Bollywood diva Aishwarya Rai Bachchan looked stunning as she graced the cover of the latest edition of Conde Nest Traveller magazine. The actress recently flew to Washington DC, along with her daughter Aaradhya, for the shoot for the cover for the special 50th anniversary edition.

The actress constantly travels with Aaradhya and in the magazine, Aishwarya shares about her experience travelling with her daughter.

“We’ve travelled with Aaradhya from the start. Abhishek and I first took her to Goa together. And when she was only four months old, I took her to Dubai on a Longines assignment. She had just about received her passport! I could see, right from the beginning, how great travel was with her—but also for her. Like us, she’s very much at ease wherever she is, whatever the atmosphere or ambience. Since she was a baby, I would talk to her all the time, describe things. She’d observe all these interactions and I could see clearly how it was influencing her,” Aishwarya said.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is currently one of the most followed Bollywood stars on Insta. But the actress took her own sweet time to join social media.

“I think it’s the patience, prodding and perseverance of my well-wishers… I mean, it’s the way of the world; I get it. The reason I stayed away for so long was that the nature of the beast is such that it becomes a business. Everyone wants numbers, they start to see it as a barometric reflection of your popularity or status,” she said.

Blown away by the cherry blossoms in Washington DC, Aishwarya compared it to Delhi saying, “I can imagine how beautiful it would look—I’ve seen the images, but now that I’ve seen the gorgeous waterfront, the monuments—I can only imagine how stunning it would be in full bloom. Washington DC is this unique mix of a buzzing urban city with an overwhelming sense of history and power. It reminds me of our own capital, New Delhi.”

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan will next be seen on big screen with husband Abhishek Bachchan in ‘Gulab Jamun’.
