THE AGE OF THE INDIAN actress is upon us, and with it, the curiosity of legions of fans about the minutiae of their lives. In the case of Bollywood beauties Priyanka Chopra and Aishwarya Rai, one of the perennial pieces of trivia is the question, what is their age and height?

RAI VS CHOPRA - AGE AND HEIGHT
Once cited by the press as “the most beautiful woman in the world”, actress and former model Aishwarya Rai was born on November 1, 1973 in Mangalore, Karnataka, India. Her father, Krishnaraj Rai, was a marine biologist, while her mother, Brindya, was a housewife. Aishwarya is 40 years of age, and 5' 7" (1.70m) in height. By contrast, actress and former Miss World and Miss India, Priyanka Chopra was born on July 18, 1982, in Jamshedpur, Jharkhand, India. Her father, Captain Ashok Chopra, and her mother Madhu, were both physicians in the Indian army. Priyanka is 31, and 5' 7¼" (1.71 m) in height.

GOOGLE ON AISHWARYA RAI & PRIYANKA CHOPRA
The curiosity, if not obsession, which fans have about the aesthetics and physical dimensions of today’s movie star’s have now reached giddy new heights. To a far lesser degree than men, female actors are still judged on appearance, and in the modern age this level of interest in the faces and bodies of female film stars can be measured on the Internet, where search statistics reveal much about the things fans are thinking. In the case of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Priyanka Chopra, the figures are particularly interesting. Every month 6,300 people, mostly in India, Google the phrase, “Priyanka Chopra’s height”, from their computers and smartphones. This is the same number who also Google “Aishwarya Rai’s height”. Alongside this, 2,900 Indians a month Google “Priyanka Chopra’s age”, while 3,600 search “Aishwarya Rai’s age”.

Add all these numbers up and it amounts to over 250,000 Asians a year seeking these simple facts from the oracle that is the Internet. And one thing is for sure — that as more and more of the India's 1.2 billion citizens gain access to smartphones and computers, their feverish interest in their stars will only intensify.

The new book BLACK BEAUTY by Ben Arogundade is out now.

AISHWARYA RAI - Height: 5' 7" (1.70m) Age: 40

PRIYANKA CHOPRA - Height: 5' 7¼" (1.71m) Age: 31
