Aishwarya Rai on Letterman November 17, 2009

Posted by Prof. RR in Uncategorized.

This is an interesting interview with Aishwarya Rai. Only subtly, but it does get at some of the cultural issues we were talking about today. She walks a fine line between identifying herself as “different” and yet not different at all. She also refers to Bride and Prejudice at the end; the clip choice from the film is rather interesting–it focuses entirely on the East-West conflict, although the film itself unfolds very differently.

I forgot to mention that curiously this clip on Youtube is called: Aishwarya Rai burns Letterman on his own show. Huh?
