It happened so during the rapid-fire segment of the show. When Karan asked Aishwarya, “If you were pinned down and had to market yourself, what would be your best advertising line?” The actor said, “I'm totally worth it.” Karan also asked her, “Can you pass a mirror without looking into it?”
Aishwarya told him sarcastically, “Yeah, why upset the mirror?” “If you had a party who would not make it to the list?” further probed Karan. She chuckled, “I'd meet them at your party.” Aishwarya was also asked to pick between Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Mani Ratnam, the two directors with whom she has delivered hits. She was also asked about Filmfare and the Cannes Film Festival, to which the actor said, “I do make it to both. I get majorly applauded at one.”
