Aishwarya Rai to wear bikni in 'Dhoom-2'

The fierce competition among the Bollywood starts has forced each and every actress to be prepared to do skin shows and body exposures by wearing scant clothes in movies. Incidentally, the former world beauty like Aishwarya Rai has readied herself to wear a bikni in 'Dhoom-2'.

Rani Mukherjee and Preity Zinta, had to fall in line by enacting such like scenes in their respective 'Black' and 'Salaam Namastay'.

Aishwarya is a hit with Indian fans

Bollywood icon Aishwarya Rai has set the screen on fire for years - and now firecracker makers are endorsing that as well. Rai, former Miss World and Indian cinema's most prominent face across the world, is the most prominent cover girl on firecracker boxes as India gears up for Diwali, the Hindu festival of lights celebrating the victory of good over evil, which falls this year on November 1.

Those boxes which sport her photo are selling like hot cake, with people queuing up to buy the ‘Ash’ firecrackers. Vendors have cashed in on the trend and most Diwali stalls are now selling firecrackers with her picture.

Rai is a superstar in India. She has made more than 30 movies and has served on the Cannes Film Festival jury.

Bollywood faces are a big draw on the product wrappings, but some current and former Hollywood heartthrobs - like Marilyn Monroe and Kate Winslet - are also endorsing Indian firecrackers.

Aishwarya Rai: World's Most Beautiful Woman

"Queen of Bollywood" to Land in Hollywood

India's top female actress, Aishwarya Rai, is ready to take on Hollywood. In an interview on Sunday's 60 Minutes, CBS's Bob Simon talked with Rai, who is 31, discussing her work in India and her aspirations for the future. Rai, who has starred in more than 30 films in India, is about to begin filming The Mistress of Spices. She will also be appearing in Chaos with Meryl Streep and Singularity with Brendan Fraser.

Although Rai has been called the world's most beautiful woman, she has yet to have an onscreen kiss.

However, once she was crowned Miss World in 1994, she was inundated with offers that she literally could not refuse. Her first film, Iruvar, was released in 1997. In 1997, she won the Best Female Debutante Award for her role in Aur Paar Ho Gaya. She may be best known for her roles in Jeans (1998) and Kandukondain Kandukondain (2000). In 1999, she won the Filmfare award for best actress for Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam. Devdas (2002), in which she starred, is the most successful Bollywood film ever made.

In 2003, Rai became the first Indian actor to be part of the jury at the Cannes Film Festival. She was also hired as part of the L'Oreal Dream Team. She was also listed as one of Time Magazine's "100 Most Influential People in the World Today" and included on Rolling Stone Magazine's annual 'Hot List."

Ash is already playing a Byzantine warrior in The Last Legion for which she is currently shooting in Russia. Mehta’s film would be a second film where she would be required to do some hard core action.

Mehta wants to release the film on August 15, 2007 to mark the 150 years celebration of the 1857 Mutiny.
