Bollywood diva Aishwarya Rai earned a place for herself in the record books by becoming the first woman to hoist the Indian National Flag at the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne (IFFM) in Australia. IFFM 2017 marks the celebration of 70th Year of the Indian Independence.

The Beauty Queen looked stunning in a floor-length Anarkali outfit. Standing beside her was none other than her adorable daughter Aaradhya who wore a white ghagra choli.

Aishwarya Rai thanked Melbourne for giving such a moment of pride and happiness to her. She claims celebrating 70th Independence Day will always be a beautiful memory for her and Aaradhya.
