I certainly don't see the need to classify Miss Rai into the North Indian or South Indian groups. The point is that SHE IS INDIAN, the direction doesn't matter. She represents INDIA, not specifically North, South, East nor West part of India. Doing a lot of research and posting here, just to categorize Miss Rai is very nonsensical! It seems like another attempt to "CLAIM" Miss Rai, which is impossible. "We will be judged by our own actions and not our appearance"

On South Indians Brahmins
( Chanakya Was a South Indian Brahmin )
Chanakya
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chanakya
Chanakya was most probably born in Magadha (ruled by the Nandas) as the son of acharya Chanak. A south Indian group of Brahmins, Chozhiyas, claim that Chanakya was one of them. Though this may sound very improbable considering the vast distance between present day Tamilnadu in the south and Magadha in Bihar, it finds curious echos in Parishista-parvan, where Hemachandra claims that Chankya was a Dramila. Dramila, being a very common varaint of Dravida.

South Indians Brahmins can be very very fair in complexion , & their women can be very very attractive .So is true of Keralites ( many keralites are known to be very fair & attractive ).But they are also known to be very , very brilliant ,innovative & Brainy people .Fairness is just another plus point for them.

There is nothing to suggest that they are related to the North Indians.

Obviously , “Aryan Invasion is most propably a Farce”.

Coming back to Aishwarya Rai, I studied in a South Indian School , where I came across a Shetty Boy ( for the first time in my life ) , he was red eyed , relatively good looking. But he had a sister , who was very , very very attractive .

Bunts are a Kshatriya Community of South India , relatively affluent , people from their community are known to be BEAUTIFUL. Aishwarya Rai hails from the same community , so it's no surprise.

To underestand this further , that there was no such so Called "Aryan" Invasion of India , who brought Hinduism (Vedas ) into this country , most Hindu mythological heroes were Dark in complexion , which goes on to show that they were indigenous to this country .Example : foremost warrior ( & hindu God ) of his time , Lord Krishna was Dark in complexion , Draupadi ( considered to be a BEAUTY in her times ) was dark in complexion , so was the great Brahmin Sage , Veda Vyasa ( real name : Krishna Dwaipayana ) was dark in complexion. So was Arjuna the great Pandava . This goes on to show , that many hindu mythological heroes were dark in complexion , thus being original inhabitants of this great Punya Bhumi.

On the contrary almost all north indians are DEFINITELY decendents of infinite waves of immigrants ( TURKS , GREEKS , ARABS , MONGOLS , UZBEKS , IRANIANS , PATHANS , KHAZAKS) who have since THOUSANDS OF YEARS settled across North India , coming into this country along with almost infinite number of invasions that have taken place during centuries. Some of these immigrants came with the voilence of sword , others peacefully (Parsis ).Since almost all of them were fair in complexion , most north indians are fair in complexion. These people ( Invadors , or simply peaceful immigrants ) assimilated into the local hindu culture , married local women ( or even raped some of them ) & thus their decendants over hundereds or thousands of years , lost original identity.

Aishwarya Rai’s Ethnicity
Aishwarya Rai is a SOUTH INDIAN , in blood & ethnicity.

Problem is that many north Indians still love to believe that all south Indians are propably black in complexion.

Reality for many north Indians is that they believe they are ARYANS ( decendents of noble nomadic tribe that invaded India 5000 or 10000 years ago ).This also goes with the belief that aryans are related to Germans ( europeans ). So North indians are really Germanic in Blood.

First of all , Aryan theory is just a theory ,propogated by the British .It obviously is a farce.It is literally impossible for some so called Germanic Tribe to invade a country situated so vast distances aways from europe , at a time when transport BIG DEAL. India is an estimated 8000 -10000 kms away from Germany.No such invasion is recorded in Puranas or in any other Indian mythological books.

Aishwarya is a south indian and it is very obvious from her looks. She has said in many of her interviews that she speaks tulu and kannada, and that is her mother-tongue. Rai is not an Aryan name.I think People here are mistaking Rai with Roy. But no matter what, this lady is way too beautiful and glamorous

I doubt you're gonna get that - but try a sanskrit site - you can type in a name and they'll rewrite it in sanskrit.

O dear - we're still talking about castes are we? I personally think the caste system is the most evil thing to have hit india in its entire history - a system that was brought with the settling aryans to proclaim their dominance because of their fairer skin over the indigenous (aboriginal) darker skinned Dravidian population in india - it is no wonder Aishwarya doesn't go around calling herself a brahmin - respect to her for that - I certainly wouldn't feel proud to call myself a brahmin - hehe

feel free to now go crazy, disagree and reply to my post - but i'm not gonna care - the meaningless racist caste system should be abolished in India - and Aishwarya is with me on that one.

Her ancestors are not just aryan - because her mother tongue is of the dravidian language groups. But yes, Rai is an aryan name - her first name Aishwarya can be found in Paali, Tamil, and other dravidian languages as well as sanskrit. In sanskrit it means prosperity - but it also means "beautiful" in other languages - imagine that huh?

Her Rai origin is aryan. There are many rais surename is north india, punjab, pakistan and even persia. Rayyas used to rule vijayanagar empire. So her descendent are aryans.However , they later amalgamated to the dravidian bunt culture.

Btw tulu is a beautiful dravidian language predominantly spoken in mangalore, and is a sister language of kannada, and other south indian languages such as tamil. Aishwarya is known to be fluent in kannada, probably for this reason.

She is not bengali. Aishwarya is from the bunt community, a south indian community, her native tongue tulu, having been born in mangalore, karnartaka. In interviews she prefers to stress she's actually from bombay, where she moved, and grew up from an early age. She shares her ethinicity with shilpa shetty among other bollywood thespians. U're right in saying she's hindu indian, however.
Might i add i really like her, and she's usually very down to earth in interviews! She's cool. I wish her well.
