Aishwarya puts on her dazzling smile and charm as she bowls over New Yorkers.

At the press conference, she stated, "It was when Sanjay (Leela Bhansali) narrated the script to me almost two years ago that I really heard the story for the first time.

I then made a conscious effort not to see the earlier films - I wanted to go in to this project with no mental frame of reference whatsoever.

I wanted my Paro to be Sanjay's interpretation of the character and to do that, I needed to stay free of any conceptions based on what previous actresses had done with the role."
