The stress of pregnancy and motherhood does not seem to have affected Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's beauty... at least such is the information a newly released photograph of the Bollywood star, posing with American talk show host Oprah Winfrey conveys to us.

The photograph was actually taken in January, when Oprah - a family friend of the Bachchans - visited India. However, it has only now been posted to the former Miss World's Twitter site. Incidentally, Oprah was in India to shoot for a forthcoming show, "Next Chapter.

Oprah's visit to India was timed shortly after the actress gave birth to her first daughter (with Abhishek Bachchan). She visited the happy couple at the Bachchan's residence in Mumbai, to congratulate Aishwarya and welcome her daughter, Aaradhya. The Bachchans were the perfect hosts for their guests, with the new mother showing Oprah the city and the sights. In fact, her first public appearance was at a party thrown by Parmeshwar Godrej, an Indian businessman, for Oprah.

"India was a real #NextChapter dream for me. Leaving home of Abishek & Ashwirya having just seen their gorgeous baby," Oprah tweeted earlier.

Meanwhile, Celebs Gather described Aishwarya's outfit - in the tweeted photo - as "both intricate and beautiful - a cream-coloured suit with dazzling embroidery that complimented the sari she had gifted Oprah quite perfectly."

More importantly, there are rumours Aishwarya might present her daughter, in public, for the first time, on Oprah's new show. There are also speculations the actress could make a comeback with "Sarkar 3" but there is no confirmed news on either score.

On a more glamorous note, Aishwarya is expected to attend the Cannes Film Festival next month; she is a regular face at the prestigious event. We wonder if Aaradhya will accompany her mother...
