As the Barbie doll completes its 50th year, Mattel Toys has decided to launch a Barbie doll based on the looks of beautiful Aishwarya Bachchan. The actress is said to have been approached by the makers, a couple of months back. But Aishwarya wanted to be sure about the entire look of the doll.
“Aishwarya is quite happy and thrilled that she had been approached for this honour. But she is very particular about her image and therefore didn"t want the doll to look anything that she wasn"t comfortable with," reveals our source.
Further the source also adds that the early reports of the doll have been good and so Mattel Toys is now planning to speed up production and distribute the dolls within India and internationally in countries like United Kingdom and Dubai where Bollywood has a strong fan following, especially Aishwarya Bachchan"s fans.
About Aishwarya's look our source said, " Aishwarya's Barbie will be very close to the real life superstar and will come complete with Aishwarya"s green eyes and her designer outfits. In fact leading designers have been approached to create both Indian and Western outfits to go with the Aishwarya Barbie.
With the Aishwarya Barbie Doll all set to hit our shops, the actress will join the ranks of Hollywood divas like Beyonce Knowles, Elizabeth Taylor and Diana Ross, who have all had their own limited edition celebrity Barbies.
