Aishwarya Rai: Were Her New Ads PhotoShopped or Did She Lose the Baby Weight? (Photos)

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan‘s post baby body has been a worldwide topic of discussion. After the birth of her daughter last November there has been criticism that she did not loss the post baby weight quick enough. But apparently this is something that a little PhotoShop magic can’t fix. In a new ad campaign for Kalyan jewelers she appears much slimmer, something that is stirring up controversy.

One Indian news source stated, “It’s quite surprising that she has got back to her lean self within a matter of two months’ after she was last pictured with a fuller post-pregnancy figure.”

They added:

“We can’t figure out if she’s really lost weight or if the pictures are heavily Photoshopped. The ad has been shot aesthetically, which gives an impression that Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is floating in golden-hued water. The actress was last spotted with baby Aaradhya in June this year, and it’s quite surprising that she has got back to her lean self within a matter of two months, or as we said before – the images might be a result of heavy editing.”

The ad’s photographer Kiran Deohans addressed the controversy, “Coming back post-delivery after months and shooting for this commercial, Aishwarya is still the same. She is a true professional and has the same passion for work. As the director of photography, I felt she is the most beautiful woman I ever worked with. She always had that sparkling glow on her face earlier and even after pregnancy.”
