Aishwarya Rai walks for watch brand


By Hindustan Times

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan walked the ramp for watch brand Longines in New Delhi for the first time post motherhood. Dressed in a Dolce and Gabbana short jacket over a Dior gown, the former Miss World looked spectacular in the all black ensemble.

Aishwarya Rai sported a watch from the newly launched Longines Saint-Imier collection. The Swiss watchmaker unveiled the new collection to mark its 180th anniversary.

Aishwarya revealed why she protects her baby girl from constant media glare. "I realised this would happen and expected it, and I don't mean it in a bad way but there are people in my life like my parents who aren't used to it. And with my baby with me, it's instinctive. If I see her getting startled or her eyes opening I protect her. It's not intentional that I want to keep her away," she told NDTV in an interview.

The actress, who seemed to be back in shape, isn't bothered about her post-pregnancy weight gain. "It's never been an issue with me. Rather I have moms coming up to me and thanking me, saying that you are just like us. If my weight was an issue, I would be under cover," the news website quoted her as saying.

Bollywood plans
"I am finally reading scripts. There are several offers but am slowly getting around to reading scripts now. I began with Iruvar. My directors have had faith in me and I am willing to push the envelope," Ash told NDTV.

There was buzz about Aishwarya making her comeback in filmmaker Mani Ratnam’s next, based on 1983 novel Rebecca. However, these reports were dismissed by his wife Suhasini.
