Aishwarya Rai Bachchans iconic status never comes in the way of her duties as a mother, a wife, daughter and daughter-in-law — in that order. She says she has tried to keep the atmosphere around daughter Aaradhya “as normal as possible”.

Just how she manages to fulfil all her and still finds time to be one of India’s most recognised celebrities, is a mystery. Not to the lady herself, though.

“It’s something I’ve grown up with. From the time I was 18, I’ve been juggling with many responsibilities. My day begins at 5.30 a.m. It has been that way from the time I remember. Of course, after Aaradhya my priorities have changed completely. She comes first, everything else is secondary,” Aishwarya said.

“Do you know Aaradhya saw her mother’s film for the first time? I mean, she had of course seen me on television and doing songs. But ‘Fanney Khan’ is my first film where she actually sat through the whole film,” she added.

And what did Aaradhya think of her performance?

“I think her smiling eyes said it all. She had actually seen me shoot a part of my song in ‘Fanney Khan’. So when she heard there was a screening, she expressed a wish to see the film with all her friends and their parents. So all her friends came with their parents and had a good time.

“I was happy to let ‘Fanney Khan’ be the first film Aaradhya watches. It has a positive message for viewers of all ages and there’s nothing in it that children cannot watch. In any case, Aaradhya is constantly singing and dancing at home, sometimes to my songs, sometimes to her father’s and her grandfather’s songs. It’s a normal household. We’re trying to keep the atmosphere around Aaradhya as normal as possible.”

Aishwarya is not one of those star moms whose child is seen more with the nanny than the mother.

Laughing at the observation, Aishwarya said: “Aaradhya does have a nanny. In fact, I am told I should have two of them because the one that I have, tends to take off on long holidays. But it doesn’t really matter. I like doing everything for Aaradhya myself, though with my kind of schedules it is not always possible to do so.”

But Aishwarya’s mother helps out.

The actress and former beauty queen said she grew up in an atmosphere where her mother was always hands-on.

“So it never even occurred to me that it could be otherwise.”

Managing her sprawling career and her domestic responsibilities is not easy.

“Every home maker who is a working woman is a hero. It requires a lot of juggling with time. And a supportive husband, which I luckily have.”

Aishwarya is looking at doing handpicked roles, like the one in Karan Johar’s “Ae Dil Hai Mushkil” and now “Fanney Khan”.

“I always knew my role in ‘Fanney Khan’ was small. When I was promoting the film, I never gave the impression that I was there throughout the film. Rakeysh Mehra and his wife P.S. Bharathi (who has co-produced ‘Fanney Khan’) narrated the idea to me and I loved it.”

It’s almost as though the role of the pop diva was written for Aishwarya.

“That’s how the audience have perceived my presence. Once I was on board, I became totally involved with the development of the character, her relationship with the character played by Rajkummar Rao, her clothes, the song… I loved the concept. And Anil Kapoor as the father of the daughter brought his personal emotions into the part. He was so sincere.”

Mehra has said Aishwarya contributed a lot to her character.

She says it was a “small but pivotal role”.

“I don’t look at my roles in terms of the footage. To me, the role should define my personality and the character I am playing. But now Rakeysh needs to do a full-fledged film with me.” (IANS)

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan Feels Need For More Awareness Among People Regarding Cancer

Actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, who supported a Women’s Cancer Initiative (WCI) event here, says people generally need to be more aware about the disease as early detection can give them a better chance at a cure.

Aishwarya interacted with the media when she supported WCI’s Soul Stirrings event, hosted by Tata Memorial Hospital here on Tuesday.

The actress and former Miss World pointed out that there are many myths in the country about cancer as a disease.

“There are so many myths and misconceptions in our country that it is astonishing to realise and recognise that there are so many people even in this day and age who believe that a disease like cancer could possibly be contagious to us. That’s shocking, but to many it seems that’s a fact.

“That just boils down to lack of awareness, education, access to information, recognising what this disease is all about and the step you need to take as simple as early detection,” she said.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan said it is important to educate people and create awareness among them about cancer.

“Events such as these have come together to draw attention and raise awareness, increase dialogue, make information more accessible to people and have people coming for their regular check-ups for early detection because that in the course of action is referred to as a baby step, but it is the most important step to a possible cure of the disease when a patient has it.

“So, earlier detection gives you a higher chance at a cure and that’s a possibility that every person should humanly have a right to access. We hope this early detection of curable cancer in women will be an important component of the cancer control program in India.”

She applauded WCI’s event for supporting and taking care of various issues related to cancer, especially amongst underprivileged women. (IANS)
