Aishwarya Rai is set to join the ranks of Hollywood immortals and pop divas like Beyoncé Knowles, Elizabeth Taylor, and Diana Ross, who have all had "celebrity Barbies" modeled after them.
Rai’s representatives were yesterday reported to be in negotiations with the toy manufacturer as it plans to transform the iconic doll into a Bollywood star and sell it throughout India.
Rai sprung to fame when she won the Miss World contest in 1994, which spawned a lucrative modeling and acting career.
If successful, the new Barbie will have Miss Rai’s striking green eyes, and wear outfits created by India’s top designers.
Everyone is trying to capitalize on the India craze! Thanks Danny Boyle!
