This is one lifetime moment which we are sure Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is never going to forget. Recently she was called upon to bestow the prestigious Longines Prize for Elegance award to retired former World No. 1 Brazilian Tennis player Gustavo Kuerten. At the event, which took place in France last week, Kuerten received the award for his work for the betterment of disadvantaged children. Aishwarya, it seems, was very much impressed by his contribution to such a noble cause.
A charity dinner was held as well, which saw the Indian beauty bond with two legendary female Tennis players: Mary Pierce and Stefi Graf. Also present was career Golden Slam winner Andre Agassi, who like his wife (Stefi Graf) and Aishwarya, is the Longines Ambassador of Elegance. Sources say that Pierce was so happy to meet Aishwarya that she extended an invitation to Ash to visit her Mauritius located villa. Ash it seems was touched and accepted the invite.
In addition to presenting the award and completing a photo shoot, Ash also managed to attend some Tennis matches at Roland Garros. This pretty lady sure knows how to mix business with pleasure!
