Suhasini said that she gets extremely happy whenever she sees Aishwarya. "I know her as a person; you may see her as a beauty or whatever, but I see her for who she is," she added. "She possesses numerous qualities that the general public is unaware of. For example, if you become unwell, she will be the first person to arrive and care for you. She will advise you on what to eat and she has that. Aishwarya Rai is Florence Nightingale," Suhasini continued.
