There was a time, when I found Aishwarya Rai Bachchan too plastic at times and that non-stop giggling often irked me. However, her recent transformation into a ‘mommy’ has changed my perception about her.
Many of you would pounce upon me for going gaga over the current sexier self of Aishwarya. As an army of servants, helpers, stylists, fitness instructors, dietitians and of course care takers for Aaradhya must be at her beck and call whenever she wants to work out or work professionally, but still there are many reasons that have made me respect this woman more and here are those…
Agree or no, celebrities are role models for many. And not putting on a lot weight during pregnancy ala celebrities, who proudly flaunt a stick thin body and a bump is becoming a rage among mommies. Result? Poor fetal growth, increased chances of miscarriage, increased c-sections and less breast milk production to name a few. At no point during her pregnancy, Aishwarya propagated being thin. She was a well-rounded mommy-to-be, who was happily flaunting all the weight.

While many of her counterparts were racing against time to get back into their pre-pregnancy ten-on-ten figure, Aishwarya not only flaunted her post-pregnancy weight with elan but also gave herself and her body good time to recuperate before getting into the shrinking mode. When media was going berserk creating a hullaballo about her post-pregnancy weight, she was happy showing off that nasty double chin and spending time with her daughter.
Just like you, me and many other mommies, she also slowed down a bit (never quit) on the career front when her daughter needed her. (Remember, she quit Heroine?) And just when Aaradhya, is all set to go to school, she is making a comeback. For your information, her comeback vehicle ‘Jazba‘ is an action film and the poster of the film was recently launched at Cannes.

Protective but not over protective
There was a time said no to a whopping amount of Rs.5 crore, which was offered by a magazine for Aaradhya’s exclusive pictures. Mommy dear chose to shield her daughter from paparazzi as much as she could. She loves her privacy and I think, there’s nothing wrong about it. Cut to present, she doesn’t create much fuss when Aardhya gets media attention, in fact in a recent interview she even said that Aaradhya is learning to deal with limelight.
Mutter N Tochter (Mother n Daughter) Fun!
I take along my girl on certain work assignments, I;m sure even you would be doing this whenever possible. After all, nothing is more peaceful for a mommy that having her kids around. I love the way Aishwarya travels with Aaradhya on official assignments.
Fun at 40!
14 or 40, no one can take away chutzpah from a woman! And I’m loving how Aishwarya is having fum moments whenever possible. Then be it posing for her daughter or taking selfies with her Hollywood friends, she is doing et all!
She might be a plastic beauty, but she’s a pretty real mommy – what say?
