Aishwarya Rai Bachchan attended the award ceremony with daughter Aaradhya Bachchan and her mother Vrinda Rai. At the event, Aishwarya dazzled in an Egyptian style attire, with a black and gold gown with tulle pleated in layers. She completed the look with minimal accessories including a gold bracelet.
Meryl Streep award is the first of a kind hosted by Women in Film and Television (WIFT) which basically aims at recognising women achieveres across the globe and give them a chance to shine in an industry that's dominated by men. The reason why the award is name after Meryl Streep is because she's considered to be an inspiration not just for her extraordinary body of work but also for her charitable endeavors.
Janhvi Kapoor and Zoya Akhtar too were honoured at this awards ceremony yesterday.
On the work front, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan will reunite on screen after Mani Ratnam’s Raavan, with Sarvesh Mewara’s Gulab Jamun. The film will reportedly go on floors next year.
