Aishwarya Rai Bachchan missed the Mijwan 2015 event, but attended the investiture ceremony of the Padma Awards -- Padma Vibhusha, Padma Bhushan and Padma Shri -- which was held at Rashrapati Bhavan in Delhi on Wednesday morning.

President Pranab Mukherjee conferred Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan with Padma Vibhushan, the second highest civilian award, on Wednesday.

This is Big B's third Padma Awards, in 1989 he was honoured with Padma Shri and in 2001 he was honoured with Padma Bhushan for his contribution in the field of Indian cinema.

The entire Bachchan clan, including his wife Jaya, Abhishek, Aishwarya Rai, granddaughter Aaradhya, daughter Shweta Bachchan Nanda with husband Nikhil Nanda and grandchildren Navya and Agastya attended the ceremony in Delhi.

Abhishek also posted a photo of the invitation card of the investiture ceremony.

Last month Big B blogged about Bachchan family creating records with six Padma Awards in one family.

Big B's father Harivansh Rai Bachchan, Jaya Bachchan and daughter-in-law Aishwarya Rai Bachchan have received the prestigious awards in the past.

"..the President of India shall be presenting the Padma Awards on the 8th of April in Delhi at the Rashtrapati Bhavan.. my 6th visit for this prestigious ceremony –first for my Father when he received the Padma Bhushan, then for my own Padma Shri, then Padma Bhushan, for Jaya the Padma Shri, for Aishwarya's the Padma Shri, and now again for me the Padma Vibhushan," Big B said in his blog.

Meanwhile, the awards ceremony was attended by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and several union ministers. The complete lists of awards were revealed on the eve of this year's Republic Day.
