USA Today writes about Aishwarya Rai

Category: Misc

Ash is Hot in New York.

USA Today profiles Aishwarya Rai. Her movie, Bride and Prejudice-a Bollywood adaptation of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, is playing in New York and L.A.

This movie was a flop in India, if I'm not mistaken. I haven't seen it, but I remember Suman telling me it was boring. It was a success in the UK.

The USA Today article offers help in pronouncing her name. (Ash-WAHR-ee-ah Rye)

Aishwarya is a Sanskrit word that means Prosperity (wealth).
Call her Ash, like we do. :-)

As per the article, Indian actresses don't kiss. Not exactly. The wannabe/bold/nex-gen/upcoming/lower-rung actresses do kiss. And the kisses are getting steamier and lengthier, but the screenplays are getting worse, so those films don't succeed at the box office, although they do draw crowds for a week or two.

A beautiful sher (verse) on Ash.

Tum naam ki kya baat karte ho
Log insaan ko bhool jaaya karte hai

Tum samundar mai doobne ki baat karte ho
Log Aishwarya ki aankhon mai doob jaya karte hai

You talk of remembering names
People forget people

You talk of drowning in an ocean
People drown in Aishwarya's eyes
