Aishwarya Rai: Super flop in Hollywood

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is top actress in Bollywood at present. She started out as a model, then became a beauty queen and then walked into the movie industry. She did movies in Bengali, Tamil, and Hindi language.

Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, Jeans , Iruvar, Taal, Hamara Dil Aapke Paas Hai, Mohabbatein, Devdas, Umrao Jaan, Dhoom 2, Khaki are some of the hit movies of Aishwarya Rai.

In Bollywood Aishwarya Rai did many movies that received both critical and commercial success and there are movies which are not commercially successful but received rave reviews from the critics.

However, the actress has not been so lucky in her Hollywood outing. She did few Hollywood movies but none of them were either commercially successful or received critical appreciation. Still, she is taking up Hollywood assignments.

Her first major Bollywood outing was Bride & Prejudice. Directed by Gurinder Chadha, the movie was adapted from Jane Austen’s popular novel, Pride and Prejudice. The movie failed miserably in abroad and in India.

This was followed by her second venture, The Mistress of Spices. This movie was based on Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni’s novel by the same name. In the movie, she was paired up with Dylan McDermott. This movie also failed miserably. It failed to receive either any commercial or critical success.

Aishwarya Rai then tried her luck again in 2007 by doing two Hollywood movies. She appeared in Jag Mundhra directed Provoked. The movie is based on the real life story of Kiranjit Ahluwalia, an NRI woman who killed her husband after facing domestic violence. Of all her Hollywood movies, this movie received some positive reviews from the critics.

That same year, she also did an action movie titled The Last Legion. The movie was directed by Dough Lefler and produced by Dino De Laurentiis and other. The movie was based on a 2003 Italian novel by the same name written by Valerio Massimo Manfredi. Aishwarya Rai appeared with Sir Ben Kingsley. She played the role of a warrior from Kerala. This movie was not commercially successful and received poor reviews from the critics.

In 2009, Aishwarya Rai appeared in Pink Panther 2. In this detective comedy film, Aiswharya Rai played the antagonist. The movie did fairly well at the box office but Aishwarya Rai did not have a significant presence in the movie. The movie mainly focused on Steve Martin.

Even after her string of failures, the actress in receiving lots of offers to work in Hollywood movies. The recent buzz is that in her next Hollywood outing she would play the role of a Spy Princess.

Aishwarya Rai’s latest Bollywood movie Raavan was not commercially successful but she received good reviews for her acting. She simultaneously shot the movie in two different languages.

Aishwarya Rai is very much successful in Indian cinema but she is not successful in Hollywood. Though the Indian media created lots of hype and hooplas about her working in Hollywood movies, the truth is Aishwarya Rai is a big failure in Hollywood.

It is better that instead of taking up meaningless Hollywood assignments, she focus more on Indian movies.

  8. What is so fake and bogus about it? Has any of movies in Hollywood of Aishwarya Rai become hit? Admiring an actor or actress is good but becoming blind to fact and truth is surely not an Indian quality.

  10. For your information Ash Hollywood movies were very successful. Indian culture is richer than any other cultures in the world. I do not have to lie and I am not Indian. I am American. Not only I watched Ash Hollywood movies many times but now I have these videos and I share with my Indian friends and coworkers.

  12. "For your information Ash Hollywood movies were very successful. "
    Please enlighten all of the ignorant people with your well guarded secret information. If Ash Hollywood movies fail in box office how does it make Indian culture poorer? What is the relationship of Ash movies with Indian culture?

  19. Someone needs to give Ms Aishwarya Rai a more challenging role.

    I would want her to play the title role in the new movie called "MADELEINE"

    In this new movie she will essay the role of
    Noor Inayat Khan who was a wartime British secret agent of Indian descent who was the first female radio operator sent into Nazi-occupied France by the Special Operations Executive (SOE). She was arrested and eventually executed by the Gestapo.

    Given Aishwarya's fiery persona she can do a good job in this role.

    Let us see if a good director and script writer take this up and give her a good role.

  21. This is false news. Bride and prejudice was successful in UK and US. It only failed in India. The same fate with Umrao Jaan which did well in UK and Australia.
    The Last Legion..yes it flopped and Pink Panther 2 was a moderate semi hit. so this site and whoever wrote this is wrong.

  24. I am in Hollywood and for your information Aishwarya Rai is the most well known Indian outside of India - bar none!!!

    There are many huge stars who appear in films that do not succeed with critics nor the Boxoffice but this does not define nor dampen their star power and popularity.

    Aishwarya has passed on many good roles in Hollywood films because her
    loyality to her Indian fans in India is and always has been paramount to her.
    I suggest this writer go pick on someone his/her own size.....an ant for example.

  25. The writer of this garbage of an article should get his facts rite.. Bride and prejudice bombed at the Indian box office.. it was a super duper hit in the west..! it is by far Gurinder Chaddas biggest commercial hit.. get your home work done before writing crap..

  27. This writer cannot stomach Bachchans popularity. Go write lies about your families.

  28. Ash international fame is not only her ethereal beauty she is multi talented super star. We Indians are not the only one who sings Ash praises the whole world is super crazy about global icon Ash. Hollywood, Bollywood, and any Wood Ash is the best in North, South, East, West.

  33. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan does not even have to smoke cigarettes or do drugs like Shahrukh Khan does in order to deliver mega-star performances. It is clear that Aishwarya Rai is simply the greatest in Bollywood (after Amitabh Bachan, of course!).

  38. I agree to this article....its the idiotic fans who makes such farce as if she is god....there are lots of other talented actress in India. Talking of Hollywood have you seen Ash getting any script from top directors of the world like Woody Allen, Spielberg, Eastwood well the list is endless...Hollywood seeks talent and no wonder out of hundred junk movies coming out from India only few are worth praising. It takes guts to tell the truth and to be honest Ash is good looking beyond doub't but her acting cannot be compared with legends like Jaya Bachhan or if you like International world like Meryl Streep ...c'mon world wake up....and face the reality. This article is very much true and only idiots will always deny that.
