New Delhi, October 09, 2012
She may have been out of the Indian film industry for a while but former Miss World Aishwarya Rai Bachchan never ceases to make international headlines every now and then.

After landing in the hot seat with hosts Oprah Winfrey and David Letterman, the actress may soon be interviewed by veteran journalist Sir David Frost on his new show, The Frost Interview, reported Mid-Day. Not only that, Ash is reportedly one of the first celebs to feature on the show.

Sir Frost is better known for his interviews with former US President Richard Nixon, which were subsequently made into a film and a play.

The series of one-hour-long interviews will feature a person who has changed, or contributed greatly to his or her line of work.

“Frost will also interview Sir Paul McCartney and Archbishop Desmond Tutu in separate episodes,” a source told Mid-Day.

Interestingly, it was also reported that Sir Frost will be coming to Mumbai and even attend Big B's birthday bash.
