ALL THAT GLITTERS…
If unconfirmed reports are to be believed, Indian actress and recent mum Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan is about to ink a multi-million dollar deal with Kalyan Jewellers of India, a landmark campaign that is also said to also include her father-in-law veteran actor Amitabh Bachchan. According to the Times of India (TOI), Mr. Kalyanaraman of the Kalyan group has gone on record to state that the company hopes to conclude the drafting of the deal within the next ten days. “Aishwarya is enjoying her motherhood. Her office told us that she will be ready for the photo-shoot only after she sheds some weight and is back to her glamorous best,” the executive went on to reveal.
Rai-Bachchan is no stranger to ad-campaigns, she is currently a brand ambassador for L’Oreal Paris Cosmetics and Swiss Luxury Watch brand Longines. In the past, she was the brand ambassador for Nakshatra diamonds (a division of DeBeers). Kalyan jewellers (founded by T.S. Kalyanaraman in 1993) is the largest jewellery chain in India and has over 4,000 employees and 32 showrooms across South India, according to wikipedia.org.
