The Public Relations Officer (PRO) attached to Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan has issued a statement vis-à-vis the actress’ choice of heroes opposite her. The statement has dismissed reports which appeared in some sections of the press which said that Aishwarya has decided to star in films only opposite hubby Abishek Bachchan in her ‘second innings’ in films after the birth of her daughter Aaradhya.
Aishwarya was going highly successful as heroine when she decided it was time for her to get into the ‘family mode’ and gave birth to Aaradhya late last year. The actress is said to have put on some weight post the delivery of her daughter and wasn’t appearing to be taking any immediate steps to ‘get back in shape’.
She, however, shot for a commercial recently which has evoked mixed feelings amid her fans. While some say that the old ‘glow’ is back, others feel that child birth has had its bearing on her looks and that she’s past her prime now. It’s in this backdrop that the statement by her PRO has insisted that if the script was good enough, Aishwarya was ready to star opposite other heroes too.
“Those reports are planted by her detractors who are out to damage the actress’ image. The actress has been slowly but steadily regaining her old glory and would soon be seen on screen taking on prominent roles,” the statement further said. It may be noted that the 2010 film Guzaarish happens to be Aishwarya’s last film as on date.
