Choice of roles
Aishwarya Rai had a dream start with Mani Ratnam, who has been a loyal director, trusting her even with his 'Rashomon' mis-adventure. From 'Iruvar' to 'Ravan', Aishwarya got perhaps the most plum roles ever made in Bollywood. Did she do justice to her roles? We reserve our comments.
Katrina perhaps had no misconceptions about what awaits her in Bollywood. Was any role tailor made for Katrina and Katrina only? In all fairness, Bollywood could have given her a miss and we wouldn't have noticed. Her roles could have suited any one - from Lara to Priyanka to any of those ambitious starlets.
