It’s been a proud moment for Aishwarya Rai Bachchan who’s currently in Melbourne with daughter Aaradhya Bachchan at the IFFM (Indian Film Festival of Melbourne). The beauty was seen hoisting the national flag with her lil’doll at the Federation Square.
The mother-daughter duo hoisted the Indian flag as a part of the celebration of 70th year of India’s Independence. It’s said both Aishwarya and Aaradhya even sang the National Anthem there. Aishwarya has become the first female actor ever to hoist the national flag at an annual ceremony.
We saw Aaradhya twinning with momma Aishwarya in beautiful white and powder blue tone ethnic wear. Thrilled Aishwarya thanked everyone present there in her speech as she 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 twitter handle of IFFM also shared a picture of the Bachchan beauties with a caption that read, “Aishwarya Rai Bachchan hoists the Indian national flag at @FedSquare celebrating the 70th yr of Indian independence.”
