She is a small town UP girl, now part of the world of glitz and glamour. She is crazy about Salman Khan and her world came to a standstill during the days when Salman’s ‘hit and run’ case verdicts were to be announced. The way she explains her state of mind in those days, it was probably as tough on her as it was on the star’s friends and family and star himself.
Aishwarye Chaubey prayed and fasted and lived like a zombie in those days. We will never know what worked for Bhai: If it was God, the prayers of his Aishwarye like devotees, the team of lawyers led by the senior jurist Salve, a compassionate judiciary or just the letters of law.
And ironically, in spite of being part of the film industry now, Aishwarye has not met her idol.
She closely resembles Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. She is a model and actor and is well on her way to becoming a film star. She defied her family, ran away from it, and landed on Mumbai streets, and suffered hell before she reached where she is now. She has already modelled for a calendar, has done a music video for the new album of AD Boys that was recently launched in a suburban Mumbai hotel.
Apart from modelling and doing music videos, she will also be seen in AR Murgadoss film AKIRA, a woman-oriented film with Sonakshi Sinha in the lead. She is playing the role of a martial artiste in it. She feels she still has to learn a lot and hone her acting skills. She will continue to do films off and on, will concentrate more on modeling to learn how to be comfortable in front of the camera. And the unpretentious small town girl prefers to speak in Hindi.
