Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was honoured with the esteemed Dadasaheb Phalke award in Mumbai for her performance in Sarbjit, that released last year.
The actress was all smiles at the event and posed with Hema Malini for the shutterbugs.
Aishwarya looked breathtakingly stunning in an Anju Modi outfit as she appeared at the venue in Mumbai to receive the honour, which is the most prestigious award of Indian cinema.
In the film, Aishwarya essayed the role of Sarabjit’s sister Dalbir Kaur who moved heaven and earth to seek global attention towards her brother’s plight in a Pakistani prison.
Although Aishwarya made her comeback to Bollywood with Jazbaa, the movie didn’t quite work for her. She was then seen in Sarbjit and Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and was much appreciated in both the films.
On the work front, there are reports that she might be paired with her husband Abhishek Bachchan in Mani Ratnam’s next.
