Aishwarya Rai On Motherhood, Weight Issues, & The Hype Around Aaradhya 0

Aishwarya Rai got candid about motherhood, Aaradhya and the furore surrounding her added weight in an interview with NDTV.

Talking about the changes brought in by motherhood, Aishwarya replied, "It is a blessing. A beautiful experience. Beautiful does not suffice to describe it."

About the paparazzi frenzy surrounding her and Aaradhya, "It has been a part of life for a while now… goes with the turf. I would be lying if I said I did not know it would not happen. I was pre-warned."

She said not much should be read into her body language. She said, "What naturally kicks in is your protective instinct…. Kicks in as an involuntary reaction… To your baby, this is all totally new…It is just a natural shielding…Protecting the baby from flash bulbs and the whistles.

When asked about the reaction to her added weight after the baby, Aishwarya said, "(She) did not bother about weight being made a big deal. If it was a concern, I would have stayed hidden. I could have looked better than before if I chose to. I chose to be natural. I have not been bothered or disturbed by it. Many women have thanked me for being myself."

About her comeback, she said she was reading scripts now and that a comeback was on the cards.

Women get jealous and obejectify other women n no doubt they r treated like sh**. I think motherhood is a divine exepreience n u shld live it till you can. She is damn right abt hiding n coming out after loosing weight..which I belive wht other actreeses in her generation did(which is fine too) but she chose to concentrate her time n energy for her kid rather than spending half a day with a trainer. This makes her larger than life..kudos to her to be so strong in spite of al the criticism specially from other owmen..I think tht shows their insecurity

Why is it such a big deal if she chose not to worry about weight loss and all that?!!! Can't people get over the fact that she is not as shallow as most of the other celebs who just care about looking skinny and pretty. Aish has better stuff to do, like take care of her child.

Perhaps she has chosen more imperative issues to place her focus on instead of dieting down to the size of a waif. But to be honest this entire conversation and critical analysis of her appearance makes me uncomfortable, she is a talented actress and more than just her looks. Women who are commenting on here, please do not be baited into objectifying women. As for the heat she is receiving about her return to work, does anyone have an issue with Abhisheck returning to work? Women can be excellent mothers AND have excellent careers at the same time.

Sensible Intelligent woman! And i'm not even a huge fan of hers.
I hope she makes a comeback.

This woman truly baffles me with her lies. Just a few days back she said this in an interview that she wanted to spend all her time with her baby and that was her choice. And here she says shes coming back to films again. Not only that shes been working anyway with her Longines and Kalyan ads.

So how does she have the gall to claim that she is staying full time with her daughter? Or does she think we are fools to believe her lies? You are a working mom so just admit it...no need for all the nautanki. PV please publish this!

Oh yah aishwarya you sure could have "looked better if u had chosen to" cause everyone likes to look their worst, right?

Grow up people!! Stop making up stuff about Aish. Even when she has given an excellent and honest response to the questions, you are still not happy with it.

Please only consider the great scripts Aishwarya, please!!!!

New"I chose to stay natural" women who lose weight are unnatural??
You really need to work on your comprehension skills peabrain. By natural she meant she didn choose lipo to loose weight. she never said women who loose weight are unnatural or staying fat is natural. Its really difficult to loose preg weight. I have seen my sisters taking time loosing weight.

some people can be real jerks...she doesn loose weight they have problem. she looses weight and they still have a problem. Salman khan got over her but his fans never did :P

no comments for the loser who said she went to chicago to get lipo.

The truth is Aishwarya also did all that others do to lose weight - but unlike a Celina or a Malaika or even a Posh, Ash's body was just not able to do it. All the exercise and dieting she did in the start are now slowly taking effect and the results can be seen as in her Longines photos. For those who disagree with this, are you telling me that from pregnancy to Cannes, to AB's birthday she suddenly did some miracle reduction? No, right? Only if she had been doing for sometime, the results will show now, right? So the truth is, she also did as much as other celeb mothers, but because the results were sooo slow for her, her wonderful PR gave it the -I am doing it the healthy way spin - and most of us - not all - fell for that and praised her for it! Ash's PR and Ash-1. General public-0.

some woemn lose weight immediately after the baby without much effort. some women need more time...my mother is slim and so i am, i never did excercise because i was too busy with baby and household work. but people still think i in my early 20's and i am 37.

Anonymous's picture

truth is ash also did all that other would do to lose weight, but she could not lose it easily as other did. i know women who stay slim and still look like teenager witout much effort and other have to put on a lot of effort to stay fit.she is a big time lier...

she has lost all the extra weight slowly and steadily. Now that's a true role model

NewI really like her responses! I know that people who hate Aish will always critize her and say million bad things but I believe her and support her 100% when she says that she could have chosen to be even better looking than before but she chose to be natural.

I am not a celebrity, just a normal working mother but even I felt a lot of pressure to lose weight after each child. It was irritating to hear people comment on my weight because it's a personal choice. I don't know why it's so tough for people so understand that some women like to focus their full energy on thier child and not give a hoot about what others think. The worst part is that you can't win either way. If you lose weight and look really good then they insist that you had work done! Go figure ~

agree with u fully 100% :)

aishwarya is most likely more attractive, richer, famous than all of you.

So her baby is not even 1 and she wants to come back to films? and u guys bash others for coming back after years when their babies are older.

I hate that she says it is a beautiful experience. Will any mother say, I am rotting since becoming a mom! Stupid reply. PINKVILLA POST THIS.

----------------------------------------------------
What not u hate about this woman? Every woman says the same thing about her new found status on being mother. also u should not forget that she is asked such question. I am sure other celebrity moms also will say the same thing. U also seem to forget that she is a human being and she is allowed to express her opinion about what she feels about motherhood. ..she is enjoying it.....I am proud of the fact ash has gracefully embraced motherhood.. she has sacrificed her superstardom when she could have hired help easily but she is devoting so much time for her baby...that says a lot. she is a role model...

I see ur claws coming out only if the post is related to ash.....Pinkvilla please publish this...

"I chose to stay natural" women who lose weight are unnatural?? why does this woman always have to bring down others to prove herself right....why dont you just admit that you dont want to step out of your comfort zone, you are just to rigid and unprofessional. and we all know how many botox injections you had how many surgeries , skin bleaching and hair dyes you go through to "stay natural".

zzzzzzz same old memorized filler phrases.... so basically just like every other interview for her brands. but i did laugh a bit at 'if i chose to i could have looked better overnight' - ha ha sour grapes ash.

She said she could've used modern science to look even better than she did before but she did not resort to . Hmmm...what she said kind of gives you an idea about how her features changed over time since she started on show biz you know.

she has suddenly lost oodles of weight which is impossible if you go with the natural way of exercising and diet. She just came back from chicago...where she went under the knife...
