English Movie
"I was more excited than scared, at the opportunity to work in an English movie."
I'll Never Go Begging
Although Ash has been missing from the silver screen as she is enjoying motherhood to the fullest, the actress said, "I know for a fact that if there's a role which I am suited for, I'll be signed on. I'll never go begging."
On Women In The Industry
"Women in the industry have been exploited very often, but there are some actors who believe that the short cut to stardom is through nudity."
On Amitabh Bachchan
"I'd be accused of bias, but worldwide currently Pa (Father-in-law Amitabh Bachchan) is absolutely iconic, he's celebrated, he's respected. He definitely is deservedly iconic, and I say this without any bias, and if I am accused of it so be it."
