Photo: Ash's Mona Lisa look

newMona Lisa's smile may still be a mystery but Bollywood, as usual, has managed to come around it.

Aishwarya Rai [Images] takes over from Leonardo da Vinci's masterpiece in artist Ratan Parimoo's latest work.

The 72-year-old exhibited his first paintings in Jehangir art gallery, South Mumbai, after a break of nine years.

He adapted Mona Lisa [Images] as the archetypal female and also compared her metaphorically with well known female characters from both European and Indian art history.

In the picture: Artists Ananya Banerji and Amisha Mehta pose in front of Ash as Mona Lisa.
