Aishwarya Rai is feeling a bit nostalgic for her movie star days.
The Bollywood icon, who hasn't made a movie since 2010's "Guzaarish," posted a Facebook photo on Wednesday that showed the 39-year-old beauty in character for the 2009 film "The Pink Panther 2."
In it, the "Bride and Prejudice" star shows off her Miss World looks with a halo of raven hair floating around her flawless face and sporting a beautiful cream dress (and a teasing smile). Is it any wonder the mom-of-one was called the Most Beautiful Woman in the World?
The pic is making us wish Ash would hurry up and start making films again! The Cannes Film Festival regular, who is married to Bollywood actor Abhishek Bachchan (and daughter-in-law to the legendary actor Amitabh Bachchan), was rumoured to be doing a song for the upcoming Sanjay Leela Bhansali film "Ram Leela" but Bhansali has shot down those rumours. Drat!
So will we see Aishwarya appear in a film anytime soon? It's not very likely the devoted mom, who is on a self-sabbatical to take care of daughter Aaradhya, will be returning to her day job in the near future. But that doesn't mean that she can't party now and again!
