It’s indeed a very proud moment for Aishwarya Rai Bachchan as she hosted the Indian flag with her daughter Aaradhya in Melbourne this morning. The two hoisted the Indian flag as a part of their celebration of 70th year of India’s Independence. The two not only hosted the flag but also sang the National Anthem, Jana Gana Mana.
The actress who’s there for IFFM 2017, got lucky to be the first Indian actress to host the National Flag in Melbourne.
While she looked stunning donning a white and light blue floor length anarkali dress, her darling daughter Aradhya can be seen in a white ghagra choli.
Thanking Melbourne for giving such an honour to her, Aishwarya said, “Thank you so much Melbourne, thank you everyone for giving us such a moment of pride and happiness with so much love and warmth. Celebrating our 70th Independence Day will forever be such a beautiful memory for me and my dearest Aaradhya.” The actor first spoke in Hindi and then went on to translate her words into English for the non-Hindi speaking audience.
