The truth about Barbie

The truth about Barbie After there were talks all around about Aishwarya Rai Bachchan being immortalized as a Barbie doll, there was speculation that Genelia D’Souza was considered too because of her doll like and younger face.

Then suddenly it came out that Katrina Kapoor will be the Barbie and she claimed that Ash was not in the running at all.

She also went around telling whoever cared to listen that she’s the first Indian to get that privilege.

Well, many ridiculed that claim of hers as she holds a British passport.

And Kat might claim that she has nothing against Ash and she respects her and all that, but smart cookie Ash isn’t one to stay quiet without clarifying things.

She said she refused the Barbie doll deal due to her professional commitments.

In fact her representatives were in negotiations with Barbie’s manufacturer Mattel, who planned to give the iconic doll a Bollywood face. But the deal did not take off.

In fact since 1994 when Aishwarya won the Miss World title, the company has made numerous attempts to make a celebrity doll modelled on the Indian beauty.

However, she could never make time for their endeavour, due to her professional commitments. Again on the doll’s 50th anniversary, Aishwarya was approached to appear decked up as a celebrity Barbie but she had to opt out of that too due to her prior commitments with film-makers whose shoots clashed with the events.

A statement issued by Aishwarya’s spokesperson said, “Mattel was keen to have the actress walk the ramp on Lakme Fashion Week ‘Barbie dolled up’ in a winning design as Single Likeness Barbie, which would be unveiled and auctioned for a charity of her choice.”

God alone knows what the whole truth is. Hopefully we’ll get a glimpse of the whole truth one fine day Till then, Katrina can shut up and enjoy it all. -Sampurn Media
