Francois Richier, ambassador of France to India, conferred the honour of prestigious ‘Knight of the Order of Arts and Letters’ on her at a hotel here.
On receiving the award, Aishwarya said: “I want to thank the French government for honouring me with the award. It’s truly overwhelming. I thank you in all humility.”
The entire Bachchan family, except Jaya Bachchan, were present at the event. Aishwarya’s daughter Aradhaya was also there.
Aishwarya turned 39 Thursday, so a cake cutting ceremony was also organised for her.
