Aishwarya Rai's father Krishnaraj Rai who passed away on March 18, 2017, was an army biologist while her mother, Brinda is a homemaker. Later, her family moved to Mumbai, where Ash attended the Arya Vidya Mandir High School.  

Last year, the actor was in Mangaluru to perform the religious rites following the death of her father with her mother Brinda and daughter Aradhya.

On many occasions, we have seen the actor in the south Indian attire or performing their family rituals in Tulu style.

Even her godh bharai, which is known as bayake in Tulu, was performed in the traditional Mangalorean style. A troupe from the south was reportedly called in to play Mangalorean music and white flowers especially jasmine, as well as brass urlis (ritualistic Kerala lamps made of bell metal), were part of the decor. 

The cuisine ranged from aapam, Malabar parathas, prawns, egg stew, fish curry, roast urlakalang, yene kathrika, Hyderabadi biryani, curd rice, steamed fish and paneer in banana leaf.

When she won her Miss World crown in 1994, she was seen having south Indian food with her mother sitting on the floor.
