Some may remember actor Sneha Ullal from her Bollywood debut film, Lucky: No Time For Love who starred opposite Salman Khan. However, there are millions who remember the actor for her uncanny resemblance to beauty queen and superstar Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. When she entered the showbiz world, Sneha's sharp features did remind fans of Aishwarya, right from her light-green eyes to her smile and hair. Well, once again, fans were seen comparing her looks to that of Aishwarya. Ullal recently took to her Instagram account to share some bridal photoshoot pictures and as expected, fans couldn’t stop themselves from drawing comparisons with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.
In the monochrome picture, we see Sneha candidly posing in a bridal avatar. Comments like “Aishwarya rai Xerox”, "Aishwarya Rai..lg rhe h ap..” and
“Look like ashwariya” can be seen under her post. Speaking of these comparisons, earlier, in an interview, years after making her debut, Sneha Ullal spoke about audiences comparing her looks to that of the Jodhaa Akbar actor and stated that she is comfortable in her own skin, but projecting her as a lookalike of Aishwarya was a PR Strategy.
“I am so comfortable in my own skin and all those comparisons didn’t bother me. Also, that was also their PR strategy on how to describe me. That thing actually emphasised the entire comparison. Otherwise, it may not have been such a big deal,” she said to IANS.
Though she may not have a flourishing career like Mrs Bachchan, she made a comeback in acting by making her digital debut with a thriller called Expiry Date that was released in October on Zee5.
