Aishwarya Rai Bachchan to be Barbie dollMarch 25th, 2009 - 9:34 pm ICT by Sampurn Wire
As the Barbie doll completes its 50th year, Mattel Toys has decided to launch a Barbie doll based on the looks of beautiful Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. The actress is said to have been approached by the makers, a couple of months back. But Ash wanted to be sure about the entire look of the doll.
We spoke to our source,
“Aishwarya is quite happy and thrilled that she had been approached for this honor. But she is very particular about her image and therefore didn’t want the doll to look anything that she wasn’t comfortable with,”
Further the source also adds that the early reports of the doll have been good and so Mattel Toys is now planning to speed up production and distribute the dolls within India and internationally in countries like United Kingdom and Dubai where Bollywood has a strong fan following, especially Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s fans.
About the Ash’s look our source said, “Ash’s Barbie will be very close to the real life superstar and will come complete with Aishwarya’s green eyes and her designer outfits. In fact leading designers have been approached to create both Indian and Western outfits to go with the Aishwarya Barbie.
With the Aishwarya Barbie Doll all set to hit our shops, the actress will join the ranks of Hollywood divas like Beyoncé Knowles, Elizabeth Taylor and Diana Ross, who have all had their own limited edition celebrity Barbies. -Sampurn Media
