Bollywood diva and former Miss World Aishwarya Rai Bachchan stunned audiences with her performance at the 50th edition of Ponds Femina Miss India 2013, which also marked her comeback on stage post her pregnancy.

The 39-year-old actress, whose career took a backseat after the birth of her daughter Aaradhya Bachchan, looked stunning in a sparkling outfit that she wore on stage.

Aishwarya danced to one of the tracks of her last movie (Guzarish) which was released before she took a break from films in 2011. She seemed to have lost a considerable amount of weight and performed some complex steps choreographed by Shiamak Davar.

The actress was constantly criticised for not losing weight which she ignored saying that she wanted to enjoy motherhood.

Sixteen months after Aaradhya's birth the actress seemed to have shed the pounds. She was often compared with actress Shipa Shetty Kundra who lost around 18 kilos in just nine months after giving birth to her son Viaan Raj Kundra on 21 May, 2012. The comparison reached its peak after Shilpa won the Wellness Icon Award by a major media house.  

Still, Aishwarya did not rush to any fitness trainers to lose weight. The actress took a break of almost two years and hardly seemed bothered about her figure.

Despite her weight the actress was seen in several advertisements including those of L'Oreal and Kalyan Jewellers.

With her recent dazzling performance at the Ponds Femina Miss India 2013, Aishwarya will soon be flooded with offers from various directors and producers.

Recently, it was rumoured that the actress will return to the big screen opposite 25-year-old Varun Dhawan in Sriram Raghavan's dark thriller.
