Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was a model before she stepped into the world of films.
After she won the crown of Miss World in 1994, she overnight became a sensation and eventually became one of the top actors of the Hindi film industry, also popularly known as Bollywood!
While she has given a fair number of hits, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was never known for her acting prowess! Guess why? The problem is her beauty; her beauty overshadowed her good work and she continues to be called as the most beautiful woman in the world by the Indian press.
Here are some of the rare pictures of the lass which many may never have seen earlier.
It is a pity that we never saw them work together! In Mela Aishwarya Rai Bachchan had a cameo and was paired with the perfectionist’s brother Faisal Khan.
She was a known name in modelling. Her confidence in front of camera was mesmerizing!

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan became a brand ambassador of sorts for India.

Today Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is synonymous with being fair but her complexion was on the wheatish side during her modelling and Miss World days! Later, she just became the Snow White of India! Also, unlike in her later years, Aishwarya in her early days had no qualms in showing skin.
