Aaradhya is not even a-year-old and this toddler, who has been kept away from the prying eyes of media, hogged the limelight at an event to honour her mother, actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.
Dressed in a white frock and floral hairband, Beti B grabbed all the attention with her cute antics on Thursday at an event where Aishwarya received the prestigious French Knight of the Order of Arts and Letters for her contribution to the arts.
The entire Bachchan family, with the exception of Jaya Bachchan, were present to support the actress. Aishwarya's parents were also there.
Entering the hall in her mother's arms, Aaradhya didn't like it one bit when Aishwarya was called on the podium to receive the honour. Her constant cries forced her dotting dad Abhishek to carry her outside.
Dad Abhishek tries to console crying Aaradhya.
Aishwarya reasoned it out saying: "It gets overwhelming for babies. That's why we get protective. We would love to share our personal moments with all of you, but we tend to take care of our babies."
The actress is thoroughly enjoying motherhood. "I am realising what it takes to be a mother. Thank you (Abhishek) for giving me such an indefinable experience of being a mother. It surpasses everything," she said while looking at Abhishek.
Happy Bachchan family
The mother-daughter duo is inseparable. Beti B accompanied Aishwarya to Cannes film festival this year and they also travelled to Chicago to visit Abhishek on the sets of Dhoom 3.
Aradhaya was also seen at grandfather Amitabh Bachchan's 70th birthday bash.
Aaradhya will celebrate her first birthday on November 16.
