She is India's most recognized and famous star in the world, along with being the face of Bollywood to the West. She was instrumental in making Bollywood go global.

Being an international beauty queen (Miss World), the youngest Indian to be waxed at Madame Tussauds (and Musee Grevin), having statues in New York, London, Blackpool, Paris. Being felicitated by France government with the second biggest award in France, the Netherlands government naming the Tulip flower in their country after her, having a place in Dubai Hall of fame, being the first and youngest Indian to be a jury member in the prestigious Cannes Film Festival, inaugurating it and having her movies screened there, being featured on the Guinness book of world records, constantly being voted in most beautiful/hottest/sexiest list polls in the world, being invited more than once to the Oprah Winfrey show, being invited to Oscars twice, being the first Indian actor to be on the cover of TIME magazine, also only Indian actor to be listed under TIME magazine's 100 most influential people in the world, being the global envoy of the United Nations, being the international FACE of the biggest brands like L'Oreal, Longines, Lux - there are too many reasons. She has done our nation proud enough number of times.

It's not about "Other actresses not giving a damn about Hollywood." Had they landed a decent film they would have ran to the West long back.. but Aishwarya wasn't like that. Despite a successful entry into Hollywood through Bride and Prejudice, she still didn't move to LA. She remained in India giving preference to Indian cinema - even if the biggest of Hollywood stars like Will Smith were running after her to make movies with them. Till date you see Hollywood icons mentioning Aishwarya in high regard.

Forbes magazine called her the most bankable Indian star in Hollywood - ahead of Khans and other Indian male actors. Despite being a female in a male dominated industry, despite being boycotted by the biggest stars in her home country, she actually went to on to become a bigger name than them all. So yes, she is an international icon no matter how much her detractors try to pull her down.

P.S. "karan johar, raju hirani, yash chopra, sooraj barjatya  and the likes never worked with her" - That's FALSE. All of those filmmakers approached her for her films. KJo for KKHH, Hirani for Munnabhai MBBS, Yash Chopra actually screentested her successfully even before she won Miss World and even approached her for DTPH and Veer Zaara, Sooraj Barjatya offered her HSSH. It's an entirely different thing that she chose not to work with them. And given that other than Hirani, none of them are great directors, she didn't have much to lose.

When was I trying to prove something? Confused You said certain directors didn't work with her and I said they offered her movies and there is proof for the same, for example Yash Chopra speaking in video, no PR VR.

I said India's, no wonder you had to remove the word to make it sound "funny." Oh well, as I said her detractors can continue pulling her down as they have been doing for the past 20 years, she will remain undeterred.

P.S. You can't even spell her name right, how did I think you'll even get other her facts right. Silly of me. Silly

Aishwarya is no international icon. To be an international icon one should be known to the ordinary man on the street by people of many countries who have no South Asian roots. Ash's so called international fame was a PR generated ruse to show that she was busy with something bigger than Bollywood when she was boycotted in Bollywood for her unprofessionalism. Many such out of work 'stars' used this tactic in the mid-2000s to cover up the lack of work.
As for going to Cannes, modelling for international brands etc...she represented India there and not the world as whole. She was a local brand ambassdor who was taken to an international platform. If there is a truly international icon from India related to the film industry it is Freida Pinto.
