During the question and answer round, Aishwarya was asked the question, “If you have to look for qualities in a husband, would you look for the qualities in Ridge Forrester from ‘The Bold & Beautiful’ or in Mason Capwell from ‘Santa Barbara’?” Aishwarya’s answer was, “Mason. They do have a lot in common, but from what we see, Mason has a very caring side to him, and a terrific sense of humour. And that really gels with my character.” Also Read - Sushmita Sen Gives 'Circle of Life' a Smoking Hot Twist And THIS Picture is Proof!

The question which was asked to Sushmita was: “What do you know about the textile heritage of your country? How old has it been and what do you prefer to wear personally?” Sush answered, “I think it all started with Mahatma Gandhi’s khadi. It has gone a long way since then, but the basics of Indian textile heritage has been from there.”

In current times, both Sushmita and Aishwarya are two of the most popular Bollywood actresses who have millions of fans from across the globe.
