Actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan got emotional as the national anthem was played at an event she attended recently. She was present at the IMC WE Exhibition 2018 along with some other Bollywood celebs such as Shabana Azmi and Sonu Nigam. A video is doing the rounds on social media in which the lady can be seen standing proud for the national anthem, visibly teary-eyed. She even tried to rub off a drop to hide her emotions. All her actions were caught on the camera.

The actress is going to be honoured with the inaugural Meryl Streep Award for Excellence at the first Women in Film and Festival (WIFT) India Award. The ceremony will be held in Washington DC on September 8.

Apart from Aish, filmmaker Zoya Akhtar, who has directed films like Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara and Dil Dhadakne Do, will also be conferred with the Wyler Award for Excellence in Direction. Late actress Sridevi’s daughter, Janhvi Kapoor, who made her debut with Shashank Khaitan’s Dhadak, set to be honoured with the WIFT Emerald Award.

On the work front, Aishwarya was last seen in Fanney Khan, alongside Rajkummar Rao and Anil Kapoor. The movie couldn’t do wonders at the Box Office. She will next be seen sharing the screen space with Abhishek Bachchan in Anurag Kashyap’s Gulab Jamun.
