Aishwarya Rai in Shabd (2005)

If we had to do a series of images of awful films where Aishwarya Rai looked amazing - Shabd would hover near the top. Though the film recovered its cost and budget, the movie under performed considering the size of the cast. Aishwarya Rai looked dreamier than ever before - experimenting with her style and wardrobe. Sunjay Dutt as a writer was miscast. Zayed Khan - always in the list of Top Ten Worst Bollywood actors of all time - tying with Fardeen Khan) as a professor was a joke from the get-go.

Watch the songs again and again to see how beautiful Ash Rai was. Is. Forever will be.

Shabana Azmi - cover girl

Age 32 - looking 19 - gorgeous Shabana Azmi on the cover of Filmfare magazine, Sept 1982
Just when you thought she had done it all - bang more incredible performances were pouring out of her. It was the year she was making Masoom - still one of our fav, understated performances.
