Not just Aishwarya, her contemporaries like Sushmita Sen, Rani Mukherjee, Preity Zinta and Kajol too have been replaced by the likes of Katrina, Kareena, Deepika Padukone, even Sonam Kapoor and Genelia D"Souza.
But Aishwarya is doing better than her contemporaries. She may not be the face of Coca-Cola and Nakshatra diamond jewellery in India, but she still has successful and long-standing international endorsements.
She has completed nearly a decade of endorsing Swiss luxury watch brand Longines, international soap Lux and is the brand ambassador of global haircare brand L'Oreal since 2003.
And unlike Shilpa Shetty and Preity Zinta, who have moved on to business like IPL with rich boyfriends, Aishwarya still has some good movies like Mani Ratnam"s Raavan, Sanjay Leela Bhansali"s next with Hrithik Roshan, Vipul Shah"s Action Replay with Akshay Kumar and a movie with Excel entertainment, probably one with Rajiv Menon as well. Hollywood top star Will Smith is still willing to work with her.
That very well makes clear the fact that the dame is here to stay put in the glitzy world of showbiz for a few more years.
