Talking to fans during a Q&A session on Twitter, Bollywood actor Aishwarya Rai Bachchan said that her mother Brinda and daughter Aaradhya are her inspirations.

Replying to a query posted by actor Jacky Bhagnani, Aishwarya said, “My a lady would be my mother. And believe me, even my daughter.”

She also shared her favourite moment while shooting Sarbjit in Punjab: “This wasn’t my first time in Punjab. But I got the opportunity to do seva at the Golden Temple through the film and that was my most cherished moment.”

When asked if she would like to travel through time with the help of a time machine, Aishwarya said on a philosophical note, “We are going to need a time machine at our own time, because life is going at such a fast pace. We are barely able to hold onto the moments we are living. I don’t think one needs to go anywhere but stay in touch with reality.”

Aishwarya also revealed that she binged on ‘gud paranthas’ when she was shooting for the film in Punjab.

Sarbjit, starring Aishwarya, Randeep Hooda and Richa Chaddha, is a biopic based on the life of Dalbir Kaur (played by Aishwarya). It shows her fight for the release of her brother Sarabjit (Randeep) who was imprisoned in Pakistan after being wrongly convicted for bomb blasts in the country.
