After the birth of Aaradhya Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai was in the news for her "oodles of weight gain". Now the actress is in the spotlight following a comeback in a recent jewellery advertisement, where she appeared drastically slimmer.
As the brand ambassador of Kalyan Jewellers, the actress took to endorsing the brand, looking absolutely gorgeous and as her old self in the new commercial for the jewellery group. It seemed that the actress worked very hard to shed all of her post-pregnancy weight and is back to her earlier physique.
The 37-year-old actress, who is now a part of the group's "Golden Girl" campaign, is looking like a golden goddess in the new advertisement which was shot by Shrikumar in Mumbai. According to reports, Aishwarya has been shooting for the print and television commercial for the past few weeks, and the images were revealed on the group's Facebook page on Monday.
Along with the photos of the advertisement, reports suggesting that the shots are photo-shopped also surfaced online. Also some websites threw in their doubts suggesting whether the advertisement is really a recent shoot or one taken in her pre-pregnancy days.
Although dubbed as the "Most Beautiful Women in the World", Aishwarya made national headlines calling her "fat" following an event where she was spotted with a double chin.
But the actress silenced her critics, with her appearance at the 65th Cannes Film Festival, where she seemed to have lost some weight and looked stunning in an Abu Jani-Sandeep Khosla emsemble.
A month after walking the red carpet at Cannes in May, she appeared in public again to attend the opening of the Bulgari Hotel and Residences in London. During that time the actress seemed to look much slimmer in a Sabyasachi black and white anarkali kurta and open hair. With each public appearance after Cannes Ash is looking trimmer and her weight loss can be seen on her face.
A source told The Times of India that "Ash did a photo-shoot for a jewellery brand. Having lost oodles of weight, there is a marked glow on her face and she looks even more ravishing now."
Now that Aishwarya appears to be back to her slimmer self in just two months since her Cannes appearance, and with her recent stunning shoot, fazed fans and critics alike expect the actress to make an even bigger entrance on the silver screen.
Here is the video which shows the leaked footage of the shoot:
