After Pharrell Williams and Ranveer Singh rang in the Holi celebrations earlier this year in the country, the colourful and crazy pictures of which continue to do the rounds on social media even today, the American rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer, and film producer is back with Bollywood diva and former Miss World, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan on the cover of Vogue magazine for the month of April. To say that they looked absolutely sensational together, sharing space on the cover, won’t be an understatement.
About the photoshoot, a source close to the development told Pinkvilla, “This one was a special one for Aishwarya Rai Bachchan as she met Pharrell for the first time. They got along like a house on fire and kept talking through the shoot.He asked her about Bollywood movies, food and music as she shared some of her Hollywood experiences with him. Pharrell has come down to India to launch his new clothing line which is inspired by Holi, the festival of colours, so Aishwarya asked him about it too.” In a behind-the-scenes video, Aishwarya and Pharrell talk about parenting, what they find in their fridge, whilst posing together for the photoshoot.

During the same interview, Pharrell is seen as saying, “I’m no role model. I’m just an advisor – that’s why as a producer I’m able to push people in certain directions to find a uniqueness in their voice, their intentions and their purpose – that’s my job.” On the other hand, Aishwarya spoke at great length about being a working mother, “When I got married, it was interesting to discover that everything was continuing as it were – script discussions and business meetings. I wanted to keep it going because it meant there was a change in our otherwise-conservative industry. Likewise, with motherhood, I worked from the beginning but it was on endorsements, charity work and business ideas.”
