In the 19 years that she has been an actor, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has become a star not only in India, but also globally. The former Miss World has represented Indian cinema on several platforms, and will be doing the same this Republic Day (January 26).
A source close to the actor says that the 42-year-old has been invited by François Richier, the Ambassador of France to India, to have lunch with French President François Hollande, in Delhi.
Aishwarya is currently busy shooting for her upcoming film, and will take time out especially to attend this event. “She will fly out on the night of January 25, post the shoot of her film,” adds the source.
Apparently, Aishwarya is the only Bollywood actor to have been invited for the prestigious luncheon, which will be hosted by Richier at a prominent Indian industrialist’s residence in the capital. It will also be attended by top Indian officials.
