Aishwarya Rai, the world’s most beautiful woman: Too fat?

Bollywood has many comparisons to its sister Hollywood, but publicly admonishing actresses to be pin thin is not one that usually is heard of.

Times of India newspaper has reported it’s been an up and down time for gorgeous star Aishwarya Rai. The former Miss World has lost, gained and then lost weight again for back to back film roles.

Rai was most recently asked to lose weight for her upcoming role in Dhoom 2 (Big Bang 2), which is being shot in Namibia, Africa – famously the recent temporary home to new mum Angelina Jolie, who many consider to be the western Hollywood counterpart of Rai in beauty and fame.

Deepika, Rai’s personal trainer, is putting the nicknamed “Ash” through two-hour workouts starting at 4 a.m. every morning.

“Ash is a very dedicated actress and she is working to get into the skin of her role,” Rai’s manager, Hari Singh, told the Times of India newspaper.
