Rai made her acting debut in Mani Ratnam’s Tamil film Iruvar in 1997, a semi-biographical political drama starring Mohanlal, Prakash Raj, Tabu, and Revathi. The film was a big success, winning the Film award.
Rai’s role in the romantic drama Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam in 1999 marked a watershed moment in her career. Sanjay Leela Bhansali directed the film, which was based on Maitreyi Devi’s Bengali novel Na Hanyate and starred Salman Khan and Ajay Devgan.

Rai then co-starred in the 2005 adult drama Shabd, alongside Sanjay Dutt and Zayed Khan, about an author who convinces his wife to pursue an illicit relationship with a younger man to research his next book. The film received mostly negative reviews and was a commercial flop. She reminds me of a picture postcard you get when you were expecting a letter. It’s lovely to look at, but it’s useless because it says nothing.” That same year, Rai starred as Tilo in Paul Mayeda Berges’ romantic fantasy film The Mistress of Spices, based on Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni’s novel of the same name.
After a string of underperforming films, both critically and commercially, Rai found critical and box-office success with Ashutosh Gowariker’s period romance Jodhaa Akbar (2008). The film tells the story of a marriage of convenience between Mughal emperor Jalaluddin Muhammad Akbar (played by Hrithik Roshan) and Rajput princess Jodha Bai (played by Rai). “Aishwarya Rai is wonderfully restrained and uses her eyes expertly to communicate so much, making this one of her finest outings on screen,” said Rajeev Masand.
