Jeena Isi Ka Naam Hai was one of the last shows that offered an insight into the lives of celebrities. And this particular episode with Aishwarya Rai, stood out because of how wholesome and heartwarming it was. From her high school principal to her photographers, directors and brother, they all came together to share what Aishwarya means to them. 

Here are some of our favourite moments from the episode:
