Birthday Special: Here’s a look at Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s tryst with Tamil cinema

The lovely Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is arguably one of the biggest and decorated names in Hindi cinema today, During her illustrious career, the elegant lady has won the hearts of movie buffs thanks to her impressive performances, good looks, soft-spoken nature and of course flawless style game.

Born on 1 November 1973, the diva has by and large has been associated with Hindi films only. However, every now and then, she has worked in Tamil films as well and proved that Aish mania is above the language barrier. Today, as Aishwarya turns a year older, let us take a look at some of her most notable Tamil films.

Iruvar: The very first film of Aishwarya’s career, ‘Iruvar’ was directed by Mani Ratnam and is regarded as one of the all-time classics of Indian cinema. Also featuring Mohanlal and Prakash Raj in the lead, it highlighted the link between cinema and politics in the state of Tamil Nadu, ruffling a few feathers along the way.

Jeans: Released in 1998. This S Shankar directorial was a light-hearted romantic-comedy and ultimately ended up being India’s official entry to the Oscars. It, however, failed to make the cut. Besides Aish, ‘Jeans’ also featured Prashanth in the lead. The supporting cast featured names such as Nasser and Raju Sundaram.

Kandukondain Kandukondain: Loosely based on ‘Sense and Sensibility’, the film was directed/ co-written by Rajiv Menon and hit screens in 2000 after several delays. Boasting of some lifting tunes from maestro AR Rahman,  ‘Kandukondain Kandukondain’ saw Aishwarya work alongside the likes Ajith Kumar and Mammootty. Shot in Tamil, it was dubbed into Telugu and released under the title ‘Priyuraalu Pilichindi’.


Enthiran: Aishwarya starred opposite the legendary Rajinikanth in this Shankar directorial and made quite an impact with her performance. Released in 2010, it set the box office on fire and earned rave reviews along the way courtesy its gripping screenplay and visual effects.

 

Raavanan: Based on the ‘Ramayana’, ‘Raavanan’ was directed by Mani Ratnam and received favourable reviews upon release. In it, Aishwarya was seen alongside Tamil superstar Vikram and impressed us with her performance.

Oh, and here is more of Aish in ‘Jeans’

    So, basically Aishwarya’s fans are trolling (under anonymity) someone who opined what she / he felt about Aishwarya? How are you any different by spewing so much venom?

      LOL. Nice try to act innocent. It’s not a opinion, it’s an attack on her character. Aishwarya’s fans are not malicious like you troll. If you can’t say something nice on someone’s birthday, keep silent, no need to spread hatred.

        Innocent? I am the devil’s advocate who would care less for your idol’s birthday! The point is you fans are the biggest trolls.

          Nobody isn’t a bigger troll than you MORON! You wouldn’t even spare ur parents, that’s why they left you. Accept it you are a LOSER and move on. ☺

            Tsk tsk. For the love of your hag, you are attacking me personally. My parents and all my aunts, uncles, my friends’ parents and the kaboodle dislike your idol.

            You are mistaken.. All your family, friends and relatives dislike a USELESS PIECE OF GARBAGE like YOU.. Accept it nobody loves you.. You are lonely and miserable and nobody likes your unhealthy company, that’s why you spread hatred and negativity all around.. The sooner you realize how bad you are, the quicker you can get treated for your crappy mentality..

            Again, for the love of your forgotten idol, you are attacking with all that crap. Keep going, you little worm. When the apocalypse hits your sorry rear, your idol won’t come to help you.

            Worry about your dirty rear because God and Karma gonna make you pay for your bad doings and you would have nobody to help you because everyone has abandoned you.

            My Karma is not directed at blindly worshipping a talentless actor. There are far more beautiful people on this planet than her.

            So says the Talentless, Jobless TROLL about an actress who is million times more successful than you and trillion times more successful than you.. God is watching your hatred and your bad doings..

            My God did not tell me to forget the Almighty and worship a human being who is only famous for her looks, her affairs and her marriage. And no one is spreading hate here. You fans are deluded. You seem to be far more idle, sitting there and talking crap to someone who does not like Aishwarya.

            Yeah, you are doing bhajan here, not spreading hatred.. Even God can see your dark soul.. If her fans worship her, it’s their wish.. Tumhaare pet mein kyun dukh raha hai??? Go find a job, instead of sitting idle and hating one someone million times better than you in every aspect.

      The most senseless, hatred, meanest comment ever…. You are full of hatred, have ugliest mind. Hope you feel better soon. Take care

        Hello Aishwarya’s flatterer. I don’t have an ugly mind – I am a humanitarian working on global health issues and doing my part to help the needy in my capacity and working on ways to reduce my carbon footprint. So, I certainly don’t have an ugly mind. The lady whom you so worship is exactly what I said in my earlier comment – fake to the core. She won an international beauty pageant and all her “glorious” humanitarian work was only to garner her hold in Bollywood. You and your likes won’t understand – truth is hard to swallow.

          Anonymous

          Lol.. Talentless, Jobless TROLL (Queen_Rani commenting anonymously) lying about being a humanitarian and helping the needy.. A true humanitarian wouldn’t spread negativity and hatred on someone’s birthday and blow it’s own trumpet.. First clean ur soul and help ur parents, before boasting about ur fake humanitarian work.. And that’s the truth about you which you find it difficult to swallow..

            Anonymous

            You have some serious psychological issues that you are undermining someone’s efforts. If it feeds your soul to flatter Aishwarya, do that by all means. Who is spreading hate here? It is my opinion about a so-called epitome of beauty who has the power to help the needy, but won’t.

            Anonymous

            Agreed. You can’t hide behind the mask of anonymity and leave hate comments. Even if you are a humanitarian like you claim, it doesn’t make you a better person when you are unkind to people. Why single out Aish anyway? I run an orphanage btw 😉

          If you what you are saying you are, then you won’t hate someone on their b’day. Let your work speak how great you are. SHE does a lot of charity work and opportunist???? Really?? She is Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, a very humble, thankful, down to earth, kind person. And again if you are what you are saying you are(which is definitely not true), then mind your own business. Use your precious time helping others not showing hatred towards others

            Thanks for saying this.. But how will the troll mind it’s own business and help others? Talking ill about others and being unkind to other people is the troll’s job (especially on someone’s birthday as u said).. The irony is that it shows how inhuman the troll is..

          Yeah, jealous of Aishwarya who is thousand times more good-looking, million times more successful and trillion times more happy than a Talentless, Jobless, Loveless TROLL like you.
          The troll is so coward that the troll uses names of legends like Madhubala and Waheeda Rehman to hide it’s ugly self.

            What do you really know about schizophrenia to use it so casually here? Having an opinion is one thing, but talking about a serious medical condition, just to be spiteful is another. If this nourishes your body and mind, here – happy nth birthday to your dame. Happy now? Now go back in the hole from where you came from.

            I am a doctor (whether a troll like you believes it or not) and I know better than you about schizophrenia and I can see your symptoms..
