The ever beautiful Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is evidently known for her grace and elegance. She has stolen many hearts since the time she was crowned Miss World.  There is no doubt that she is one of the most popular icons across the world owing to her international work and connects. Aishwarya was even awarded as the ‘Global Indian Icon' at Times Now-ICICI Bank NRI Awards and ‘Glamour Icon' at Hello Fame Awards.

Although she is the perfect choice for glamour icon, isn't there a possibility that Priyanka Chopra deserved the Global Indian Icon Award? After all, PeeCee has continuously made India proud with her Hollywood connection currently. From doing music videos with some big names, to being the lead in ‘Quantico' to being a presentator at the Oscars and now bagging a Hollywood film BAYWATCH alongside Dwayne Johnson, Priyanka has been the only icon this year.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, after receiving the award, recollected how her journey began from the stage where she was awarded. Said Aishwarya, "I would just like to thank everyone for humbling me with this felicitation. It is wonderful to be in the company of such incredible Indians who have done so well and remain connected to our roots and take pride in every vocation that they have chosen. This award took me down the memory lane because that was where I was introduced. Even though it was a beauty pageant, for me it meant representing India as a young woman internationally. Everyone has given me such love, blessings and good wishes and that's the reason I am what I am."
