Every one was keen to see our own Aish walk the red carpet at Cannes Film Festival with her six-month old baby Aradhya.  Yet to see her put on weight after the delivery sent a shock wave through the news world. Though she looked stunning in her Indian outfits designed by Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla and in Elie Saab’s western wear, critics and the fans alike went viral about her having put on weight post pregnancy.

Aish tried to silence the criticism by giving an interview to NDTV where she says: “Whenever there is the wave of opinions, and I’ve always said this, it’s the truth–I’m sure you will endorse it since you know the facts as well–the haters are a drop in the ocean. There’s that much more love, you know? So any kind of negativity in any case… it just doesn’t stick, it just drops off, and it doesn’t matter at all. There’s so much love, people see the real picture, there’s so much love for this blessed experience. They’ve given me so much love throughout my career, throughout my life in the public eye, and at every phase. Like marriage, I used to joke with you, I kept saying, ‘I was married for I think the next two years after I was married,’ everywhere I was still being congratulated, I felt like a new bride,” Aishwarya Rai explained.

The actress also admitted she was delighted with the support she had received from her fans.

“And the same goes true for when I was pregnant, wherever I went. And now, the amount of love Abhishek and I and the family and Aaradhya have received, it’s blessed to be in this place, and I can only take this opportunity to say thank you to everyone for all their love and good wishes and blessings. That’s the real thing. The rest of it is opinions, and they vary and it doesn’t matter. This is reality, this is who I am. I am a mother, and this [weight gain criticism] can happen and it happened with me, and that’s fine! And that’s life! I’ve never been the one who endorsed size-0 anyways. You guys speculated I was pregnant way before I was so many times! So it just goes to show that I have lived the real life in the public eye, and that continues. There are a lot of people out there that recognize that, see that, and share that energy with me, and that’s what matters: reality,” she stressed.
