Nandini…. or Paro…. the name echoes in our hearts with bone chilling sepulchral wonder. The riveting performances that Aishwarya has given us, compels us to admire her acting in different shades from ‘Aua Ab Laut Chale’ to ‘Sarabjit’. She can fire up a canvas and has created trends as an actress, as a wife and mother! Her inimitable ability to mix grandeur with simplicity makes her a well loved actress. Her work in ‘Hum dil de chuke sanam’ gave her the best actress award. The dream project of the talented, director Sanjay Leela Bhansali. Who never lets the camera move from Aish’s face. The humor in the song, ‘Jhokha Hawa Ka, is fetching’ Aish is wearing a captivating lehanga and looks like a breath of fresh air.
Romance and movies
Makes one wonder how much we lap up about films as the film costumes went viral and the red sarees worn by Aish was a hit and the shawl trailing will always be in our frame. Long after Aish must have even forgotten that she had made a movie of such impression. Considering how much it still influences Indian film and fashion today! We love to capture the extravagant, opulent spirit of Bollywood. Her famous dance steps to the song Nimbooda’ choreographed by Saroj Khan is loved even today and the fashion conscious love the beautiful lehangas she wore and the audience also loved the teasing Nandini and the unpretentious Vanraj.
The movie had an unmistakable grandiose feel. The lavish sets, traditional dance numbers and extravagant costumes, Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam’s visual look evokes just as much emotion and the classic Indianism and patriotic spirit as its plot line. The story was as gripping as the locales it was shot in. Nothing distracted the other! By far one of the best looks of Aishwarya Rai. She is a regular at the red carpet style at Cannes.
‘Aankhon Ki Gustakhiyan’ adds that poetry in the movie ‘Chand Chupa Badal Mein’ creates magic with the lehanga and the photography through the gossamer dupatta. The movie was flawless. The costumes became legendary. There was poetry on screen and we had a block buster in 1999.
Aishwarya has always supported the saree and is often seen wearing handloom sarees. She has worn it, to the Cannes and also when she met the French President. She made the 13yard saree famous in ‘Devdas’ and the six yard saree famous in ‘Dil De Chuke Sanam’ and it all seemed effortless and that is the trademark of talent.
She is still today loved for the causes she stands up for and the work she has done in the film industry. Aishwarya is very professional in her working and also loves experimentation not only with her roles but also her hair. Even at school, most of her money was spent on her hair. She is a fine judge of people and a good scorpion to have on your side. We also loved her loreal ads and truly endorse her words that ‘You are worth it’along with Louis Vuitton accessories, she looks a million bucks and Aishwarya Rai Bachhan, you are certainly worth it. A saree has that mysterious and miraculous power of transformation and as said by the lady herself she could feel the awe it created at Cannes. A saree is kind and noble and above all a suitable choice.
