Aishwarya kick-started her career in modelling and became one of the renowned models of India. Besides her profession, she kept a major eye on her studies and was mostly involved in it until she decided to go for Femina Miss India in 1994. She went for it and ended up being the first runner-up. Being adjudged the first-runner-up, it broke her dream of going to Miss Universe pageant but the beauty held it on and went for Miss World Pageant.

The grand coronation night of Miss World 1994 was a big day for this diva as she was crowned by her predecessor Lisa Hanna Miss World 1993 with happiness. The moment was loaded with pride not only for her but also for the entire nation. Along with being crowned Miss World 1994, she was also awarded the Miss Photogenic title at the finale. This year, it has been twenty-five years since she won the crown.

After flourishing in pageantry, she made a move towards acting and made her acting debut in Mani Ratnam's 1997 Tamil film Iruvar and had her first Bollywood film release in ‘Aur Pyaar Ho Gaya’ opposite Bobby Deol that same year. This move of hers brought her immense appreciation and under the limelight.

Her off-screen roles include duties as a brand ambassador for several charity organisations and campaigns as she is a Goodwill Ambassador for the Joint United Nations Programme on AIDS (UNAIDS).
