Rani Mukerji honoured by the American Embassy at a swish inaugural ball

The Aiyyaa star was felicitated by the US embassy for contribution to Indian cinema, on a day when the 44th President of the United States of America was sworn in

It seems that with the trend of various countries honouring our Bollywood superstars fast catching up, the American Embassy too did not want to be left far behind as it felicitated the Aiyyaa superstar Rani Mukerji at an event.

What made the do special was the fact that the 44th President of America, Barack Obama was sworn in on the same day. The Embassy officials said that our own Rani was a very special person and held her contribution to Indian cinema in high regard. An ecstatic Rani, looking elegant in a black saree with exquisite gold embroidery, was quite humble, forthcoming and happy about the fact that she was being recognised and honoured for her acting. The NGO Namaste America co-hosted the event along with the American Embassy!

Well, we sure are happy for you Rani! Considering that you won more brickbats than accolades this awards season, this one would sure mean a lot… wink wink!
