Bollywood Buzz: Elle 'bleaches' Ash...

Fashion mag kicks off controversy for whitening the skin of cover-girl Aishwarya Rai Bachchan

 Elle ‘bleaches’ Ash

 

The Indian edition of fashion bible Elle magazine has embroiled itself in a race row by “bleaching” Bollywood star Aishwarya Rai Bachchan who figures on the cover of its December 2010 issue.

Readers who found the glamourous star known for her good looks whiter than her usual colour reacted very sharply.

The digitally “bleached” complexion of the former Miss World is now part of a major controversy in the Indian media since her skin looks several shades lighter than her normal colour.

Her skin has been whitened even in the pictures carried inside the magazine.

Among the innumerable angry comments posted online by fans read: "It's annoying because it seems like lighter skin is always in fashion as if darker skin is something to be frowned upon."

Airport troubles spare no one it seems...not even Aishwarya Rai. The actress had a harrowing time at the Chennai airport after some of her luggage went missing, according to media reports.

In Chennai to attend a promotional event, Ash discovered that some of her personal belongings had got lost in transit, Indian television channel NDTV reported.

Aishwarya reportedly maintained a professional calm even as the airlines admitted its mistake and scrambled to find the missing baggage. She even offered to attend the event in her track suit, the channel said.

Despite the airport hiccup, the organisers saved the day by arranging designer clothes and matching shoes for Ash.

The incident had a happy ending after the star's lost baggage was finally found.
