A paparazzo account shared a video of the Bachchans at the airport. Aishwarya was in her usual black leggings, paired with a matching overcoat and heels. She walked with her hand around Aaradhya's shoulder. When a few kids approached her to pose for a picture with them, she obliged. As she joined her daughter again to walk towards the airport entry, the media requested them for a family picture. Aishwarya called Abhishek to join them before they all posed together for the photographers.
Fans of Aishwarya were happy to see her. A fan commented on the video, “Beautiful and humble.” Another said, "The most beautiful woman ever walked on this planet. Aishu." A fan also wrote in praise of Aaradhya, “Her daughter is GORGEOUS.”
