Aishwarya Rai Bachan and Pharrell Williams grace the cover of 'Vogue India'
Pharrell Williams, American singer/songwriter of 'Happy' fame visited India recently and he was seen taking in the culture and beauty that Bollywood has to offer, even turning up at a Holi party that Ranveer Singh hosted.

Rumours of Williams being considered for the cover of Vogue India came true when we say him and Bollywood Diva, Aishwarya Rai Bachan gracing the cover of the illustrious magazine and they look absolutely flawless. Together, the duo, “represent the boundary-blurring appeal of true global icons.”

According to Aishwarya, in an interview with Vogue, “It’s busy! In the superlative, I spend all my time with Aaradhya, and I have one nanny, by choice. I read comments saying, “Ah, she must have an army of help’ and I understand the perception, but I choose this way, which means life is always busy.”

She further added, “I respect homemakers for the endless work they do. As far as downtime goes, it’s about perspective. If you believe you’re tired, you will be, so I choose to find pleasure in the moment and experience the present for what it is.”

The former Miss World is well known for staying away from all things social media, when asked whether she would be making a debut on Instagram she said, “I’m not remotely averse to social media, but when it first began, it became a bit of a rat race of numbers, and I’ve never been into that,” said Aishwarya. “Also, social media is addictive. People use it to hide from and lose the human connect. It is, however, the present and the future and it’s great for connecting with fans, for voicing important issues and a great business tool for brands. I do recognize its value, and if I feel the need I’ll embrace it — transparently and honestly,” she added.

Pharrell, talked about the causes that he works for and admires. He also opened up about potential collaorations he hopes would become true.“I’m no role model; I’m just an advisor. That’s why as a producer, I’m able to push people in certain directions to find a uniqueness in their voice, their intentions and their purpose — that’s my job!

“It doesn’t need to but it’s good that it does. I think everything we do should have some sort of message or intention, or else it’s just wasted energy,” Pharrell further added.

He was even asked whether he identified as a feminist? To which he responded, “I used to be scared of saying I’m a feminist because then someone would be like ‘Oh then why did you have these lyrics?’ but I am…because I believe in equality,” he says.
