Apart from being happy about the fact that Aishwarya Rai Bachchan will be becoming a mother soon, the actress has another reason to celebrate. The French Government has decided to honor Ash with the Knight Of The Order Of Arts And Letters (Chevalier dans l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres) for her contribution to the world of cinema and the development of Indo-French relations.
This honor, however, was bestowed upon her in 2008 but she was unable to receive it in person because of her father’s illness. This time, Aishwarya will receive the award in Delhi by Jerome Bonnafont the France Ambassador to India on the eve of the French National Day on July 14. Both the Bachchan family and Aishwarya’s maternal family will be present at the occasion.
