    You don’t know her personality, so your opinion isn’t relevant.

    She is hot. I would love to shove my face in her pu$$y.

    She simply doesn’t have the acting chops for this part. She’s also a little long in the tooth.

    I don’t see her ever being big in the USA. most people don’t know her. I get that she is known in many other countries.

    I will admit I don’t really have any feelings one way or another. I think she is starting to show her age and looks much older than I remember.

    But I am sure her fans will be very excited about any move she makes.

    I’m excited to see this. I’m looking forward to, hoping she’ll accept! I think she’s great. Not only amazingly gorgeous (She was Miss World 1994, for those of you hating, tell me what you’ve won about your “beauty” at least?!). She was great in Devdas and other Bollywood films. Why has the language to be some kind of boundary?

    I really like Aishwarya Rai but it would be nice to see a muslim actress take the part.

    I’ve seen her in only a few films, but the last (on TV) was The Last Legion, where she was actually great. Her fight scenes were amazing. I just did a quick Wiki read on Noor Inayat Khan, and what an interesting person. She was half Indian and half American, and Aishwarya Rai is believable as that physically. She has to be someone who appears unwordly, but also fought the Gestapo tooth and nail when arrested and refused to give them any information while imprisoned. I think Rai could pull that off; besides the fight scenes she had in The Last Legion, she has other fight training; that kind of thing tends to give an actor some real depth. Khan was 30 when she died in 1944; Rai is currently 36. Not that great a difference.

    The Last Legion was one of the worst reviewed movies of the year and Rai was badly miscast and downright awful in it. She needs to stick to posing in her silly movies instead of attempting to portray a fascinating and complex character.

    Most people in the US know who Ash is, so don’t belive the stupid ignorance especially on an entertainment blog.

    This story is facinating.

    It would be nice if they chose an Indian woman who looks Indian and not Afghani like the majority of the Bollywood actresses. Mindy Kaling for starters looks Indian. The only time you will see Indian women on film who actually look Indian and not part British or Afghani are in National Geographic documentaries.
    When is the last time you saw an Indian actor on film who resembles V.J. SINGH! Pshaw! Bollywood and their deep-seated color preferences are shameful.

    THIS is who they should have considered for new Cleopatra movie. Ive seen her look fresh and stunning and sultry and sexy! Have always liked her.

    @Aampal: What a joke ! Aishwarya Rai is an Indian Woman ! And does look Indian ! Yes she have light eyes and light skin ! But India has a variety of indian in all colour and features ! So don’t be ignorant !

    Iffy Miffy Says:

    @anon: Are you out of your mind? For Cleopatra?! Not only does she not fit as it’s clear right away what her background is, if the movie is made it will be a huge production i.e. a lot of money needed so they will need a big, if not a few big stars in it to carry the movie. She’s not a huge star.

    Defender Says:

    @Iffy Miffy: Excuse me, are you stupid? Ash is one of the most popular Indian actresses in the world. We know that Bollywood and Hollywood are completely different industries, but if the industries try to come together and try to do something different and nice, it is not a bad thing. Ash is great for the role of Cleopatra! She kind of looks like her too, even though Cleopatra will be a big Hollywood movie, it doesn’t mean that it cannot have a huge star as Ash. Bollywood movies are also very expensive, the movies can cost upto 300million rupees (3crore rupees). That may not be a large amount of money in dollars, but the movies use also very much money. Ash can be a very varied actress, she can do a lots of things. Even though she may not be a popular actress in Hollywood that doesn’t mean that people don’t know who she is. If she would be cast in this movie and Cleopatra it would be awsome. It would really bring together the Bollywood and Hollyood industry and the outcome would be great, because to different cultures would unite their powers and make some really good movies. So before you judge anything, just think about it for a while and comment after that.
