Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, and fellow actor Akshay Kumar received their Padma Shri Awards yesterday. The awards were given away by President of India Pratibha Patil at a function organized at the Rashtrapati Bhavan.
Interestingly, the Bachchan Khandaan has now 5 “Padma Shri Awards” to their name. The first Bachchan to receive the highest civilian honor in India was Sh. Harivansh Rai Bachchan. A few decades later his son Amitabh Bachchan won the same honor for his contribution to Indian films, art and culture. A few years later, the Big B was awarded with the same honor once again. Not to be left behind, Jaya Bachchan has also won the award for her contribution to our culture and Hindi cinema. And now his lovely bahu, the beautiful Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has rewritten history by winning the same award.
5 Padma Shri Awards in one family! Just imagine the kind of pressure that Ash and Abhi’s children would live in. Talking of Abhishek Bachchan, he is the only Bachchan not to have won the award. He must feel like the odd man out, no? Odd or not, but the junior Bachchan is looking very hot these days. With a complete makeover for Mani Ratnam’s “Ravana”, Abhishek is looking better than ever!
So ladies, watch out for the latest on the hunk charts. Move aside Hritik. Make way Shahrukh. Abhishek Bachchan is here!
