L ife is all about moments that take your breath away; and when that happens, you can never forget the day. One such date in Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's life is November 19. It was on this fateful date 16 years back, that Aishwarya dazzled everyone by winning the Miss World contest and bringing the pageant's crown for the first time to India.
This year, on November 19, Aishwarya saw the release of a special film — Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Guzaarish. It's special for the actor for several reasons — she has teamed up with her hit director Bhansali once again after eight years and also because the film is likely to cap an eventful year with four releases for her — she has not started any other project yet. Incidentally, November 19 also happens to be her dad's birthday.
The number game
S hah Rukh Khan is currently shooting for two films and both have a number in their titles — RA 1 and Don 2. This may be coincidental or otherwise. But Shah Rukh Khan's penchant for numbers is well known — the car the superstar drives has a unique number — 5555.
But one can't help think that the most important digit he would like to lay claim on is the No 1 position.
No direction plans
K ajol appearing onscreen in as many as three films in a year! This has not happened in over a decade, but it happened in 2010 which was a banner year for the actor with My Name Is Khan, We Are Family and the forthcoming Toonpur Ka Superhero.
Ask the famously spontaneous star whether she has any plans of turning director (like hubby Ajay) soon and she says with characteristic candour: “Are you mad? My definition for producers and directors is someone who pays to get ulcers.”
