As the global actress and a doting mother turns a year older, we have listed some of her best performances so far.

1. Devdas
No double thoughts on the superlative film by Sanjay Leela Bhansali. In Devdas, she pulled off the role of Paro with perfection and panache. Her role and acting will always remain etched in hearts and minds forever. How can we forget her dancing skills too that she showcased in the drama?

2. Guru
Rai played the wife of Abhishek Bachchan, Sujata, and her ferocious performance was loved by both critics and masses. She pulled off all kinds of emotions with great aplomb.

3. Raincoat
This movie is one of the underrated gems of Indian cinema. This Rituparno Ghosh directorial sees Aishwarya in a totally different avatar and she did it very perfectly. She played the role of Neeru, a woman who reconnects with her former fiance. This was another finest and bravest performance.

4. Provoked
This British film was one of her career-defining roles. She played a complex character of an abused wife who is driven to the point of killing her husband and we have to say that she had done a commendable job. Her role was completely different from what she usually did. It was unglam, raw and real.

5. ​Sarbjit
Sarbjit was a biographical drama film directed by Omung Kumar. The film featured Aishwarya Rai as Dalbir Kaur and Randeep Hooda portrayed the title role of Sarabjit Singh, an Indian man who was sentenced to death by the Supreme Court of Pakistan in 1991 and who consequently spent 22 years in prison for alleged terrorism and spying. While the movie received mixed reviews, Aishwarya was praised for her acting. One of the film critics had said, “This is easily Aishwarya’s bravest and most challenging role. There are scenes in which she impressively holds her own.” Another critic said, “The film essentially belongs to Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, as Dalbir, she has done a sincere act.”
