The "Sanjana" in Ash is back!

Remember the "Hi, I am sanjana" pepsi ad. Remember how gorgeous that model was. That was the pre-bollywood, pre-missworld Aishwarya Rai. And whatever happened next to her was all a meh, atleast in my head. Because Sushmita Sen happened. And if there's any team, I am Team Sush. I think anyone growing up in the 90s know what I am talking about. This was before there was even a Team Edward or a Team Jacob ( Aah...Kids these days ;)) . So, there was this unintentional Team Ash and Team Sush that happened. Team Ash was more about the looks and Team Sush was more about beauty with brains. And I, like any loyal team member constantly found fault in whatever Aish's next move was. From her acting skills to her we-are-just-friends crap with some of the actors to her turning into an all-out bahu of Bollywood's first family. She was an easy target. I mean, have you seen those sack-looking Anarkalis that she was seen in all the time? BUT, and it's a big BUT, let's pause and take a look at this pic.

Right? She looks stunning is an understatement. I saw this look of hers at  Cannes and I was left speechless. And it's not just the looks. It's her confidence that stands out. Maybe, those anarkalis were all part of a big plan. You know the kind of makeover you see on TV and in movies, where the lead actress, even though perfectly beautiful is dressed in sack and when the transformation happens, it's dramatic  and blows everyone away. Well played, Ash,well played! She's not hiding behind her curves but owning it. Plus, her hair and her makeup is flawless. I think this look should shut her critics  *cough* me, for a long time. Here's hoping she doesn't go hide behind those dreadful, boring anarkalis again. Safe to say that "sanjana" with that smokin attitude is back? 


  1. My my how much she had to do to please u Flo ! She would have sold those XXL anarkalis to
    Shopperstop and some so called designer boutiques. I was never team ash! But I accept one thing that there are few head turners in the world and she def is/was one. No comparisons with sush/ kokona or the likes. She is plain glamour to me

    1. It took her 20 years to impress me :p I agree with you ..She is one glamorous woman when she wants to be one!

  2. I remember that. You should have tagged that ad along with post. I am not a great fan of Ms Rai either . I am not sure whether you have seen this ad after this I thought she just gave up. From few years she has been sporting these weirdly over crowded goldern outfits of Abu jani and Sandeep khosala I was so disappointed . But I got to agree this time she got it right. she sure is looks stunning. I think its the first time in a million years (lil exaggeration !) but dont you agree. I am glad she went for Cavalli this time. Her hair and make up she looked like a million bucks. And that oozing confidence said "SUCK IT" to all the people .Loving your posts babe. Especially this one, spontaneous , witty like always .. liked your sack comment. That's was a Rofl moment for me. I kinda lost touch with all the adjectives and you know I am not very generous with compliments either but it looks like I have to brush up and polish my compliments cause your posts are demand them :) You go girrrrrrrrl!

  3. Good reference. Indeed Sanjana is back and HOW! (:
