Aishwariya Rai, who had already paved the way for putting India and South Asian culture on the global map long ago, is all to set to have a special part in the WIFT Award Gala in Washington on September 8.
The actor will be honored with the ‘Meryl Streep Award’ for her exceptional work and contribution to cinema. Not much has been revealed as the producers want everything to be announced exclusively on the WIFT Indian Award Night. What makes it more special is that she will be the first Indian to be the recipient of the prestigious award that honors excellence in cinema.
Previous Meryl Streep Award holders include the likes of Nicole Kidman, Elizabeth Taylor, Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett and Jane Fonda to name a few. Aishwariya is all set to make another International Red Carpet come back and let’s hope she brings her Cannes Red Carpet game in once again.
