"Everyone called her the most beautiful girl in college, and soon she proved to be the most beautiful girl in the world!"
These are the words of a girl named Shivani, who wrote about her experiences as a batch mate of Aishwarya Rai, on Reddit. She said that the former Miss World was a back bencher in most of the classes and was famous in the college, especially among the boys, for being extremely beautiful.
Shivani said that Aishwarya studies in the same batch as hers and that she used to travel by local train. She boarded the train at Khar station and if the two happened to be together, they would walk to the Jai Hind College together from Churchgate. She said that Aishwarya was so pretty that people would stop just to look at her with awe.
Aishwarya joined Jai Hind College after studying at KC College for one year and the boys, mesmerized by her beauty, used to stop outside the college gates just to have one look at her.
Shivani further wrote that Aishwarya would enter the class with her big group of friends and would sit at the back with them. The only exception was the Physics class because the teacher was very strict. Aishwarya was good at academics and a favourite of the teachers. The physics teachers was very appreciative of her good looks and asked her to feature in the college magazine.
Here's the full text of what Shivani wrote on Reddit:
"I studied for a year at Jaihind College, Mumbai, in the science stream. Aishwarya joined the college later, as she had initially joined KC College. Since KC College was quite close to my college, guys struck by her beauty in that college would come and stand at our college gates! She was strikingly beautiful even then. She would travel by train, and would board at Khar station. If we happened to be together, we would walk to college, which is a few minutes from Churchgate. Boys (and girls) would just stop to look at her in awe! She had a big group of friends and they would enter class at the last moment, and would always sit on the last bench. But they would sit in the first bench for the Physics lectures because we had a very strict teacher, and because Aishwarya wanted to impress the teacher! She was the apple of all the teachers' eyes, especially the Physics lecturer who was the one to encourage her to appear in the college magazines, I think. She was very down-to-earth and good at her studies. Everyone called her the most beautiful girl in college and soon, she proved to be the most beautiful girl in the world! "
