Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has been the talk of the town ever since her pregnancy became public. This was due to the controversy related to Madhur Bhandarkar’s film Heroine. Now, Aishwarya seems to be taking the center stage again, as she is all set to be honored with the prestigious Officer Dan Ordre Des Arts Et Des Lettres by the French Government in New Delhi tomorrow, thus becoming the first Asian actress and the youngest Indian to win the honor.
This distinction is bestowed upon people who have achieved immense recognition, because of their contribution in the fields of arts, culture or literature. The previous winners of this awards (which happens to be the second highest civilian award in France and an equivalent Padma Vibhushan), include the likes of Robert Redford, George Clooney, Meryl Streep and Shah Rukh Khan.
