However, talking about her joy over receiving Padma Shri, Aishwarya mentioned that the feeling was 'wonderful'. She also added that she has been receiving comments that she is the first youngest person to bag such a prestigious award. 

She also dedicated the award to her parents and revealed how her in-laws reacted to such a win. Aishwarya said that her in-laws told her that they welcomed the 5th Padma Shri into their family. For those who don't know, Amitabh Bachchan's father, Harivansh Rai Bachchan, who was a Hindi poet, bagged the Padma Shri award in 1976, while Amitabh received three such prestigious awards. Jaya Bachchan received Padma Shri in the year 1992, and then Aishwarya was the next one to bring Padma Shri to the Bachchan clan. However, Aishwarya could be quoted as saying:

"Professionally what was wonderful was being bestowed with the Padma Shri. People from the fraternity said you are the youngest from the industry to have received it thus far. I owe it to my parents and I devote it to them. It was very special when my in-laws said we welcome the fifth Padma Shri into the family.”
