    She is one of the most beautiful faces of the world. She is the jaan of millions. We are talking about the heart-throbbing diva Aishwarya Rai.

    Just before the release of her two big films (Umrao Jaan and Dhoom 2), Aishwarya Rai gets in an exclusive rendezvous with Simi Garewal this Sunday at 9.30 p.m. on Star World. Below are excerpts from the rendezvous.

    Simi: Stunning, what do I say?
    Ash: I think it's the work of the entire team ... they put me together.. fixed me up...
    Simi: 8 years .. and we have a lot of catching up to do. Have you changed since then?
    Ash: We grow with experience obviously.. but in terms of being passionate about life .. that's ongoing ...

    Simi: Still a dreamer?
    Ash: Very much ... you dream but you also work towards realizing your dream ...
    Simi: At that time you did not have a hit film you know .. and you were not even in love .. wiser now...
    Ash: That's for you to gauge...
    Simi: Wiser since then ...
    Ash: You tell me ...
    Simi: More at peace now
    Ash: I think a lot more. People whom I interact with, all of you, when they look at me they say I am seemingly a lot more at peace now. Definitely, a lot more comfortable with the world I belong. That was the beginning, my world was broadening, there was so much happening. In that sense, I wanted to tread carefully... Today it is my family, it is my world and I am a lot more comfortable here...

    Simi: But there has to be a great sense of achievement?
    Ash: I would be ungrateful to God's blessings if I denied that.
    Simi: You've entered new worlds and... new people have entered your world as well, have any become friends or are they just bishops passing the knights?

    Ash: Actually, probably, I am to be blamed.. (laughs)
    Simi: You don't keep in touch
    Ash: Look at you (laughs).
    Simi: Yes, I know (laughs).
    Ash: But I do have a friend in you
    Simi: You always admired Robert De Niro...
    Ash: Oh! I admire him as an actor. Who would have thought that in my first trip I would have actually got to meet him. He just came so normal.. and then after a while he was actually giving me advice....

    Simi: Why are your performances in some films outstanding and in some forgettable ...
    Ash: (laughs) .. it depends on which ones your are calling forgettable .. let's not name them...
    Simi: No, we won't name them ...
    Ash: But I agree with you there are lot of them which are forgettable ...
    Simi: How did you feel .. when you were removed from these films ... big films, big banners ...
    Ash: Ah! I guess at that time when you have no explanation you obviously are taken aback and confused of course and you wonder about it..
