In a recent event, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan gets teary-eyed while remembering her father, says he was all about spreading smiles.

Last year, the actress lost her father Krishna Raj Rai on March 16. Aishwarya, who endorses Smile Train Foundation – an organisation which provides free cleft surgery to kids, was called to address the crowd for a promotional event. 

She wore a Manish Malhotra desi attire, a shimmery ivory Anarkali with fine embroidery detailing. Styled by celebrity stylist, Tanya Ghavri, Ash looked graceful in this attire. For her makeup, the star opted for dark smokey eyes and nude lips. With soft rolled hair, we just can't get our eyes off this beauty.

During the event, the actress spoke about the beautiful initiative run by this foundation but the moment she remembered her dad, she couldn’t hold back her tears. She paused, took a deep breath and struggled to complete her sentences that had any reference to her late father.



The actress also spoke about her family’s participation in the initiative. “My parents and my daughter, albeit very early in her life, has gotten introduced to the work we do together on Simile Train. I’m so thankful to God that I’ve been able to share the experience and get them to recognise and get them to participate in such effective work with children.”


On the professional front, Aishwarya will next be seen in ‘Fanne Khan’, which also stars Anil Kapoor, Rajkummar Rao, among others.
