Aishwarya Rai is now an industrialist too
March 11, 2006
Aishwarya Rai

Stars not just earn good money, they are also smart in investing it wisely. Their eagerness to save for the rainy day drives them towards established avenues as well as new and exciting ventures. For example, it is common to find actors and actresses acquiring prime property as real estate shows tremendous appreciation. Rajinikanth, Vijayakanth, Vijay, Prashanth and Sneha are known to be deeply interested in picking up chunks of property. International star Aishwarya Rai has created headlines by announcing to plonk Rs.10 crores in a windmill project in Maharashtra.
Maharashtra is known to be a power-starved state in India. The state government has been planning to install plants for generating electricity from renewable energy sources like wind, tidal waves etc. Last year there was a proposal to launch one such project. It invited celebrities to invest in the project. Aish and Sachin Tendulkar showed some interest. But, they backed out after they found the terms uninteresting. Now, the government has repackaged the scheme with liberal tax holidays and other sops. Therefore, Aish has decided to go ahead with the investment. More celebrities are expected to follow suit.

The windmill project will come up at Thanthane village in Nandurbar district of Maharashtra. It would have a capacity of 2.5 megawatt.

Current heartthrob Surya has also invested in a windmill project in Tamilnadu.
