Are you still remember those slam books or it just faded with the time?
A ‘slam book’ entry supposedly made by actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan went viral on Monday evening, but that’s not the whole truth. Aishwarya’s fan clubs circulated this page titled ‘These Are a Few of My Favourite Things’:
The ones which were in style in a world sans smartphones and the internet, where we ran out all our secrets and made promises to meet once school was over? Yes, those were the times, and seems like our Bollywood celebrities too were not untouched by the trend. Yesterday, a slam book entry of none other than Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was doing rounds, and people got all excited and nostalgic about it.
But wait, is it true, or is it just some fake thing doing rounds over the internet, as we love to lap up any news of our beloved celebrities? So this was the entry that was doing rounds. It was shared by one of the fan clubs of Aishwarya, as the diva herself does not have a Twitter handle.
The so-called ‘slam book’ entry is actually a feature from entertainment magazine Stardust. The long-running ‘Favourite Things’ feature has interviewed most of Bollywood.
The questions were presumably answered by Aishwarya during her early days in the industry. Some answers are interesting – for instance when the 42-year-old actress was asked about her “biggest asset,” she wrote, “Genuineness. (Nothing about me is plastic).”
Aishwarya, who is now married to actor Abhishek Bachchan, also said then that she loves “the idea of being in love, being in love and love.” She also said that she’d be turned on “by the one who’ll lead me to ‘the light’… even in the dark.”

As much as we would like to believe that this is Aishwarya’s handwritten teenage confessions, these are not. On observing keenly, we found that this was, in fact, a feature in a popular magazine, where a candid celebrity interview is published in the form of ‘slam book’ entries.
