In the last couple of years, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan received flak for her post-pregnancy weight gain (she gave birth in November 2011) every time she made an appearance at apublic event. But in May 2014, the actor stunned her critics when she walked the red carpet at a film festival in France in a shimmering gold gown. She kept her detractors silenced recently too, when she went to the Commonwealth Games sporting a trench-coat dress and beehive hairstyle.
Apparently, the reason behind Aishwarya’s weight loss is her daughter, Aaradhya. A source close to the actor reveal, “Everyone’s been asking her about the secret of her slender figure, especially after her two back-to-back international event appearances. She’s lost all the weight because of Aaradhya, who keeps Aishwarya on her toes all the time.”
The toddler also accompanies her star mother to events and work assignments around the world. “Aishwarya is a very hands-on mother, so she’s around her daughter all the time,” adds the source.
The insider also adds that, just like her father Abhishek Bachchan, Aaradhya also talks nineteen to the dozen. “She speaks to her mother’s friends and relatives on the phone and keeps chattering all day,” says the source.
