I think it's the opposite. Khan was in the film 'My Name is Khan.' How many Hollywood films has Rai been in?

SRK has never been in a Hollywood move, 'My Name Is Khan' was a Bollywood movie and Aishwarya Rai has acted far more Hollywood movies than SRK, she was in the 'Pink Panther' and many other Hollywood movies, she also won Miss.World, therefore she has more international recognition than SRK.

Perhaps, I'm no expert in Bollywood. I've seen quite a few SRK films, can't think of any that Aishwarya Rai has been in though, though the name is familiar.

The answers can be extremely different.
Generally who are well known in the world will also be well-known in their home country, and foreign starts who were well known in their home country is just kind of like well known in the world.

Aishwarya Rai is definitely more well known in than Shahrukh Khan, at least in America.
