As a fan of Aishwarya's who just eats up any information regarding her that I can find or scrounge, this book did not disappoint, although it did not TOTALLY enlighten as well.
Regarding the subject of Aishwarya Rai. Mr. Ghosh earnestly tries hard enough to do a thorough enough of a job by canvassing aspects of Ms. Rai's life such as Aishwarya's childhood and school years.
Then on to her stint in the famous Indian Pepsi commerical that made her a household name in India. Last but certainly not least on to her crowning as Ms. World in 1994 and the start of her movie career in Bollywood among her many other misadventures, most notably regarding her on again/off again relationship with the volatile Salman Khan.
One thing about this book I respect though a avid Aishwary Rai fan, THERE ARE some subject matters in this book upon objective reading does not portray Aishwarya Rai in the kindest light, if one is honest with one's self upon reading the passages in this book, you would find yourself doubting some of the things shes gone on to say and do. But then again I could very well say the most of the book does paint a rosy picture of Aishwarya Rai and seems to be Mr. Ghosh's best "Rah Rah" act regarding Aiswharya.
But it does show some of her faults which as humans we all have, and it writes of her many misses in the Bollywood film industry as her many hits. All in all it shows a woman who possess, the very least beauty but also great fortitude, patience and perserverance who worked hard to get to where she's at now. The top of the Bollywood/modelling world, and poised very soon to make a big splash in America. This book does a decent enough of a job to fill you in on the early history and current career status of Aishwary Rai, although I doubt it would tell you everything you may wanted to know about the enchanting beauty.
Suffice it to say, some will find this book interesting, some may find it amusing, some may some of Aishwaya's shortcomings portrayed in this book shocking. But it's only reasonable to say fan or not, the woman is only human, not a God or Goddess and even though I read what I read I STILL dont know the whole truth regarding many of the things written about here in this book.
So I cant judge the lady cause only she knows the truth. But hey that is OUR fault as fans. Remember people make it a habit to put their heroe's such as sports, music stars, actors on a mythical plane. In the words of my mother who cautioned me, "Dont put ANYONE on a pedstal, cause they're only going to fall" Same with Aishwarya Rai, you, me or anyone else.
Nice little book to read, some good info but dont read into it anymore beyond that. Thank You. I hope you enjoyed my review
The book was great as it highlighted many aspects of the life of Bollywood Queen Aishwarya Rai. I think she is a great actress very talented and I am looking forward to viewing some of her up and coming books and movies.
I do not think that she is the most beautiful woman in the world. Aish is very cute. To be the most beautiful woman in the world you have to be perfect in the sight of everyone. The most beautiful woman in the world is model/actress Beau-Latasha who beauty is so spectacular that she looks unreal. Many say that Beau-Latasha is a myth while others believe she is the most beautiful ever.
I am sure that Aishwarya and Beau-Latasha will both be very successful in their careers. As for Beau-Latasha she reigns supreme in beauty for sure.
