Kashmir people from Northern India have light eyes.

lelo4 July 21, 2016 at 10:39 am

1% of Northern Indians look like her.

ashash October 1, 2015 at 12:56 am

Beautiful Indian woman.

Wolfman March 7, 2016 at 10:50 am

She’s very beautiful indeed! Her caste claim descent from the Iranian Scythians who settled in Southern India and Britain as soldiers in the Roman army and included in the King Arthur myth. Plus, we know blue eyes originate from Ukraine where the Scythians came from to settle in India.

abbracci August 23, 2015 at 7:11 pm

What a beautiful Indian goddess. She looks mixed with Persian not European.

Wolfman August 30, 2015 at 12:49 am

Yes! I agree with you abbracci plus her caste the Bunts are said to be partially descended from the Indo-Scythians that settled in India like me.

i was living with my parents in india in the early 90s for a while

and we were living in NEW DELHI

99,9999 percent of the people were dark but there had been also a few with blue or green eyes

And please don’t make me laugh with the theory IN THE NORTH more blue eyed and in the south more dark eyed

thats totally false

There had been portugese settlers hundreds of years ago and i bet that the indians got their eyes from them

But it is also realistic that there had been admixture via british settlers, although they had been hated by the indians
but who knows

What hurts me is watching bollywood movies today.– A lot of blue eyed indians what is not so realistic and rather racist

but like in mexico the telenovela actors with blue or green eyes are favored its the same in india

people like exotic people and having pale skin and light eyes is exotic in those countries :-))

sarahle September 6, 2015 at 10:01 pm

not only mixed with portuguese people, with british people, too.

J420 October 1, 2015 at 8:27 pm

Well technically Indians are biologically Caucasian anyway. Skin colour doesn’t define race, bone structure does.

Tyler November 15, 2015 at 12:00 am

How is it racist to find blue eyes attractive? In Korea people prefer pale skin and bigger eyes despite the fact most people have small eyes and use skin whitening creams. In India they prefer colored eyes, so what? It’s simply a different standard of beauty. In america we consider the all american woman to be blonde, tan, big boobed with a slim waist but how many natural blondes do we really got and how many women are naturally tanned? Most people bake in the sun to get that look. Every country has their standard of beauty. Damn it’s like appreciating white beauty has become racist. Unbelievable.

sparkles180 August 8, 2015 at 2:31 pm

She’s pretty but she doesn’t look full indian. I thought she was half white or a mixed latina girl.

cwm85 August 8, 2015 at 2:54 pm

There are many looks of Indians. Read a book

neiltennant July 26, 2015 at 11:17 am

she got her beauty and her green/blue eyes from her portugese roots

portugese settlers were in india and they mixed up with indians

xoxo August 6, 2015 at 6:26 am

What a racist comment. So you’re saying she’s only beautiful because of her distant white blood?

neiltennant August 6, 2015 at 6:46 am

again not no no no

its not as easy to say WHITES= Beautifil BLACKS = not so much

thats not true

but i said her blue or green eyes which are very special and the thing people talk about so much are from portugese settlers

cwm85 July 20, 2015 at 2:40 pm

She’s beautiful.

GypsyQueen July 19, 2015 at 2:52 pm

Aishwarya is stunning and gorgeous! She’s beautiful because she’s Indian..duh. Freida Pinto is a beautiful Indian too. Not all beautiful people have European in them. Some Europeans can be ugly.

neiltennant July 15, 2015 at 3:38 am

she is beautiful

and of course indians can have green or blue eyes !!!!!!!!
I was in india and i know lot of indians with blue eyes.

For example an older man who ran a burger king restaurant. He’ is very dark but has blue eyes

There are a lot of theories about this

1. In ancient india without migration etc. blue or green eyes weren’t possible. Those light eyes were only in northern europe

2. There is a anomaly that even people in india can have light eyes. But only maybe 1 in 100 million people can have this

3. INDIANS with light eyes were the result of european invaders

3.1 for example portugese invaders. lot of Portugese people have light eyes

3.2 this is a result of the invader Alexander the great who was of greek descent (now the yugsolawian and albania area)

3. But also by english invaders the result- Mixed offspring

California July 12, 2015 at 12:21 am

I don’t know why people say Angelina Jolie is the most beautiful woman. Aishwarya is far more beautiful.

ilovecherlloyd July 9, 2015 at 6:50 am

She’s beautiful and amazing! Her and Freida Pinto are gorgeous. Indians are the best.

visokozen June 28, 2015 at 8:20 am

Really? I didn’t know that Indians can have blue/green eyes without being fertilized by an Englishmen.

margot June 30, 2015 at 9:13 am

European people are not the owners of light eyes..You can find blue eyed or green eyed Indians who are 100% Indians..I don’t think she is mixed..The Indian population is huge they don’t all look the same..

mermaid_ June 4, 2015 at 1:09 am

She looks Indian. White girls don’t look like that. Indian women are beautiful.

thomas1987 June 4, 2015 at 4:11 am

I’ve seen white women that look her, but indians are caucasian also.So i don’t know people are surprised by her look, Europeans and indians are both Caucasian.

melodyla June 4, 2015 at 1:05 am

Why do people think every beautiful person looks white? She looks like a Indian woman. She’s pure Indian. Indians and Pakistanis can have light eyes and light skin.

this woman couldn’t pass for european in any way shape or form, you stick her in any european country and people will notice her as a foreigner from a long shot, watch the pink panther 2, despite her having her light eyes she still has a very noticeable indian phenotype, she’s very overrated for the fact that she has those eyes, in my opinion she looks perfectly indian and i don’t think her facial structure is pleasing to look at

ashash August 15, 2014 at 1:26 pm

I think she’s absolutely stunning, but you’re right. She does look Indian. I wouldn’t mistake her for anything else.

Your Mom August 5, 2014 at 11:36 pm

She Could Pass For Half Indian And Half White. I’ve Seen Women Who Were Of That Mix, And They Look Similar To Her. She Doesn’t Look 100% White Though.

ShawntheGod July 27, 2014 at 3:54 am

She don’t look Indian, she looks white and Indians worship white looking Indians like her.

Look at Bollywood actors, they look like darker white people.

I thought Frieda pinto doesn’t look Indian?
so how does an Indian supposed to look like. Indian aren’t black(niggro)
If you dont have proper geographic knowledge about Indian stop spouting B.S..
She look like Iranian.. not white.

Bubblegum Bitch November 18, 2014 at 1:10 pm

Compared to your average Indian, her features are very Eurocentric. I wouldn’t say she looks white, but she certainly doesn’t represent how the majority of Indians look. I don’t agree with you saying she looks Iranian either. To me, she just looks like your average light skinned Indian, who are in the minority in India, yet seem to make up +95% of all the Indian public figures, particularly celebrities.

shobohunter November 18, 2014 at 7:06 pm

Reply to
@Bubblegum Bitch

If her features are very “eurocentric” how can you say that she doesn’t look white. Because eurocentric feature are synonymous with looking white. Isn’t it.
You’re contradicting yourself.

European features are more than skin color.
This is the perfect example of eurocentric feature in bollywood.
en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nargis_Fakhri

You said
(but she certainly doesn’t represent how the majority of Indians look.)

Not indian enough?
So how can Indian supposed to look like. What is typical for you an Indian?
Apu Nahasapeemapetilon from the Simpson show LoL..
People who says that’s sort of things are racist themselves..
(ex. Japanese cartoon character looks white.)

You said
“she looks average light skinned Indian”
average people are not in minority.

Indian looks and appearances changes according to geographical location.
Indian sub-continent is a big junk of land and
its shears borders with China Afghanistan..
Your light skinned Indian are majority in north of India. If you ever had visited i.e. Kashmir Himalayas Himachal. People are white as snow.

North India doesn’t look like south Indian.

Your average Indian from North east is not an Tamil in appearances but rather look-like Chinese.
Example
This is a Indian athletes from North east.
en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mary_Kom

Doesn’t look Indian enough to you is probably because
She doesn’t represent the caricatured Hollywood phenotype of Indian character. That you often see.
I can’t imagine she plying an Indian character in any Hollywood movie.. Pissed me off when American says she doesn’t look Indian Because Americans Actually Know Nothing About
India

QWERTY August 7, 2015 at 9:07 pm

@shobohunter I always see you making racist remarks about every ethnicity. grow up. second, how tf does aishwarya rai look iranian…? she is beautiful but you clearly have never seen an iranian before and you should shut your ignorant mouth. most people from iran are very very lighter than aishwarya and other indians. also iranian is a nationality not a ethnicity. you’re a damn idiot.

she look like princes Jasmine from alladin..
why so many white and black people claiming her.
and sayin she doesn’t look Indian.

sararuiz May 6, 2014 at 3:53 pm

If it wasn’t for her eyes, she wouldn’t be considered “the most beautiful woman”. Personally, I think she kinda resembles a pigeon and there are far more pretty Indian girls with brown eyes that I believe are prettier, like Frieda Pinto. I guess since not that many Indian people have her eyes, they put her on a pedestal

shobohunter May 28, 2014 at 4:09 am

her eye shape (not just color) is resemble Hindu goddesses..
that why she considered beautiful . there are many Indian with that color eyes.
kareena kapoor kareshma kapoor.

u retards needs to understand that having color eyes is not very uncommon. in india

Marseille April 24, 2014 at 5:53 am

Maybe an atypical Greek, she does look like some Southern Europeans.

J.J. May 5, 2014 at 1:04 am

I find it odd how people specify that she doesn’t look indian when realistically she does, look at her eye shape, her nose, her lips, her jaw, if she didn’t have those light eyes you wouldn’t even debate the topic, I will accept she could pass for maybe Pakistani or an Iranian-indian mix but she still looks south/central Asian, she hardly looks any type of European, even west Asian is pushing it. priyanka chopra looks less indian than her yet has darker hair, eyes and skin and I don’t hear people saying she doesn’t look indian. people put this woman on a pedestal just because of her eyes, people say she’s so beautiful and she doesn’t look indian, take those eyes off her she would be virtually nothing in the fame industry and no one would care or say that she’s so attractive. personally I don’t find her attractive at all her symmetry and facial features aren’t pleasing to look it and are out of proportion/undefined, I will admit she has very pretty eyes and she’s very lucky to have them but that’s all she’s got and that’s all she’s really known for; “the indian woman with the light eyes”, and I’m not just being bias saying she’s unattractive because she’s indian even though in general I will admit I don’t see Indians as a very attractive ethnicity I do think people like priyanka chopra are attractive and I had a friend of full Bangladeshi descent who I thought was attractive. but to summarise; this woman’s so over rated!

notracist January 30, 2014 at 1:12 am

This is just another good example that shows how ignorant and racist Americans are about the concept of “race.” Indians are mostly Aryans and Dravidians. Aryans invaded India made the Indian caste system to prevent racial mixing with the natives. And those Aryans were ancient white people. That’s why a lot of Indians have Caucasian features. You Americans are just so unbelievably stupid about race. Especially you, scott :) Blame your society for you stupidity. Pity.

MCantu February 15, 2014 at 8:55 pm

I agree 100%

scott February 23, 2014 at 7:47 am

ohhh so you accept Nazi theories then? Aryan is a nazi theory not real science. and nazis say ayrans have blonde hair and blue eyes… which is the opposite of Indians…. who are some of the darkest people on planet earth. A lot of Indians are as dark as Africans so definitely not “aryan”

All this talk about her true eye colour and Indians having the inability to have lighter coloured eyes is so ridiculous!

J.J. January 14, 2014 at 1:34 am

most of those pictures are blurry, the one of her from the side her eyes are light and the ones where her eyes look obviously brown look like brown contacts

Alice January 14, 2014 at 2:57 am

I agree with you J.J. on this one. Aishwarya does in fact have the eye colour of the picture above green grey. It is well know that the picture of her with brown eyes is from a movie called Jodha Akbar where she wore brown contacts. The vast majority of Indian people have brown eyes but she is of the minority of Indians with a lighter eye colour.

She won Miss World and at that time participants weren’t allowed to wear contacts and she had the green grey eye colour. Anyway contacts would have been very obvious then because they weren’t as good as they are now.

scott January 18, 2014 at 8:03 pm

dont be ridiculous an Indian would never wear Brown contacts, the brown is her natural eye colour. She had brown eyes when she was younger and her INDIAN parents have brown eyes. It’s basically impossible for her eyes to be light.

Theres a higher chance of a black kid having light eyes

http://lollitop.magicgate.eu/media/LollitopMagicgate_012/lollitop_02_848534_black_baby_with_blue_eyes_2.jpg

Alice January 18, 2014 at 11:24 pm

She did for that particular role. Not talking specifically about Indians here but people often wear contacts to fit in better with the role they are playing. Charlize Theron wore brown contacts for her role in Monster and Cillian Murphy wore brown contacts for Peacock. Just because both your parents are brown eyed doesn’t mean you can’t be blue eyed. Blue eyes are recessive so it happens a lot that brown eyed people can have a blue eyed child. Black children that have lighter coloured eyes have some European ancestry. Fully Indian people though can have lighter eyes. Look up the Punjabi people or Sikhs in Indian and see how some of them have lighter eyes.

J.J. January 19, 2014 at 12:15 am

exactly alice, Indians can have light eyes (even though it may be very rare) without a European ancestor because they carry the white gene and have traits of the white race some would even class them as Caucasian, whereas when is comes to black people some sort of Caucasian ancestor would have to exist in both parents for a light eyed gene to be activated. It’s really pathetic that people can’t accept that an indian could have naturally light eyes

scott January 19, 2014 at 12:52 am

Indians do not carry the “white gene” (what even is that?) Im guessing youre Indian since you think that? Just like you said about the black kid Aishwarya will need to have some caucasian ancestors if her eyes really are that colour. Unless it’s a different mutation that gives her light eyes? (possible)

and no that black kid is African so he doesnt have recent white ancestors.

oh and this is what the vast majority Indians look like. they definitely do not “carry the white gene” that black kid is more likely to carry “the white gene”

Not all East Indians look as dark as them, scott. And I wouldn’t consider them the vast majority either.

Alice January 19, 2014 at 1:36 am

The black child you posted is an African-American so he would have European ancestry. My post is awaiting moderation but I agree that it isn’t a “white” gene but a recessive gene. I’ve explained a bit more in my post that isn’t showing yet.

scott January 19, 2014 at 3:13 am

those are the majority. If you ever watch documentaries about India thats what most people look like. Indians are often as dark as Africans (or Australoids – same race as Indians)

Alice January 19, 2014 at 6:24 am

Yes the majority of Indians are dark but there are a minority that are quite a bit lighter especially in the Northern provinces. I know a lot of Bollywood actresses wear contact lenses but I don’t know why there is such controversy about Aishwarya’s eye colour. Contact lenses are quite easy to pick. Look at Paris Hilton’s eyes up close and you will see that Aishwarya’s eyes are natural.

Alice January 19, 2014 at 1:13 am

Indians have the same mutation as Europeans because the gene spread in some Middle Eastern populations and then to the subcontinent. Have you looked at Afghan people and Pakistani people. There are quite a few of them with light eyes. What about that famous picture in National Geographic of the Afghan girl with green eyes.
http://img.labnol.org/images/2007/06/green-eye-afghan-girl-national-geographic.jpg
Here’s a girl from Nepal
http://www.thelongestwayhome.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2012/07/Green-eyed-Nepalese-Girl_resize.jpg
Here is a blog with quite a few pictures of light eyed people from Napal, Afghanistan, Pakistan and India.

Yes I agree it is not a “white” gene. They are just recessive genes that some populations have. Europeans of course have the higher amounts of blue eyes, green eyes etc but the continent of Eurasia is joined together so of course there is gene flow. Also Europe was populated originally by people coming from the East.

when I say the white gene I am referring to very distant Caucasian ancestors (not European), people that were blonde hair and blue eyed in their ancestral gene pool, same way Persians & arabs have blonde haired blue eyed ancestors as they’re considered Caucasian

candace_alyssa October 14, 2015 at 1:45 am

Scott are you crazy. I know and live among many people of Indian decent. Although the majority have brown eyes some have green eyes, some have grey eyes and their skin tones vary from milky white to black. The Indian people are classied Into three groups, the Dravidians, the negroids and the Aryans. The different groups have highly varying features. i can clearly tell that your perception of Indian people stems from what you have read and not from actually intermingling with them.

Shawn January 10, 2014 at 9:48 am

She looks fully white.

AK January 11, 2014 at 6:17 pm

If she looks anything other than Indian, than it would be Middle Eastern, or even Mestiza Latina like Eva Longoria. Not sure why people always jump to ‘white;’ perhaps they’re thrown off by the blue eyes, even though, while they are most common amongst Europeans, they are not exclusive to them.

Most Middle Eastern people (with the exception of Gulf Arabs) are actually even ‘whiter’ looking than her (minus the blue eyes, even though they can have them too,) such as Persians, Levantine Arabs, Turks…

The only thing that would keep me from thinking she’s Middle Eastern or Latina are her features (especially her nose,) that are common in many South Indian women.

Sure, she could pass for white, (and when I say white, I mean one of those white people mixed with Gypsy,) but, personally, looking at her, the first thing that would pop into my head would not be white.

J.J. December 31, 2013 at 9:31 pm

correction; her hair and eye colour should not be listed considering too many people cannot believe that her eyes are the grey/green colour that they are, regardless of the fact they look 100% real, if they’re contacts they’re the best contacts I’ve ever seen

Alice January 1, 2014 at 10:17 am

It’s ridiculous isn’t it? They are definitely her natural eyes and they are grey green.

Yusra December 31, 2013 at 10:01 am

correction; to J.J. Although I do appreciate your analysis on the similarities to the Indian and white race’s facial structure , lets not forget many bollyqood actresses have gone through cosmetic surgery and wear heavy makeup.

Yusra December 31, 2013 at 9:58 am

correction; Aishwarya has natural brown eyes . She just wears contacts. If you look her up in one of the first Bollywood films she starred in you will notice she has light brown eyes. This was a strategy to get her to stand out in the Bollywood industry. It is also her trade mark ; As for the European ancestry blood lines J.J. was talking about, this may not necessarily be true because Europeans / the British did not settle in until after WW1. They had invaded India (including Pakistan and Bangladesh ). There is a VERY slight possibility that she does have European ancestors , also considering she is from south India.

J.J. December 30, 2013 at 6:28 pm

correction; Indians carry the white gene which is why some have aquiline noses, narrow faces etc, it is also a theory that white people started in northern india (Indo-Aryan) which is what hitler believed not to mention European languages can be traced back to northern india that is why the language tree is referred to as Indo-European. But lets not forget india is next to Pakistan & Persia and Persians do come under the ‘caucasian’ category, while light eyes may not be common in the Persian region they can be still be found. and all that being said india was invaded by numerous European explorers like the English and the Portuguese. So it is possible by a slim chance that an Indian can have naturally light eyes and her eyes look perfectly natural. All this nonsense of her eyes being contacts and her having brown eyes as a child is just scepticism, there is absolutely no hard evidence, so while certain people may be headstrong enough to believe her eyes are brown and it’s impossible for an indian to have light eyes, it is not a fact, as it stands her eyes are always grey/green in her movies and photos and it is one of her trademarks, so until it actually becomes a known fact that her eyes are brown and she wears contacts this website should not listen to corrections by very ignorant, sceptical people. as it stands her eyes are grey/green full stop

And a lot of South Indians , Bengalis, Sri Lankans , etc do bleech there skin but , no One in the north does , because most of them are not dark at all they have no need to .

Kayla December 27, 2013 at 12:41 am

first off shes South Indian , which means she has no white in her .. The only indians that do are that are in very north of India because there Aryan like Persians, afghans etc who came from Europe and settled in the Middle East and so on . Those people in India arent really indian they just lived there and didnt make there own country Kashmiris , punjabis . Aish is drav , which is why people think she has contacts , because it’s really rare for those Souths to have it. But for those in the north it’s really common

xforeverlove21 April 26, 2014 at 6:00 pm

Actually there are a lot of North Indians I know who bleach their skin, so obsessed that a lot of these North Indian (Punjabi) stores carry bleaches and Fair and lovely. You guys are no where near looking like a white person, not even one bit. Also white girls don’t grow mustaches/ beards.

Look at these pictures from her childhood.

http://amazingezone.com/img/2011/Nov/aishwarya/Miss-World-Aishwarya-Rai-Childhood-Photos-08.jpg

CLEARLY her eyes are green! All those other photos are all edited. She was born with light skin and does not bleach it! See there is a photo of her less than one year old! In fact in this picture on her profile she has a spray tan. Why is everyone so jealous of her and keep saying she bleaches her skin and wears contacts? Do you have anything else better to do with your lives? She was born like this and is beautiful. It’s a fact. Get over it.
Plus she’s from mangalore! They are known for beautiful women and eyes!

Alice December 27, 2013 at 12:33 am

It’s only because people don’t bother to do some research. India is a huge country and the people range from light skinned to black. There are people like Aishwarya and people like Andamanese Islanders. There over over a billion people in India.

J.J. December 26, 2013 at 6:08 pm

correction; this is absolute nonsense, her eyes are light and always have been, they’re most definitely not brown. People have been making the same assumptions about beyonces hazel eyes, Rihanna’s green eyes, tyra banks green eyes etc. Just because these people don’t fit your criteria of a ‘white’ person does not mean they cannot possess light eyes just by that slim chance, a recessive feature means it is rare/unlikely, not impossible. That picture provided of her eyes being ‘brown’ look like hazel contacts if you ask me and don’t look natural at all. Her eye colour does look quite natural as they aren’t a ‘solid’ colour nor are they too bright or unrealistic, take a look for yourself;

http://img.wallbeam.com/16processed/0e974Aishwarya%20Rai%20Bachchan%20closeup%20Wallpapers.jpg

Her eyes look very natural being the grey/green colour that they are and never change, they even have a slight bit of brown around the pupil similar to Rihanna’s eyes, if they were wearing light eyed contacts they would not have the brown specks. But in the end there is absolutely no fact behind her wearing contacts so I fail to see why this website should list (possibly brown) when it’s all rumours from people who are too ignorant to believe an indian could have light eyes, even though most Indians do carry the white gene.

Alice December 27, 2013 at 12:27 am

She isn’t wearing contacts. That is her natural eye colour. It is very easy to tell if someone is wearing contacts.

scott December 27, 2013 at 2:23 pm

that is a lie you posted recent pictures only, look at pictures when she was younger and her eyes are brown. IT SHOULD BE LISTED THAT HER EYES ARE BROWN BECAUSE THEY ARE

scott December 27, 2013 at 2:31 pm
Alice December 28, 2013 at 7:10 am

You need a good high definition close up picture of someone’s eyes and if they are wearing contacts it is obvious. Aishwarya Rai does not wear contacts. Also contacts don’t look like natural eye colour close up.

Here is someone where contacts lens. One of the give aways is if you look at the pupil you can see the natural colour. They are easy to pick.

Here’s another picture of someone with contacts.

http://i113.photobucket.com/albums/n231/sakura_keiko/durasoft3complementsgrepp8.jpg

Can you see the difference between natural coloured eyes and contacts?

scott December 28, 2013 at 4:04 pm

BOTH PICS LOOK THE SAME

look how reflective Aish eye is THAT IS PROOF THAT SHE IS WEARING CONTACTS

also its the bollywood directors who FORCE her to wear contacts so of course they are going to get realistic ones. BOLLYWOOD only hires Indian actresses and actors with light skin for some reason so they have to bleach their skin and wear contacts.

Bollywood even hires EUROPEAN and white SOUTH AMERICAN actresses to play Indian women. thats how obsessed they are, theres more active white actresses in bollywood than Indian

J.J. December 29, 2013 at 4:33 am

correction; whoever scott is, he’s obviously a very immature and ignorant person who is so set in his ways that he can’t believe aishwarya’s eyes are naturally the grey/green colour that they are due to her being of indian heritage. He’s acting rather aggressive and childish towards something he somehow feels so strongly about which doesn’t really make sense nor does he have proof of. Her eyes are light and are most definitely not any shade of brown, nor should they be listed as such, the possibly brown is quite false as it is just an assumption or theory if you will, it has no hard evidence or proof so therefore shouldn’t be listed just because some ignoramus says it should be, if anything his corrections should be completely ignored due to the way he’s acting

scott December 29, 2013 at 5:16 pm

correction; theres loads of childhood photos with her NATURAL brown eyes so thats proof that she wears contacts. and bollywood’s obsession with light skin is a bigger reason for her to wear contacts. And so what if the fact that shes Indian is the main reason I started doubting her eyes are natural? I don’t know about you but Ive never seen an Indian with light eyes because Indians dont have the light eyes gene, I would be suspicious of an asian with light eyes as well

notional December 20, 2013 at 6:24 pm

her eyes are light brown.shes wearing colored contacts look at the videos she bleached her skin so she could look more white she hates being indian.

scott December 26, 2013 at 4:53 pm

why do you say gray is green, and light blue? and you say that hazel is green, light brown, dark green and brown. Why? it can only be 1 colour.

J.J. December 26, 2013 at 5:55 pm

grey eyes are light blue, however eyes can look light blue but be green when looked at closely which makes them grey/green. Hazel is light golden/reddish brown resembling a hazelnut hence the word hazel, however in north America there is a misconception that hazel eyes are green and brown or any multi-coloured eye which is a myth. Do your research

agh November 27, 2013 at 12:00 pm

Of course (if those blue/green eyes aren’t contacts) she has some European ancestry somewhere. Give me a break. Doesn’t take away anything from her being a beautiful Indian woman. You’ve all been taught these lies about history (read race mixing – voluntarily or involuntarily in some cases) and stick your heads in the sand. Stop lying to yourself.

Alice November 27, 2013 at 7:01 pm

There are Central Asians, Afghani, Pakistani and Indian people with blue and green eyes that have no recent connection with Europe. Read up a bit more on the topic. Blue eyes first appeared to the north of the Black Sea area and the mutation most probably did go east as well as west. Also people have mixed way back in time and Europe and Asian are really one land mass so it’s not surprising that some traits from different populations appear in different places. Aishwarya Rai doesn’t have any known European ancestry.

scott December 26, 2013 at 4:50 pm

light coloured eyes are VERY rare in India even amongst Northern Indians, an Indian with light eyes is rarer than a black person with light eyes Id say

andrew December 26, 2013 at 4:59 pm

@alice

100% agree

indo December 26, 2013 at 4:47 pm

look at the before and after videos of here on youtube she bleached her skin and wears contacts.

Kat November 23, 2013 at 5:54 am

Pictures of her as a child clearly show dark brown eyes. There is a surgery where colored contact lenses can be implanted into someone’s eyes. Either that or she just wears colored contacts at all times. Also, yes they can look very real if you get expensive ones. You can also tell that she’s had a lot of plastic surgery done to her face. An indian woman can not naturally have these features.

andrew November 23, 2013 at 5:07 pm

this woman is Indian, and clearly White/Caucasian, even though Wikipedia still says she is the third “person of color” elected as governor of a Southern state.

Ignorant Comments November 15, 2013 at 11:31 am

Why are you guys acting like it’s impossible for an Indian to have light skin and blue/green eyes? Besides, Aishwarya is NOT the only Indian actor to have light skin and blue/green eyes. Look up Karishma Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor, Hrithik Roshan, and Sneha Ullal. And Rani Mukherjee has hazel eyes, if I remember correctly.

Ignorant Comments November 15, 2013 at 11:48 am

Indians are Caucasian anyways so they anthropologically they are white or Caucasian

Ignorant Comments November 27, 2013 at 11:16 am

I meant “white” in a European sense though. So many of these comments think she has English ancestry solely because of the color of her eyes.

notional November 4, 2013 at 4:20 pm

I didn’t think Indians could look that white, she even has light eyes. Was there any Caucasian migration to India in the past 1000 years?

That doesn’t make them Caucasian though, I know there are a significant population of Caucasians in India but it’s nowhere near 50% it’s closer to 5%.

The majority of black Africa speaks European languages, but that doesn’t mean they’re white.

andrew November 7, 2013 at 7:08 am

There are hundreds of millions of Caucasian people in India, what are you talkin’ about. Have you ever seen the average North Indian/Pakistani (just a different religion)? A Caucasian person with an olive to brown skin tone. Then there are the South Indians, a different thing.

I seriously don’t understand why some of you guys are saying that she looks white. No, she doesn’t. Her facial features and bone structure are common in many South Indian women that I have seen. I think you guys are just getting thrown off by her eye color, which by the way, is not uncommon for Indians to have. Just look up Karishma Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor, Hrithik Roshan, and Sneha Ullal.

DemetriLou March 15, 2013 at 4:30 pm

She’s not mixed but she definitely has something fake going on, I saw some pictures of her when she was young and she had Brown eyes so I think she might be wearing contacts which is not to say that Indians can’t have light eyes but I just can’t tell if they are natural.

betty boo April 21, 2013 at 12:50 am

@DemetriLou:

Yes there’s something fake about her now compared to before. But trust me, some indians have green eyes and blue eyes. Indians esp from india rarely intermarry. The indians however do not favour the green eyed and blue eyed indians. Most say that they dont think she’s very beautiful like we all think. They say they prefer whitter skin and not those coloured eyes. As you well know, asians preffer white pale skin to darker tanned skin. All in all i love Aish

betty boo February 24, 2013 at 7:49 pm

MMH PLEASE DONT TRY TO MIX HER UP LIKE USUAL SAYING ALL CELEBS ARE MIXED, SHE’S A PROUD INDIAN AND THAT’S IT, DONT START ADDING EUROPEAN BLOOD IN HER.

warner0001 February 22, 2013 at 10:00 am

Aishwarya Rai belongs to a community called ‘Bunt’. It is one of the few communities in India which continues the practice of Spirit Worship of Africa, along with worshiping God. But given a choice, spirit or God, they have no other way to go, except to opt for spirit worship.
This farming community one of the successful communities of the southern part of India. They are today spread across all parts.

She is very beautiful. She is actually known to be “the most beautiful woman in the world” there are so many arguments on her eyes… But actually many Indians have green eyes.. Even BEFORE the Portuguese arrived…. I too have green eyes and I’m 100% Indian… Although indians are predominantly brown eyed.. Many indians also have fair skin.. all whites think we r super dark.. but actually we are pretty fair skinned. she is not wearing contacts, and she doesn’t bleach her skin! to u all idiots who say Indians can’t b white or have green eyes..

In northen India, for example, is not uncommon to see caucasian people like her. For me, her facial features are perfectly caucasian.

Rebecca69 April 18, 2012 at 6:58 pm

Both her parents are brown eyed and overall quite a bit darker than Aishwarya. Genetics can really surprise every once in a while though, as evident in her case. She’s a very exotic beauty and is not a typical or average looking Indian at all. I think she represents the aesthetic ideal that the Indian people tend to strive for.

poppy1 April 21, 2012 at 8:26 am

She is very average for an average Indian girl especially a Punjabi Indian girl although she was born in the south of India.If you are comparing her with Tamil Indians or Indians from Nagaland or Sri Lanka then she may be different.
Her surname Rai is a Punjabi name. We could say that white girls look nothing like Marilyn Munro and they don’t.If we compare Italian girls to Anna Kournikova and then say Anna K is the whites idea of perfect beauty .Thats how it is.You get white parents with blue eyes and the kids have brown .But the fact is not every Punjabi or north Indian girl is famous so unless you go there and see for yourself you cannot say that its xyz. This look is average.This colouring of hair,skin and eye is average and really not commented on in India.
Her clothing and grooming befits her means in life.She is mega rich.Other girls wear normal clothes .Normal everyday white girls are not all beautiful or dressed for the catwalk.

Same goes for India but that look remains as its theirs by birth right.

lalala123 January 21, 2013 at 8:05 pm

She isn’t punjabi.. She’s tuvula. And she is pretty u can’t just say she is “average.” She was discovered from her beauty and was miss world. and did all those other North Indians turn out like that?? NO.

lol….seems like some people have major issues .They seem to believe that its not possible for an Indian to be beautiful or be fair or blue eyed unless there is a so called white person in the mix . Or somehow its not natural .Whites colour their hair and wear contacts but just bcuz you do does not mean Indians do.If they did they would ALL be wannabees with blond hair,blue eyes and light skinned.They are not bcuz they prefer to be natural.They are Indo-european naturally.They are caucasian naturally and nothing to do with the west,thank you.

So here we go with Kareena Kapoor……and if you say contacts or whatever just click on her grandfather Raj Kapoor and he has blue eyes BEFORE contact lenses were invented .

She doesn’t look Indian. She looks white, like Italian or some other type of Southern European.

She has white in her, otherwise she wouldn’t have coloured eyes. I’m sure she bleaches just like every other Bollywood actress, Indians can’t be that light.

poppy April 6, 2012 at 1:49 pm

lol….she is completely Indian and those are her natural eyes.
Heard of contacts and bleaching.Bleaching burns the skin off and Indian do not have money to burn.They are generally poor.

And Aishwarya is fully Indian and very average.Sorry about that ……

Mena April 6, 2012 at 1:57 pm

Not all Indians are dark.. even in the same family there can be darker and lighter like her.. and in some Arabs and Asians – India & Afghanistan & Pakistan- you can see people with blue eyes..

poppy April 1, 2012 at 7:26 am

The defination of caucasian is the gentics ,features and history pertaining to the peoples originating from the caucauses.Caucasia.This includes the peoples of Europe,middle east , North India and Arab north Africa .

It does not include Somalia as they are an off shoot of Africans.
North Africians are Arabs which are different.

poppy April 1, 2012 at 7:20 am

India is a collection of countries and peoples.India is like the EU .
Many countries.Many peoples and they vary north to south.East to west.

Up north they are like central Asians.The north west is a mix of Sakas (Scythians,white Huns,Greeks and Persians.The further south you go the less caucasian it is.75% of India is Indo-european or caucasian with small admixtures if that.So this mix looks like Armenians,Persians,East Europeans,south Europeans albeit in Indian dress.
Caucasia is in Central Asia.It is due north from Punjab.

The rest is on the East Asian borders and a mix of Indian with Chinese.
These look like Gurkhas,Tibet,Malays,Tajitks,Uzbeks etc.

In the very south you may get negroids and they are not mainstream at all.

The mainstream is the Indo-Aryan and Indo- European.

christian March 24, 2012 at 2:28 am

most americans are idiots, no wonder because of your highly chemicaled food and your bad education system

even indians can have natural blue/green eyes

because india was in contact with portugal centuries ago and most portugese are very white 50 percent of those portugese have black hair and blue eyes

i was in india and interestingly there are many blue and green eyed indians

Poppy March 30, 2012 at 5:17 am

No….Indians do not owe their colour of hair,skin and eye to Portugal .
Not a chance.The Portugese stayed only in Goa which is a small spot really.The redheads and light skin and hair types are found further up north where the Portugese never went.Those people can be lighter than Portugese and at the least the same colour.Only difference is they wear Indian clothes.Google Rohit Bal….a natural redhead from India. and then google up Raj Kapoor and compare him to Errol Flynn. Not a shade difference.Caucasians and Indo-europeans are in India without any help from the west and certainly not from Portugal.

Alice March 30, 2012 at 7:24 am

50% blue eyes in Portugal? I’d like to see a source for that. Portugal is predominantly brown eyed.

chick March 30, 2012 at 11:08 am

why people here always want to try to claim that Aishwarya is mixed? Indians are Caucasians like Arabs and Persians and they are not white or have any kind of mixing with Europeans. Get over it.

Also, I personally don’t find her attractive. She’s got beautiful eyes, but that’s it, her features are very average, and she wears a lot of make up. There are many woman in India that are way better looking than her.

David March 11, 2012 at 3:24 am

She looks very Indian! I would never confuse here anything else. Also, just because she has light colored eyes does not mean she is part white! There are a lot of Indians with blue and green eyes! Everything about her says Indian! :)

poppy March 11, 2012 at 9:54 am

Totally agree with you there.She is average looking for an Indian girl.Her skin,eyes,hair,features etc are the features of a normal average girl in north India.
She is indo-European type Indian whereas on TV they seem to be intent on showing only the type who fits in with the image of poor India.There is poor Indian and they are exploited by the politicians in India and the western media to make a point. The broad spectrum of Indians are hardworking people who have no money or time for vainty.They work as best they can. India particularly in the north is 75% Indo-european or caucasian or aryan.Of course the west thinks those 3 words belong to them only and if they see an Aish Rai type they think….a white man is in the mix!
No….its natural genetics.

Indians fit into the Caucasian category, according to most anthropologists (their skull shape, teeth, etc)

72% of people from India are Caucasoid, 25% of people from India are Black/Australoid and 3% Mongoloid

The Oxford Dictionary gives this definition of Caucasian: 1 relating to a broad division of humankind covering peoples from Europe, western Asia, and parts of India and North Africa.

Thumb me down as much as yall want, its the goddamn fact

SHE IS MIXED,SHE IS PRETTY TO BE ONLY INDIAN

Heather April 6, 2012 at 3:52 pm

Bless you, you ignorant soul. India produces some of the most beautiful women in the world. She is FULL Indian, many Indians have Aryan blood and that is why she looks “mixed” to you.

eMI February 26, 2012 at 4:47 pm

SHE HAS BLUE EYES,SHE IS WHITE

Kashfia February 22, 2012 at 10:01 pm

Aishwarya has got to have some European ancestry because her eyes are naturally blue green. Only people of European descent have naturally blue or green eyes. If Aishwarya Rai was 100% Indian, her eyes would have been brown or black.

MP February 17, 2012 at 10:04 pm

She likely has some Scottish or Irish Ancestry.

Maria Rivera February 10, 2012 at 9:57 am

I have never seen a person from India with beautiful Green Eyes! She is extremely beautiful!

Suma Joesph February 8, 2012 at 1:19 am

She’s stunning! Yet despite her good genetics, is she a good person?

She looks very Indian actually. And oh my, she really is beautiful.

anen February 7, 2012 at 5:02 pm

Maybe her slight indian coloring but everything else looks European judging from this picture alone. Nothing like the other Indian actress seen on this website.

Aria February 6, 2012 at 9:26 pm

Like many other Indians from the upper castes (she is from the Bunt community: nobility), she has many europeans features. You can see the indo-european ascendance in her!
And yes she’s pretty :)

maria February 5, 2012 at 10:45 am

she has beautiful eyes!!

Marisol January 27, 2012 at 10:20 pm

She is B-E-A-U-Tiful.!!

kevknocks January 25, 2012 at 5:58 pm

she does not look like a typical Indian Women..shes mixed with English!!

me January 25, 2012 at 6:03 pm

She’s not mixed,if I said that Angelina Jolie is mixed? she does not look like typical white woman. So, both are not mixed.

? January 26, 2012 at 2:43 am

Yes me you have stated several times that Angelina Jolie is mixed so what your point exactly you think you can go around saying every white woman is mixed because they have big lips.But when someone says this Indian woman is mixed you get mad yeah double standards much get yourself togerther contradicting yourself the whole time.Any white girl thats looks exotic as you think has to be mixed but any other race you get mad if someone says they are mixed not just that race.I dont think Aishwarya is mixed but you are so annoying.Stop wanting it one way for one race and different standards for different races

me January 26, 2012 at 8:51 am

I changed my mind. Aishwarya Rai and Angelina Jolie are really exotic and different from the average Indian and white. But that does not mean that they are mixed, Aishwarya has completely Indian parents and Angelina has totally Caucasian parents.

? January 26, 2012 at 11:43 am

Well that is good me.I seen some of your previous posts and was kinda mad but i applaud your honesty and changing your point of view and that you dont have to to mixed or different race to look a certain way.Thanks for clearing that up:)

MP March 1, 2012 at 12:41 am

They both have Caucasian parents.

Alice January 26, 2012 at 7:33 am

India is a vast country. There are some Indians that have lighter traits like Aishwarya. You can see Indians with blue eyes but more seem to have green eyes. The vast majority have brown eyes of course. India has had many different people going back to ancient times. The Indians are also classified as Caucasians. Kashmiris are one of the groups of Indians that have light skin. In North Western India there are more people with lighter eye colours. Though Aishwarya herself is from South India. She is very beautiful.

Bhagat Singh Thind case from 1923 debating if people from India were entitled to US citzenship. Part quote from the above article “The court conceded that Indians were “Caucasians” and that anthropologists considered them to be of the same race as white Americans” Interesting article about race.

Of or being a human racial classification distinguished especially by very light to brown skin pigmentation and straight to wavy or curly hair, and including peoples indigenous to Europe, northern Africa, western Asia, and India.

INDIANS HAVE DARK PEOPLE

AND

INDIANS HAVE LIGHT PEOPLE

LIGHTSKINNED

Alice February 23, 2012 at 3:35 am

India is probably the only country with the most diverse mix of races. There are Australoid, Mongoloid, Caucasian and Negroid according to this site. There is quite a mixture in India. In the North there are more caucasoid people that have lighter features. http://www.india-travel-agents.com/india-guide/people.html
Afghanistan also has people with lighter features. Remember that famous picture in National Geographic of Sharbut Gula the Afghan girl with her piercing green eyes.

BRAZIL March 14, 2012 at 12:36 am

indians are not caucasians


indians are asian – period

Alice March 14, 2012 at 1:51 am

Yes Indians are Asians but Asia is a vast continent. Middle Eastern people such as Iranians (who were known as Persians) and Iraqis are considered Caucasian and Asian. Some Indians are classified as Caucasian. I think people think that a Caucasian has to have white skin but they are quite varied in their looks. It is not just a European group. North Africans are classified as Caucasian. Read more on it if you would like to know more.

MP March 15, 2012 at 11:53 pm

Indians are not Asians….they are Indians.

She looks like a hot cougar

laura January 21, 2012 at 11:05 pm

cougar???? smh

me December 29, 2011 at 7:18 am

I dont understand this fascination with her, the only thing she has and the average Indian women no has are blue eyes. She cleared the hair and skin. When she was young she was a normal as the other Indians.

mm January 17, 2012 at 7:15 pm

Thinking she’s not attractive has nothing to do with racism. He didn’t mention her race as the reason for his opinion. But I think she’s gorgeous!
