Aishwarya has made considerable contribution to Indian cinema by her talent and beauty. She's also the first actress to represent the face of Bollywood in the West. Akshay, on the other hand, has emerged as a darling of masses over the years. He has to his credit a number of superhit films.

Both Ash and Akshay don't come from families with film background and therefore made their place in the industry by sheer dedication and hard work.

Hearty congratulations to both of them!
