Bollywood diva Aishwarya Rai Bachchan made a show-stopping appearance in a red Anarkali suit during the inauguration of Kalyan Jewellers showroom in Ludhiana, Punjab, on Sunday.

The 39-year-old actress, who is also the brand ambassador of the jewellery group, inaugurated the 52nd showroom of Kalyan Jewellers in the presence of Honorable Mayor of Ludhiana Shri Harcharan Singh Gohalwaria, Shri T.S.Kalyanaraman, CMD - Kalyan Jewellers and Executive Directors Rajesh Kalyanaraman and Ramesh Kalyanaraman.

According to the Kalyan Jewellers official website, the recently opened showroom is the biggest in Ludhiana with a carpet area of over 12,000 sq feet in three floors.

The actress, often referred to as "one of the most beautiful women in the world", arrived in Chandigarh on Saturday along with her daughter Aaradhya Bachchan. Next day she arrived in Ludhiana where thousands of her fans were waiting to catch a glimpse of the actress.

The actress opted for a traditional Anarkali for the inauguration of the showroom. She looked stunning in a red jade suit designed by Monica & Karishma and with minimal makeup. She topped her look with earrings and bangles by Kalyan and makeup by Mickey Contractor.

The former Miss World was apparently mobbed by thousands of fans, due to which she cancelled her media briefing after inaugurating the showroom and left the store disappointing her fans.

While chating with a Ludhiana Newsline, Aishwarya said, "This is my maiden visit to Ludhiana and I am overwhelmed seeing love of the people here."

"I am deeply obliged to be here. I really thank people for their love and support," she added.
