Aishwarya Rai has mesmerized the audience with her charm for almost two decades now. She has given Indian cinema some unforgettable movies and has gone down in history has a timeless beauty. Let’s have a look at 7 of her most iconic looks:
Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam (1999)
Ash wore beautiful lehengas, colourful chunaris and accessorized it with kangans and jhumkas. Her beauty made the nation sit up and take notice. This movie went on to become the breakthrough movie in Aishwarya’s career.
Ash’s character was a sweet girl named Mansi who went on to become a singing sensation. From Mansi’s earlier years when she wore no make up and simple clothes, to her days of stardom with ultra-glam clothes and make up, Ash pulled it off with great panache.
Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Devdas’ was the third adaptation and first coloured film adaptation of Sharat Chandra Chattopadhyaya’s 1917 novel ‘Devdas’. It was the filmmaker’s dream project, and he made Ash look like a dream too. From the beautiful sarees to the heavy jewelerry she wore as a married ‘Thakurani’, Ash was magic on screen. During the shoot of the song ‘Dola Re Dola’, her earings were so heavy, it made her ears bleed. But she did’t tell anyone about it till the song was completed.
Umraao jaan (2006)
In this movie, Aishwarya for the first time, was seen doing mujra. The detailing in Ash’s costume was commendable. The flair, cuts, movement of the dress when she danced, it was mesmerizing. Even though the movie didn’t do that well, her screen presence took everyone’s breath away .
Dhoom 2 (2006)
Sunehri was one of the most glamorous avatars of Ash. She looked like she had never before. Mini skirts, high-heeled boots, tube tops, leather corsets, Ash set the screen on fire with he smoking hot look.
This was one of the very few movies in Ash’s career where we saw her in a completely de-glam avatar. She played the wife of India’s most successful entrepreneur. She wore sarees that had been washed thrice before, wore minimal makeup and most of the time had her hair braided. Inspite of all this, she looked beautiful as her natural beauty shined through.
Jodha Akbar (2008)
Ashutosh Gowariker’s movie based on the 16th
century love story of the Mughal emperor and Rajput princess won hearts. Ash was adorned in beautiful lehengas, long straight tresses and of course, how can we forget that nathni. She even looked beautiful while dueling with Hrithik. What a diva!
Ae Dil Hai Mushkil (2016)
The latest avatar of the gorgeous actress has created buzz all around. Dressed in short dresses and long overcoats, paired up with boots and a hint of ethenicity, this is probably Aishwarya’s most kickass avatars! She has proved that she is a timeless beauty.
