Gurinder Chadha, NRI director of Aishwarya Rai-starrer Bride and Prejudice has been honoured at the House of Commons for her outstanding achievement and contribution to the British film industry.

Describing her hit film Bend It Like Beckham as the biggest British-financed and distributed film, Keith Vaz, MP, and former minister for Foreign and Commonwealth Office said on Tuesday night that it was impossible to quantify the achievements of Gurinder Chadha.

"Her hit film Bend It Like Beckham is the biggest British-financed and distributed film and Bride and Prejudice is the Number 1 in the Box Office chart in Britain," he said at a reception hosted in her honour by himself and two other MPs John Barrett and Michael Fabricant along with the ROKO Cancer Appeal headed by APS Chawla.
