Aishwarya Rai Bachchan – The queen
Think fame. Think overwhelming beauty. Think Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. And yes, while she’s often topped beauty polls, she’s also the first Indian actress to have brought global fame to our industry, in more ways than one. As a performer too, she’s never chosen the predictable path. She’s been a muse to avant garde directors like Mani Ratnam, Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Rajeev Menon… And if her last release Guzaarish is anything to go by, the actress has mastered the art of attacking complex roles with particularly interesting results. Known for her quirky individualism, not only is Aishwarya a reservoir of talent but has the charisma of an eternal star. And no one can take that away from her.
