Happy Birthday to Aishwarya Rai!

Aishwarya Rai (born November 1, 1973) is an Indian actress and former fashion model. She was awarded the Miss World title in 1994. Aishwarya Rai has also acted in Telugu, Bengali, Tamil and English films.

Although frequently the subject of gossip column speculation about an imminent Hollywood career, it was only in 2004 that Rai finally acted in a foreign film, when British director Gurinder Chadha hired her to play the heroine in Bride and Prejudice, a Hollywood-funded but Bollywood-ized version of Jane Austen’s classic novel, Pride and Prejudice. The movie came just shy of breaking even at the US box office but earned over 400% return on investment in global revenue.

Aishwarya’s latest movie Umrao Jaan releases this Friday. I wish her all the best for a successfull career.
