It was indeed a moment of pride for Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and her little daughter Aaradhya Bachchan, who hoisted the Indian flag as a part of their celebration of 70th year of India’s Independence at Melbourne.
The mother-daughter duo chose to wear Indian attires as they sang the national anthem.
Thanking Melbourne for giving such an honour to her, Aishwarya said, “Thank you everyone for giving us such a moment of pride and happiness with so much love and warmth. Celebrating our 70th year of our Independence will forever be such a beautiful memory for me and my dearest Aaradhya.”
Apart from Aishwarya, many other actors from the film industry have also flown to Melbourne to attend the festival. Aishwarya has become the first female actor ever to hoist the tricolour at the annual ceremony.
