Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is undoubtedly one of the hottest bollywood actresses. We bring to you some beautiful on the sets pictures of former Miss World Aishwarya.
Talking about her bollywood journey, Aishwarya Rai Bahchan told Times Of India, in a recent interview, ''While I was born in Mangalore, I lived my entire life in Mumbai. I went to Arya Vidya Mandir (Santacruz) and then to junior college at Jai Hind and Ruparel College. While I wanted to do my medicine and all my best friends are doctors, last minute I switched to architecture as I thought I was also artistically inclined.''

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan further added, ''One of my professors in college who had cancer was also a photojournalist, so she requested me to do a photoshoot for her. I actually did it just for her, given her situation but the professionals who were there on set saw me and word spread like wildfire and the whole business was constantly asking me to join it. ''
''I participated in Miss India in 1994 and then took a break for a year to go to 'Miss World'. By this time, top filmmakers had started talking to me, including Yash Chopraji and Shekhar Kapur. Shekhar told me, 'Look, I have also done my chartered accountancy and I know what you are thinking, but this is going to be your reality. Complete your degree if this is what you think is the natural course of your life, but this is where you will be.'
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan revealed, ''Mani Ratnam was one of the filmmakers who always drove me nuts. I had many offers to do top Bollywood films, so I didn't choose a Tamil film as I didn't have work, but I wanted to work with Mani Ratnam and signed my first film Iruvar in Tamil. And I will always be proud that that was my first film.''
Aishwarya says, ''When I returned to college for felicitation, I realised that it would never ever be the same again for me. I could not have remained a normal student anymore.''
The most beautiful woman of the world, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan says, '' I had already done my first commercial with Aamir Khan and the energy around me had been very strong for a while.''

''A lot of the choices I made would flummox a lot of people as they were against the natural choices of the secure box office projects, but those films always find the first mention in any interactions, creatively, on our turf, beyond our shores, at airports and with audiences,'' said Aishwarya.

''Time has just flown by me. I have genuinely been blissed out taking care of Aaradhya. But I kept meeting filmmakers all through these years of being with her. I have been doing it all along and I balance it out with my mother,'' said Aish
Talking about her family, Aish said, ''I have a very realistic family. I have always sat down without any rebellion or fight and talked out everything with them about each of my decisions.''
Aishwarya added, ''They have never handled my career or had any meetings for me. I always did that myself as in my head, this was my career. I was a working woman and that's how I approached it right from the beginning.''
Aishwarya on her parents, ''My parents are not the kind who will be spoiling you and over engulfing you with compliments. They are very normal. You go to an awards function, get your awards and it's back to normal life.''
Behind The Scene
''I will behave elder than my father, mother, my brother and they have allowed for it. And I know that it has to be their love and indulgence that they have allowed me to behave like the eldest in the family,'' reveals Aishwarya.
Aish on Sanjay Leela Bhansali, ''Sanjay Leela Bhansali always tells me, 'I love you and I can't bear you'. And I always tell him can you please make up your mind as that is the most nasty and yet the most wonderful thing to say.''
Aishwarya on Abhishek, ''He's a really nice guy. The honest truth is that we have always found a beautiful friendship that we share.''
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan adds, ''And that's what converted into marriage and it's only grown deeper and deeper with each passing day. What's wonderful is that we are growing with each other.''
''We share a lot. I communicate a lot and believe immensely in it and he says that he does that most with me. He is a very real guy. And I am a very real person. We are both very connected to our reality and to ourselves,'' she said.
