Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's quotes

  • I'm just an average woman with average concerns.
  • Life will take its toll on all of us. We get injured, we get old. It's really sad to try to run away from these harsh realities of life. Looks are not everything. I am not going to look beautiful all the time.
  • You give to the world your greatest gift when you're being yourself.
  • I believe that as an actress all my fears and phobias exist till I sign on the dotted line for a film.
  • I don't believe in proving a point to anybody. Nobody is that important.
  • It's strange that Rakesh Roshan thinks I look older than Hrithik Roshan. In fact, he's approached me for all his home productions.
  • I always knew I would be successful. So there was no element of surprise.
  • I know for a fact that if there's a role which I am suited for, I'll be signed on. I'll never go begging.
  • I only entered Miss India after pressure from friends and because I thought it would be a laugh.
  • Comedy is difficult for an actor. But I think I have a good sense of humor and manage to make people laugh and make them happy.
  • Women in the industry have been exploited very often, but there are some actors who belive that the short cut to stardom is through nudity or exposure. Such success is, in fact, very short-lived.
  • I have never done a kissing scene nor do I have intentions to.
  • [About turning down the role opposite Jackie Chan in The Myth (2005)] I did not have the required dates as I was busy with the shows abroad. I had to turn down the film. I have no regrets because there is always a next time.
  • [in September 2004] I am not comfortable about kissing or nudity. I am clear about what I want. I'll work only with good directors who'll offer me two-dimensional roles. The director and the role are most important.
  • It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice.
  • Life is a stage, and we are all characters. So play your part and play it well!
  • [In 2006] Good films are good films regardless of being made in India or abroad. I believe a great story transcends cultural lines and language barriers.
  • [In 2006] My reason for choosing a film is not to impress people. I don't choose films for the box office.
  • [In 1999] I'm like the Terminator. I won't stop till I win. Just everything must be perfect.
