In 2009, Aishwarya was honored with the Padma Shri by the government. At the height of her acting career, Aishwarya, then 36, spoke about the honor and how the Bachchan family made it all the more special. The actor also shared her reaction to being the youngest person from Bollywood to receive the Padma Shri, the country’s fourth highest civilian award awarded by the government.

Aishwarya said the “most precious thing that happened in 2009” was her late father’s recovery from cancer. People of the fraternity said you are the youngest in the industry to receive it yet. I owe it to my parents and I dedicate it to them. It was very special when my in-laws said we could welcome the fifth Padma Shri into the family.”

Aishwarya also yelled at Abhishek Bachchan for standing by her from one public platform after another and applauding her. She had said, “I have been blessed with the best husband in the world because it reflects in his strength that he can stand by his wife on a public stage and cheer her on at every opportunity.”
