Aishwarya honoured with French award on birthday


In 2009, Aishwarya was to be conferred the same award, but she did not accept it because her father was unwell

Francois Richier, Ambassador of France to India on behalf of the French authorities conferred the honour of 'Knight of the Order of Arts and Letters' (Chevalier dans l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres), the second highest civilian French honour on Aishwarya Rai Bachchan on November 1, her birthday. The prestigious honour comes in recognition of her invaluable contribution to the world of cinema and the development of Indo-French cooperation in cinema, art and culture.

In her speech, Aishwarya thanked the French government for honouring her with the award.

Aishwarya's entire family including husband Abhishek, father-in-law Amitabh Bachchan, parents Vrinda Rai and Krishnaraj Rai and brother Aditya Rai were present. Daughter Aaradhya made her second public appearance in full glare of the media.

Earlier Amitabh Bachchan was awarded France's highest civilian award, the Legion d'Honneur in 2007. In 2009, Aishwarya was to be conferred upon the same award but she did not accept it as her father Krishnaraj Rai was unwell.

Presently the actress is the brand ambassador of Kalyan Jewellers and L'Oréal.
