Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is a woman of substance and there is surely no doubt about it. Recently a survey conducted by a popular research agency, Hansa Research revealed that Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is the most powerful female actor racing ahead of the likes of Priyanka Chopra, Katrina Kaif and even Madhuri Dixit.
This was the first ever extensive research conducted to measure Celebrity Power in India; concentrating on different attributes like popularity, media presence, power of persuasion and image.
The all-India research revealed that Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is amongst the most persuasive and likeable celebrities in India. She has also garnered over 98.8 per cent of recognition as well as recall value, which is at par with cinematic legends like Amitabh Bachchan and cricketing star Sachin Tendulkar.
Incidentally, Aishwarya is the only female who is part of the top 10 recognised celebrities from all walks of life.
The survey also divulged that Aishwarya is one of the most popular faces among classes as well as the masses. In an otherwise male dominated society, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has clearly emerged as the woman on top!
