Is Aishwarya Rai Bachchan losing her importance? Well, could she? We all know that she is one of the most popular faces around the world. Her collaboration with international brands and her appearances at many international events including Cannes has surely helped her reaching a point, where no one can replace her!
But according to the latest shocking reports, we hear that a popular actress might replace her as the face of a hair care brand. Any guesses, who is she? None other than Priyanka Chopra, who is leaving no stones unturned to bring India on the Global map!
A Popular Brand Wants To Replace Aishwarya?
A leading entertainment portal quoted a source as saying, "Aishwarya has been the face of the brand for several years now. However, they now want a much-younger and an equally popular (if not more) actress on board."
It's Priyanka VS Aishwarya
Adds the source, "Looking at Priyanka's increasing popularity in Hollywood, the brand decided to get her on board. In fact, they have had a meeting with the actress as well and formalities are being worked out at the moment. Interestingly, PeeCee has increased her remuneration post her international project, but the brand is getting ready to meet her demands."
Aishwarya On Priyanka
Not so long ago, in her interview with Filmfare, the magazine had asked Aishwarya Rai Bachchan to comment on this, "You've been one of our first global icons. Now actors like Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone are taking the legacy forward..."
"Everybody Has Done Work Beyond Hindi Cinema"
She had said, "I'm not going to make any proclamations and delude myself that I was the first. I enjoyed the recognition that came with the opportunities. There were many before me. Shabanaji (Azmi), Amrish Puriji, Kabir Bediji, Naseer saab, Om Puriji. Everybody has done work beyond Hindi cinema."
"We Grew Up On Hindi Cinema"
She added, "I enjoy cinema. We grew up on Hindi cinema. Right from the onset I've worked in Tamil and Bengali cinema. I was open to Telugu and Malayalam cinema but it never came to be."
"Suddenly I Was On The Covers Of Prestigious Magazines"
"Suddenly I was on the covers of prestigious magazines. Devdas was celebrated at Cannes and I got the opportunity to be the first Indian actor on the jury of the festival. So a couple of firsts happened in my life. It might seem like I'm the first but there were many others before me. Life's been kind that I got to enjoy those adages and recognition. My life is enriched with all these experiences."
Both Aish & PeeCee Has Come A Long Way
Going by Aishwarya Rai's words, one can say that she has come a long way and so does Priyanka Chopra! However, if Priyanka replaces Aishwarya, many Aish fans will be left heartbroken. Now, we have to see whether Priyanka will take the final call or not.
Recently Sonam Replaced Aishwarya
On a related note, recently, actress Sonam Kapoor had replaced Aishwarya Rai Bachchan as the face of popular jewellery brand, Kalyan Jewellers. We wonder, what Aishwarya has to say on the same!
On the work front, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan will be next seen in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. The film is in tremendous buzz owing to its controversies. The film also casts Ranbir Kapoor, Anushka Sharma and Fawad Khan in the lead role.
On the other side, Priyanka Chopra has not signed any Bollywood project yet and she will be next seen in her upcoming Hollywood film, Baywatch.
