    Aishwarya Rai Bachchan might be getting multiple offers from the filmmakers; but the actress is failing back in proving her worth in the industry. Aishwarya Rai went on a maternity break when she gave birth to Aaradhya in 2011, and after four years, she made a comeback with Jazbaa. Though the film garnered a lot of eyeballs, it failed to gather footfalls at the theatres. Post her maternity break, Sarabjit was her second outing and the film failed to create any magic at the box office as well.

    And now, her latest outing, Fanney Khan, which is currently running at the theatres, has been declared a 'flop' as well! It's been one week since the movie has hit the theatres and it has earned only Rs 9 Crore. Wondering what could be the reason behind Aishwarya's back-to-back flops? Let's decode.

    Aishwarya's Look Is Surely Not The Reason

    A leading trade analyst was quoted in Asian Age as saying, "Somehow Aishwarya's comeback films are not working. It could be her selection of roles. It certainly can't be the way she looks, as she is looking better than in any of her films."

    Aishwarya Put In A Lot Of Effort For Fanney Khan

    The trade analyst further added, "Even the idea of the tattoo on her wrist was her's. She hand-held debutant director Atul Manjrekar because she knew they were treading on wobbly ground. But the final outcome was far from appealing."

    A filmmaker was quoted as saying, "She (Aishwarya Rai) wants to go from Jennifer Lopez to Meryl Streep, but she doesn't have the range. In Jazbaa, she played a traumatised mother but looked shallow and too taken up with looking glamorous."

    'Aishwarya Lacks Emotional Depth'

    "In Fanney Khan, she is fine singing, dancing and playing the pop diva. But when she has to communicate her character's loneliness, she is at a loss. Aishwarya lacks the emotional depth to pull off 40-plus characters," says the filmmaker.

    Fanney Khan: Rs 9 Crore in the first week
    Sarabjit: Rs 33 Crore total collection
    Jazbaa: Rs 31 Crore total collection
