Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is one of the most sought-after actresses in Bollywood today. With as many as three upcoming releases in the form of ROBOT, ACTION REPLAYY and GUZAARISH coming up, she is perhaps the only actress to have a very successful acting career even post marriage.

The actress says, "I don't think it would be right on my part to gloat in this very generous observation. There have been many actors and actresses who have continued working post marriage for years. However, in the recent times, there has been a preconceived idea that probably leading ladies would not continue to work. I never paid attention to it. Even as a single girl, I never really thought about it. I never even wondered what will happen to me after marriage.

"I chose acting as a profession. Even at the beginning of my career, I never thought 'Will it would be wise for me to play this role as a new girl? Should I do this later? Is a very girly role?' I'm the same girl who did IRUVAR at the beginning of my career. I didn't say give me four songs and short skirts and let me just jump around. That's the kind of mindset with which I kept going very strongly."

The 36-year-old further added, "Having said that, I must say that it does feel really nice that I have got meet a lot of like-minded professionals. I might want to work after marriage but there have to directors who want to work with me. There have to be directors who have to see me in roles and characters. I'm so blessed. It's so wonderful that my faith has been kept in the professionals that I have worked with. Directors like Shankar, Mani Ratnam and Sanjay Leela Bhansali came to me with scripts. They didn't say 'Now you are married. What should we do with your role?' None of the directors thought that."

We hope she continues working in the same way for many more years and directors keep on offering her different roles.
