For the actress, her mother and daughter Aaradhya’s eyes are beautiful. “Eyes are windows to the soul,” she said. Aishwarya thinks being Indian is being beautiful. “We are rooted, consider values in the highest esteem, we are simple people. We are very hardworking and we know to retain respect, love and commitment, tradition. Being Indian is being beautiful.” On the topic of actors opting go under the knife, she said, “For me it is all natural ... thank you parents and God.”
