Upon her arrival in the country's entertainment capital, Winfrey went to visit the Bachchan residence Jalsa to meet Abhishek and Aishwarya's two month-old daughter, nicknamed Beti B.

After spending over an hour at the house, the 57-year-old was seen in the car with Abhishek in the passenger seat, and Aishwarya and Winfrey in the rear seat. Winfrey wore an orange sari for the occasion.

Big B, who is often spotted behind the wheels, was overwhelmed to meet her, and more than happy to drive her around to socialite Parmeshwar Godrej's residence, where the star-studded bash was organised.

"The gracious Oprah Winfrey visits our home, to meet us and bless the baby…warm hearted, endearing…drive her to party in her honour. And Oprah in sari…looking lovely!!" tweeted Big B post the party.

Winfrey is on her maiden visit to India. She is scheduled to attend the Jaipur Literature Festival, and is primarily here to shoot for her new show Next Chapter.


For Aishwarya and Oprah, this was more of a catching-up session, as Ash has appeared on Winfrey's chat show twice - in 2005 and then again in 2009. Aishwarya was the first Bollywood star to appear on Oprah's "Women Across the Globe" segment. Here's a video clip from her 2009 chat with the media mogul.
