When Aishwarya Rai refused to answer a journalist’s question about nudity
Aishwarya Rai is known not only for her beauty but also for shutting down interviewers who ask her questions that she is uncomfortable answering. She was once asked what she thought about exploring nudity on screen. She not only declined the question but also inquired as to whether the French journalist was a ‘gynecologist.’
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s interview from more than a decade ago was recently shared on Reddit. No, I’m not interested in exploring (nudity). I’ve never done it. He kept pressing her, so she turned to face the camera and muttered, “I feel like I’m being pushed around” like I’m speaking to my gynecologist. I mean, who am I speaking to? Let’s keep it simple, brother. You’re a journalist.”
Fans praised Aishwarya for her response to the interviewer. One of the viewers said that it seemed as if they had chosen the worst interviewer and cameraman off the street, both of whom were unaware of what the hell Bollywood was.
One of the viewers stated that it was a common occurrence in Hollywood, and Aishwarya’s reservations about such scenes hurt her chances in the industry. “Creep,” the comment read. Why was he concerned with whether or not she would perform naked scenes? If she’s already played such a part, it makes sense to inquire about it. One thing I despise about HW is that any actress who wants to be a major female lead has to go through a graphic scene in one of the films. It’s mandatory for everyone from Margot Robbie to Jennifer Lawrence to Saoirse Ronan to do one so that the audience can ogle and obsess over it. You can bet that if Ash had done it, more doors would have opened for her in HW.”
Aishwarya has recently been very selective in her film choices. She was most recently seen as a superstar in the 2018 film Fanney Khan. Ponniyin Selvan: I, Mani Ratnam’s epic period drama, is currently on her radar. She plays two characters in the film.
