An old video of Aishwarya Rai is going viral in which she is seen attempting to hide her bruises, and talk about inner beauty
Aishwarya Rai's personal and professional life is very difficult to hide from media and public; her news always creates a stir in the entertainment field.
An old video of Aishwarya once again came into the limelight last weekend. In the video, she sports brown sunglasses at an event where she wins an award. During the time, many reports said that she was hiding her bruises, talking about inner beauty. In her speech, she said she was injured and hurt her eye area when she slipped and fell down a staircase.
Aishwarya said, "I slipped and fell down the staircase right outside the house, but I thank God and my parents ke I didn't have a big accident, no bones broken. To logon ne kaha ke (people said) 'aaj tum ye roop leke kyun ja rahi ho?' I mean why do you want to go looking like this to a function. But, to that, I would like to say, this is the one opportunity I get to thank my audience and this industry because of whom I am here on the stage and because of whom I am getting this award. I wouldn't let this opportunity go by. So, thank you very much, it's heart-felt. This award is for the artform of acting, for talent which goes beyond what you see. So that's what I have come to acknowledge."
Many reports during the time stated that she was dating Salman Khan and was allegedly physically abused by him.
In an interview with India Today, Aishwarya had confirmed that her then-boyfriend had physically abused her. She had said, "He would call me and talk rubbish. He also suspected that I was having affairs with my co-stars. There were times when Salman got physical with me, luckily without leaving any marks and I would go to work as if nothing happened."
But when Salman was questioned on the same, he gave a different answer, "I have never beaten her. I get emotional and hurt myself. I have banged my head against the wall, but I cannot hurt anyone else. If you won't fight, that means there is no love between you, I will not fight with an outsider; when we fight, it is all because of our love."
Both Salman and Aishwarya worked in one of the most iconic movies of Bollywood, Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, who showcased a beautiful love story.
The lead actors Salman Khan and Aishwarya Rai's reel chemistry was unmissable, and it later carried on into real life at the time. The movie also featured Ajay Devgn, who along with his co-stars stole the show.
