Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan will be turning 42 on 1 November. The Bachchan Bahu has always mesmerised people with her elegance, beautiful looks and of course, acting skills.

She has not only come out as one of the ace actresses and model, but also as an ideal mother, wife and daughter-in-law.

She is married to Abhishek Bachchan, with whom she has an adorable daughter, Aaradhya. The former Miss World is the daughter-in-law of megastar Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan.

After five long years, she is back in the film industry. Last seen in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's "Guzaarish" opposite Hrithik Roshan, her comeback film is Sanjay Gupta's "Jazbaa".

"Jazbaa", which was released on 9 October, has garnered appreciation from all quarters. The female-centric flick was a perfect comeback for Aishwarya in which movie goers saw their favourite actress performing some high-octane, never-before-seen action sequences.

During the 68th Cannes Film Festival, Sanjay and Aishwarya unveiled the first look of the film. The actress looked stunning in her designer outfits at the event.

Meanwhile, the Bachchan Bahu has started shooting for her next project which is Karan Johar's "Ae Dil Hai Mushkil", alongside Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma.

The gorgeous actress will soon appear in director Omung Kumar's biopic on Sarabjit Singh, who died in a Pakistani jail in May 2013.

Also, the former Miss World will feature in Mani Ratnam and Sujoy Ghosh's next movies.

In 2015, Aishwarya has made several appearances at events, award functions and has captured millions of hearts with her charm and beauty.

From Cannes to film promotions, the actress looked elegant and glamorous. Aishwarya, who was criticised due to her post pregnancy weight gain, came back in her stunning avatar this year.
