Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was honoured with the inaugural Meryl Streep Award for Excellence at the first Women in Film and Television India Awards held in Washington DC.

She was accompanied to the event by her daughter Aaradhya and mother Brinda Rai.

Aishwarya opted for Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla creation – a black gown with pleated tulle and gold embellishments. Aaradhya, on the other hand, looked cute in a pink dress with a red floral headband.
