Wearing a shimmering silver Roberto Cavalli gown, Aishwarya, 41, who won the crown in 1994, was joined on stage by her husband actor Abhishek Bachchan, mother Vrinda Rai and daughter Aaradhya as she received the honour.
“I stand here overwhelmed by this honour. I thank the Miss World Organisation for such an incredible honour that I have received.
“To have the opportunity to hold the title, to wear the crown with pride, that was my one time to go out there and experience beauty with a purpose,” Aishwarya said.
Abhishek tweeted “The Mrs gets awarded by Miss World as their most successful and impactful Miss World. Honoured. She got the award, I got to hold little A (Aaradhya). I got the better deal.” – From Press Trust India
