We, the star stuck people, are so blessed to have Internet in our lives. Isn’t it? How else would we ever be able to keep a close eye on our favourite stars’ real life? Ever since the social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and the latest one, Snapchat became popular, they have surely brought us closer to them. Right from their every day fashion, life happenings, hang out sessions to the make-up products that they use, we know it all. All hail, Internet!
That’s not it, a platform like Quora also helps us to know the real life experience of common people with celebs And we recently spotted one such thread where people shared their real life encounters with the ever-gorgeous Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. Have a read and decide yourself, if she is cute or rude to her fans in real life.
Gorgeous and Ever-Smiling
A Quora user named Nidhi Walke shared her pleasant experience and wrote, “This would be probably one of the best days of my life!! 🙂
I used to work at a visa centre in Mumbai and being a enthusiastic newbie I was always asking all the security n housekeeping ppl if some celeb is coming today. I used to have a sales counter at the exit door near the premium lounge so when some celeb did come we were the first ppl to see them. 😀
One day it so happened that all the security ppl were gearing up for something. It was all hush hush, tight security. When asked someone told me that Aishwarya Rai is visiting the ofc. I skipped a beat on hearing that. Firstly i thought someone was fooling me, but she really was coming that day. I was like super excited. I was going to see the actress I had a female crush on for real. 😉 Wow!! I was bit of nervous to see my favourite actress. I even delayed my lunch fearing I will miss the only chance to see her.
N then she arrived. I was mesmerised by her beauty. Light makeup, untied hair n a beautiful smile. She was carrying Aaradhya in her arms. She was all slim n fit (no post pregnancy fat). She was not wearing any fancy clothes, but still was looking absolutely gorgeous in her jeans n top. She glanced at us for a second n then hurried her way to the premium lounge. That’s it! Only a few seconds I saw her, but that was the best thing happened to me while working there.”
Kind and Considerate
An anonymous user revealed Aish’s considerate and kind personality when she was an established model and not an actor. “I have been in the entertainment business for a long time and was one of the first to interview Aishwarya Rai, when she was a model back in 1993. That was when I was also a somewhat new one in the entertainment business. She was already a successful model and was very polite and answered every question with a smile and sincerity. She was preparing for the Miss India Pageant then and my company wanted to make her as the cover girl for our magazine/ad along with an interview. She would always say that she would give an interview when there is something substantial to talk about rather than repeat the same things over and over. I had arranged a meeting with her for an interview and was about to meet her at her place for the same. Just before I started from my place, I got a call. It went something like this
“Hello..is this XXXXX”
“Hi, this is Aishwarya here, I am sorry to inform you that an important thing came up today here and I won’t be able to do the interview today. Can we do it some other time. I am sure you can understand this situation.”
“Yes sure, we can”
A normal person may feel what is so special about this, but Aishwarya was a big name even back then and I was just an interviewer, she could have just said ‘No, I am busy’ when I visit her place and I would have wasted my time and money in travelling and couldn’t have done anything about it; but she felt it important to call and apologize which felt so special. Later, I interviewed her and it came in our magazine (one of the leading ones in the country at that time; our magazine had record sales with her on cover) and I was extremely happy that Ash is still the same person with lots of positivity and care.”
However, we wonder if things are same now when she relishes massive fan following all across the globe.
The Lucky Guy:
The guy chose anonymity while sharing this experience which makes us doubt the authenticity of this story. However, if it is true, this guy’s dedication surely paid off. “I met Aishwarya Rai during the shooting of Ravan at 11am in the morning. I had 22 hours of journey just to meet her. She was surrounded by her servants and bodyguards. I went to her and told her that I’m a die hard fan of her. She didn’t say anything. She just gave a beautiful smile 🙂 I asked for autograph but she refused saying she can’t give autograph during shooting and told me to wait till evening. I told Aishwarya Rai that I wanted to hold the umbrella for her till evening as I didn’t have anything else to do. Initially she refused by saying that she already had people to do that. But, finally she agreed. I held umbrella for Aishwarya for the whole day. That was the proudest day of my life!
The shooting was over at 8pm. Finally, she gave the autograph!! 🙂
I was amazed by her commitment to work.
I stood behind Aishwarya Rai for totally 9 hours holding umbrella.”
Though there are not many responses to this thread but after reading these incidents, we feel she is an absolute sweetheart.
