Rai competed for the title of Miss India in the 1994 pageant, but lost to Sushmita Sen, coming in second place. While Sen went on to compete in the Miss Universe pageant, Rai, as the runner-up, entered the Miss World pageant. Both Sen and Rai won, and it was the launch of Rai's career.

Rai began dating fellow Bollywood actor Salman Khan in 1999. Their relationship was heavily covered by the press and the tabloids. They broke up in 2001, and Rai said that the reason for their split was verbal, physical, and emotional abuse, as well as infidelity.

Rai met Abhishekk Bachchan on a film set that they both were acting in, around 2000. Afterward, they appeared in another film together, and got to know each other better. During this time, Bachchan fell in love with Rai, though she was still with her boyfriend Khan. After Khan and Rai broke up in 2001, Bachchan and Rai became a couple soon afterward. They announced their engagement in 2007, and married in April of that year. They now have one daughter together, and are frequently referred to as the Indian "supercouple."

Through her marriage, Rai is the daughter-in-law of Amitabh Bachchan. 

Rai has been attributed by many magazines, websites, and publications as being "the most beautiful woman in the world." But additionally, when asked who the most beautiful woman in the world was, even Julia Roberts herself answered that it was Rai.
