Aishwarya Rai awarded ‘Outstanding Celebrity Woman of the Year’

Bollywood diva Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has bagged the ‘Outstanding Celebrity Woman of the Year’ award, while featuring among Outlook Business' 19 outstanding women. The former Miss World featured on the cover of the magazine which read, ‘19 women achievers share their successful, entrepreneurial journey in a candid conversation with Outlook Business’.

Aishwarya looked gorgeous in an embroidered Manish Malhotra gown, open hair and minimal make-up, as she arrived to collect the award. Speaking at the event held in Mumbai, the actress mentioned that she was thankful and happy.

She shared her success mantra and advised women to be the best version of themselves every day. "Every working day, try to be the best version of yourself," Aishwarya said. The 42-year-old yummy-mummy revealed that the most beautiful experience of her life was her daughter Aaradhya.

Aishwarya is a hands-on mother and makes it a point to spend as much as possible with Aaradhya and the mother-daughter duo are often spotted together. In fact, she even took a break from acting to take care of her daughter, and made a comeback after five years with ‘Jazbaa’ which released last year.

Last seen in Omung Kumar directed biopic ‘Sarabjit’, Aishwarya will be soon seen romancing Ranbir Kapoor in Karan Johar’s directorial ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ which also stars Anushka Sharma, Fawad Khan and Shah Rukh Khan in a cameo. The film is set to hit screens on October 28.
