Abhishek took to Twitter to pen an emotional note for Aishwarya, “And the Mrs. is awarded the Meryl Streep award for excellence at WIFT. The little one gives her a congratulatory hug, and I look on (to the photo) a very proud husband!”
At the WIFT Awards, Aishwarya was spotted wearing a Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla creation, that was essentially a black gown with pleated tulle and gold embellishments. Aaradhya looked cute in a pink dress with a red floral headband.
At the event, Aishwarya dazzled in an Egyptian style attire, with a black and gold gown with tulle pleated in layers. She completed the look with minimal accessories including a gold bracelet.
Meryl Streep award is the first of a kind hosted by Women in Film and Television (WIFT) which basically aims at recognising women achieveres across the globe and give them a chance to shine in an industry that’s dominated by men. The reason why the award is name after Meryl Streep is because she’s considered to be an inspiration not just for her extraordinary body of work but also for her charitable endeavors.
Apart from Aishwarya, filmmaker Zoya Akhtar received the Wyler Award for Excellence in Direction, and Dhadak actor Janhvi Kapoor was also honoured with the WIFT Emerald Award. In photographs from the event, Janhvi, daughter of late actor Sridevi, was seen talking to Aishwarya. WIFT honours the best female talent in Bollywood and Hollywood.
On the work front, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan will reunite on screen after Mani Ratnam’s Raavan, with Sarvesh Mewara’s Gulab Jamun. The film will reportedly go on floors next year.
