Mumbai: It is the proud moment for beautiful Indian actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan as she now holds the honour of being the first actress to hoist Indian flag in Melbourne.
The actress flew to Melbourne along with her daughter Aaradhya to attend Indian Film Festival Melbourne 2017.
The mother-daughter duo raised the flag and sang the National Anthem. Little Aaradhya stood with patience as her mother gave a speech and exchanged pleasantries. “Thank you so much Melbourne, thank you all of you for giving us such a moment of pride and happiness with so much love and warmth. Celebrating our 70th year of Independence Day will forever be personally such a beautiful memory for me and my dearest Aaradhya,” said Aishwarya who first spoke in Hindi and then translated it into English.
The Ae Dil Hai Mushkil actress will next hit the screen as a singer in Fanney Khan which also stars Anil Kapoor. Directed by Atul Manjrekar, the film is a comeback of Aishwarya with Anil Kapoor. Fanney Khan is being produced by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, KriArj Entertainment and T-Series.
