Despite her stardom, she remains grounded in her personal life, with her family lovingly referring to her as "Gullu maami." Additionally, she has expressed an interest in directing films in the future.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has once shared her relaxation techniques, which include indulging in spa treatments with aromatic oils and embracing the calming properties of oils such as sandalwood, chamomile, lavender, eucalyptus, and lemongrass.
While she admits to being a non-fussy eater, she follows a healthy eating routine and avoids processed foods.
