Aishwarya Rai Bachchan will forever be remembered as the first Indian actor to truly make a mark on the global stage, and for her contribution to films and gaining international recognition, she’ll be conferred with the Meryl Streep Award, which is granted to an actress for their exceptional work in cinema. The award will be bestowed on her on 8th September 2018 in Washington at the WIFT Gala, which is hosted by the Washington DC South Asian Film Festival (DCSAFF).
The DCSAFF is one-of-the-most-prestigious film festivals in the world, and is regularly attended by some of Hollywood’s biggest names. Along with the renowned guests who attend it, the previous recipients of the award boast the who’s who of Hollywood, including Elizabeth Taylor, Jane Fonda, Nicole Kidman, Cate Blanchett, Sandra Bullock, and Meryl Streep herself.
Meryl Streep is considered by several eminent film critics and many movie-buffs to be among the best, if not best actress ever in all of world cinema, and is the recipient of umpteen global awards, including holding the record for the most Academy Award nominations (21) – male of female – having won the Oscar on three occasions. Congratulations to Aishwarya for receiving such a huge honor.
