Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is one of those stars who has carved a niche in the Bollywood film industry in such a way that no matter what her critics have to say about her she always manages to come out of every tight spot with grace and aplomb.
Not very long ago there was some news about most of her movies not doing well at the box office, yet she was considered one of the most bankable stars in a movie, which just goes on to say that she is a very popular star that cannot be avoided even with our eyes closed.
However there are still many who believe that Aishwarya has more of her starry good looks than her acting talent to prove her worth in the industry.
But then if that was the case then how come she still holds the position amongst the top A -grade actresses when many of her contemporaries have laid down their arms and taken a back seat to give the newbies a chance?
Well the fact remains that Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has stood the test of time and is now placed on a pedestal where she just cannot be questioned about her star status, irrespective of the fact that any or all of her films fail at the box office or not. Thus her popularity never seems to die down amongst her devoted fans.
