Kalyan Jewellers teased fans with a sneak peak of Aishwarya Rai's new ad campaign yesterday, and this morning they finally revealed the goods: a stunning full page ad that leaves little doubt that the new mother is ready to return to the spotlight.
In the ad (which is appearing in the Malayalam-speaking state of Kerala) Aishwarya is a traditionalist's dream. She's clad in a full-length ghagra choli and is adorned, as befitting a jeweller's advertisement, with gorgeous lengths of gold and metal work. Aishwarya rests on a bride's palanquin, looking every bit the regal and elegant queen.
Those who worked with Aishwarya on the shoot were apparently quite impressed with her professionalism, and said that motherhood hadn't changed her dedication to getting the shoot right. It's always been said that Aish takes her commercial commitments very seriously, and her attitude on the Kalyan shoot certainly proves she's more than ready for a comeback.
So what's next for the Bachchan bahu? An appearance at the opening of a new Kalyan showroom in Ernakulam on August 19th, and then hopefully some news about a return to films! This November marks the end of her self-imposed one year break from the industry. It'd be great to see her back to work by the new year!
