Proud sasuraalwaale: Krishnaraj and Vrinda Rai
Shrima Rai wins pageant. Will B-Town beckon her, too?
Looks like Aishwarya Rai has competiton on the homefront! Her brother Aditya Rai's wife Shrima Rai was the first runner-up at the Gladrags Mrs India 2009 pageant over the weekend. The 27-year-old has no modelling experience. Wonder if she harbours acting aspirations like her sis-in-law? Lending Shrima support at the event were Aditya with his parents Krishnaraj and Vrinda Rai. It was after a long gap that Krishnaraj, a cancer patient made a public apperance. But Ash was missing at the event. Guess she did not want to take the spotlight away from her bhabhi. Ash was also the first runner-up at the Miss India contest in 1994.
