Amitabh, bahu Aishwarya launch Kalyan Jewellers store


Kalyan Jewellers have roped in megastar Amitabh Bachchan as their brand ambassador for a new store launch in Chennai. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was already the brand ambassador and now Big B joined.

Apart from Big B and Ash, Tamil film actor Prabhu, Nagarjuna and Shiva Rajkumar were spotted during the launch in Chennai on Friday.

The new store launched was spread across 40,000 square foot. The company invested Rs 200 crore for the new venture, according to Kalyan Jewellers Chairman and Managing Director Kalyan Raman,

The store includes five lakh designs and can housed 500 customers at a time. Police had a tough time controlling the public. They went berserk on seeing their favourite stars in their city.

“I have been associated with the Tamil film industry including late actor superstar Shivaji Ganesan for the last 40 years. I am happy to be a part of the Kalyan Jewellers launch in Chennai,” said Big B, clad in a traditional silk dhoti and shirt.

Dressed in a white and golden salwar with big hanging earnings, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan said the inauguration of the Kalyan Jewellers store was perhaps special for her as she shared the stage with her father-in-law Amitabh Bachchan.

She termed the inauguration as “a historic moment for Chennai and Kalyan Jewellers”. The company is planning to open four more showrooms in Chromepet, Adyar, Velacherry and Anna Nagar.
