looks and talent made her a sure shot winner in the beauty pageants but faring
equally well in films was a point to be debated. Would Aishwarya be able to
deliver emotions, dialogues and dance with the same Úlan?
Ash's first film, 'Iruvar' (in Tamil) laid an expensive egg in the south. Ditto
for Aur Pyar Ho Gaya and Jeans. But eventually, the girl with a
million-dollar face combined with a strong personality and intelligence
The debate concluded and went in Ash's favor. Almost all the happening directors
and producers of Bollywood started booking her dates for their projects. The
success of Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam and Taal proved that she
possessed and could deliver all that it takes to top the charts in Bollywood.
That has given an international edge to Ash's star status, something she enjoyed
even with the Miss World title.
All this has done the inevitable to Ash's career graph. She has the major
producers and directors chasing her for dates. Leading men in the industry send
feelers to producers to cast them opposite her.
