Before Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone ventured into the world of Hollywood, there was Aishwarya Rai Bachchan who starred in films like Pink Panther 2 and Provoked. Moreover, the global reach that the actress has even now is phenomenal and can be seen during her appearances at the Cannes Film Festival, every year. In 2005, when Aishwarya was promoting her film, Bride and Prejudice, she appeared on the Late Show with David Letterman and eventually schooled the iconic talk show host on all things India.

When discussing Bollywood, David asked Rai about the languages that she speaks and quipped that in the US, everyone speaks English. In response, Aishwarya eloquently pointed out the diversity in India and how there are multiple languages in the country. Moreover, the 46-year-old actress also explained how Bollywood movies are like musicals as it's a celebration where art imitates life. However, the most epic response that Aishwarya gave to Letterman was when quizzed on why she still stays with her parents as an adult.

"It's fine to live with your parents because it's also common in India that we don't have to make appointments with our parents for dinner," Rai quipped which prompted a response from the audience while leaving David flustered, which does not happen a lot.

The icing on the cake was the clip that was shown from Bride and Prejudice when Aishwarya's characters refer to Americans as imperialists.

She was sassy and catty. No need for those airs and attitude. We find humility missing here. A great deal of make-up yes. A pinch of humility would have worked wonders. Letterman is a senior, respected host. She should have heeded to him

Well of she likes living with parents so much why isn't she cordial with her in laws? Not happy in the big joint Indian family Aishuma? Not working for you? Is that why you have split off your residence while in the same complex? What about your cold relationship with your Bhabi? Tsk tsk. Bharat Naari abroad, gori ki mami at home. Her husband celebrates his niece and nephews milestones on social media, does Aishwarya make even a token post? Where is the family values? She didn't take an appointment with Navya to congratulate her on her degree?

Can I ask why its degrading to sell local products? Her audience is local. Goras aren't paying her bills. Indians are. She is a Desi girl and I appreciate it. I don't like that you are putting down Indians, India and Indian products on a website dedicated to the Indian film industry. Watch Hollywood films. Visit their websites. Buy Loreal. And rewatch Pink Panther and Bride and Prejudice etc. They were such amazing Hollywood productions you won't get bored watching them on repeat.

She came across as very b*tchy. Letterman jokes with everyone and most celebrities give a humorous reply to him. But Aishwarya seemed personally offended and seemed mad.

Tit for tat...Ash you gave him well...anyways it’s your own personal choice whether you wanna stay with your parents or move out...I have cousins in the USA z& they lived with their parents till they got married.. btw they were doctors so no big deal. I guess if you are truly close to your parents you will stay with them & viceversa there’s no hard & fast rule on that . It’s a individual choice at the end of the day.

Why so defensive? Indian family system is suffocating. The parents like to keep the kids under control forever. It's a misconception that family is not important in the West.

I think it is also a misconception that family system in the East is suffocating. Every culture is different. Ash was defensive because the tone of the question itself is offensive. She just happen to be so smart to know where the question leads to.

So awkward to watch Aishwarya being humiliated.

Anonymous 1 month ago

It wasn't sassy...she was humiliated on TV. She was acting so fake and arrogant so Letterman burned her a** and she couldn't do anything except give a stupid reply. Her response was so stupid....why does she think that American kids need an appointment to meet their parents? American kids are very independent but their parents homes are always open for them. Aishwarya's parents are extremely clingy especially her mother who is attached to her like a shadow. Her family's clinginess is strange.

If you look at the 'sassy' reply, you will see that it was a normal question by Letterman. Letterman immediately realized that Aishwarya assumed negative intent in the question, when she replied with a weird comment about Westerners making appointments. Letterman toned it down once he understood that any banter will be misinterpreted as hostile by Aishwarya.

Agree. Just shows a complex that Aishwarya had, by putting another culture down.
