Indian cinema has seen some of the most gorgeous women that ever set foot on this earth. One name that has ruled hearts for a long time with her breathtaking beauty is Aishwarya Rai. From a young girl who won the Miss World title in 1994 to the enchanting seductress in ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, she has come a long way. Hailed as the most beautiful woman on earth, she was one of the first female actresses to put Indian cinema on the global front. She has been in the industry for over two decades now and yet her charm refuses to fade.
Her recent look in ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ is to die for, to say the least. The woman has never looked hotter. As they say, women become prettier as they age. The light-eyed beauty might be celebrating her 43rd birthday today, but she still can set hearts racing, young or old.
We take a look at some of her most stunning pictures over the years. These photographs prove time cannot wither away real beauty and Aishwarya has defied age with much grace.
The woman with the most beautiful eyes
Eyes that could hypnotize
From an ordinary girl from Mangalore to the ravishing diva of Bollywood
She made us fall in love with her when she played the beloved torn between her husband and her lost love
Or when she became part of every man’s fantasy with her iconic ‘Kajrare’
No one else could carry the no-make-up look as beautifully
The woman is just made to perfection
She made the love story of Jodha-Akbar look more romantic than Romeo-Juliet’s
No one could play the seductive goddess (in ‘Guzaarish’) better
It’s no surprise there’s a tulip named after her in Netherlands
Despite the years, the eyes remain the same
Could she be royalty?
Becoming the first Indian on the jury at Cannes International Film Festival in 2003, she added much glitter to the red carpet.
Age is really just a goddamn number
Ae dil, hai mushkil
Ladies and gentlemen, that’s Aishwarya Rai for you.
