There is no denying the fact that Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has made herself a household name, not only in India but in countries abroad as well. Much before Priyanka Chopra made the world go head-over-heels, it was Aishwarya who was leading the international circuit. To add to the many feathers in her crown, she is now being honoured at the Indian Film Festival Of Melbourne and will also hoist the Indian National Flag.
“The Indian film festival of Melbourne is honoured to welcome Aishwarya Rai Bachchan as our much loved guest to IFFM this year. She’s a global icon and extremely loved by the audiences in Australia. It will be a proud moment for all Indians, when she becomes the first Indian woman to hoist the national flag at the pulse point of Melbourne – the Federation square in light of her incredible contribution to world cinema. She will be felicitated by the government,” says festival director Mitu Bhowmick Lange.
Aishwarya, you make us proud and how!
