Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is well known for being politically correct and never saying anything 'controversial'. In 2005, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan had graced Oprah Winfrey's talk show and she was accused of being coy on questions of sexual mores. To which Aishwarya had told Rediff, "I speak for myself. I've never said I'd never kiss or whatever on screen. I've always maintained I'd cross that bridge when I come to it. Again, I'm accused of playing it safe. The truth is, I don't know what tomorrow holds. So I can't make a close-ended principle about it."

Speaking about the same, Aishwarya was quoted as saying, "Ash-bashing is what's going on constantly over here! Someone asked me why I'm politically correct, even when people hit out so openly at me. But the truth is, I've never been brought up to behave any other way."
Aishwarya Had Further Added..
"I can't say anything hurtful about anyone. I just don't believe in saying mean things. I won't feel good doing that. It's strange why being well-behaved is perceived as being too 'propah' and staid. This is the way I am."
