#3 Various times in India there are comments about Bollywood's top female actresses. They look too white, not sufficiently Indian.
This gal has...blue contact lenses?
They do look a little strange, but can you blue up brown eyes?
Maybe she's got a bit of the ol' Celt back in the day.
Well, don't we all.

#4 Bollywood definitely selects the fairest skinned actresses for the major parts. In fact, "fairness" of skin tone is highly desired in India.

Billions of Rupees are spent every year by dark skinned Indians on creams and lotions that claim to lighten skin tone. Some Indian women smear either rice flour or a past made of haldi (turmeric) on their skin to lighten it...to no avail.

We had a Bengali maid servant that spent about half her monthly income on Fair and Lovely skin cream.

All the bio's on the web say Aishwaryas' eyes are a natural Blue/Green, I believe it. Her eyes looked greenish when I met her, and there was no visible sign of them being contacts. Her ethnicity is quoted as being "Bunt", but I suspect that is more of a community affiliation than anything else.

She's definitely of Indo-Aryan stock though, not from the small of stature, dark little Dravidians.

I found her to be pleasant, and of good humor.

#5 Bunt? Are you kidding, I'd for sure try to put one in the seats.

#6 Not kidding. Bunt, also spelled Bant is more a community than an actual ethnicity.

India is an amazing and strange place. VERY class and status conscious. While the caste system has been outlawed, the people that cling the tightest to it are the among the members of the lowest castes.

You will see the term SC/ST & OBC. It means Scheduled Castes/Scheduled Tribes & Other Backward Classes. Essentially Affirmative Action on steroids, with all the preferences and set asides.
