Mumbai, May 5, 2010: It’s another feather in the cap of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan as the illustrious TIME magazine has included her in its list of top 100 alumnae. The magazine’s prestigious list also has some of the biggest and most iconic names from across the world including the likes of Condoleezza Rice, Stella McCartney, Sarah Palin and Nora Roberts among many other top women of the world today.
A source close to the actor reveals, “Ash is evidently delighted with the development. When she first burst into the entertainment industry, her only goal was to do quality work and she’s always tried to push the benchmarks that she set for herself. That’s why she became the biggest brand in the West and has managed to build on it like no other actor.”
The informer adds, “The list has the biggest names in the world and Ash in the only Indian to be featuring in it. It’s a huge honour. It just goes to show why she is offered the best films nationally and internationally. She has a lot of Hollywood offers and some big announcement on that front might soon happen.”
