The leading beauty received the fourth highest civilian award, which is the Padma Shri from the Indian government in the year 2009.

This Indian diva is set to celebrate her birthday this year by receiving one of the most prestigious French awards recognizing her achievements in the filmdom and the development of Indo-French cooperation in cinema, art and culture. Ash will be joining the league of actors who have received this prestigious award. The other actors who have received the French honor includes: Nandita Das, Shahrukh Khan, Habib Tanvir and Hollywood stars George Clooney and Meryl Streep. Ash being the youngest of them all to receive the honor is happy and excited about it.

The French government is said to converse upon the Knight of the Order of Arts and Letters on the 1st of November 2012 by the Ambassador of France on behalf of the French authorities.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan refused to accept the award that she was to receive by the French government back in 2009 since her father Krishnaraj Rai was keeping ill.  

It happened to be that last year again Aishwarya Rai couldn’t receive the honor as it was found that the French government had postponed the ceremony. The French government postponed it due to the Mumbai bomb blast, that is, in respect to those who lost their lives on that dastardly mishap.

A matter of fact is that Amitabh Bachchan, Aishwarya’s father in law also received the higher French civilan honour, the Légion d'honneur. This honor has also been received by late filmmaker Satyajit Ray and Pandit Ravi Shankar.

This special day will see all her family members from both the sides, that is, her parents and her in laws will be present at the occasion doubling her happiness and joy. All the family members are keeping themselves free to make sure that the lady gets the company of each of them on her birthday.

No wonder this Diva is making news in the industry with her work!
