Her first film was Mani Ratnam’s Iruvar, in which she played a rather diminutive role but she could captivate the audience by her dance performance and in depth acting. With duds like ‘Aur Pyaar Ho Gaya’ and ‘Jeans’, when everybody had almost written her off till she bounced back with a stunning performance in ‘Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam’. ‘Taal’ set her on equal footing with the reigning Goddess Madhuri Dixit. With extravaganza Devdas on one hand she has also starred in a frugally budgeted Bengali Film, ‘Choker Bali’ on the other. It’s an R Ghosh film, based on a story by Rabindranath Tagore. ‘Aa Ab Laut Chalein’ brought her under the RK banner and she feels proud to be associated with this great production house. Besides Hindi films, Aishwarya has starred in a few south Indian movies too. On the personal front Aishwarya’s life has been eclipsed by an unhappy affair with the ill-tempered Salman Khan. With all kinds of negative rumours rife about them, she moved out of the relationship in 2001. Both of them have since declared since that they don’t have anything to do with each other.
