Rai was born in Manglore (Karnataka). She is from Coorg. Coorg is famous for
its beautiful people. She was younger of the two siblings, her brother being 3
yrs elder. When she was about 4 years old her family moved to Bombay permanently.
Her father worked as a merchant navy officer.
Aishwarya did her schooling
at Arya Vidya Mandir, Santacruz. Academically, she did very well and earned her
position as the head girl of her school. Ash chose the science stream while at
DG Ruparel College, her favorite subject being Zoology. She did her parents proud
by securing 90% in PCB. Aishwarya wanted to do medicine, but circumstances didn't
let her. Instead she chose Architecture and passed the interview at Raheja College
with flying colors. By this time, Aishwarya had started getting modelling assignments.
She then decided to take a break from architecture and concentrate on modelling.
From that point there was no looking back. Ash became a household name with the
pepsi ad campaign. She was crowned Miss Femina World and went on to win the Miss
world title at Sun City in 1994. Ash had now joined the Bollywood film industry
and working under many prestigious banners. Commended by her credibility in acting
( AND DANCING !), she is now considered as one of the hottest Indian actresses

jackets, form fitting gowns for formal wear and chikan salwaar kameez for casual
