In a very emotional event Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was moved to tears. It could not be cleared if it was really the hustle and bustle of media (which she is very much used to) or something else was occupying her mind that brought tears in her eyes.

It was birth anniversary of the illustrious Bollywood actress’ late father Krishnaraj Rai and she chose a unique way to commemorate this event by sponsoring surgeries of 100 kids born with cleft lips and palates. She also named this day as Day of Smiles.
The moment the former Miss World entered the hall, she was annoyed of the noise all around, so she hushed the paparazzis. She requested them to respect the sanctity of hospital and keep quite.
“We’re here for a good cause in the hospital. Please, let’s respect that. Keep volume down (as) we are in a very small room. And next they are going to bring in children here. There is one child already (pointing towards her daughter standing with her). Let’s be a bit calm, okay?
“We are here. We’re not going anywhere. You will get your photographs. You will get what you want to take. Okay? … with patience please. Thank you,” she said a bit satisfactarily as the voices died down.
Then again, when the affected kids started gathering around her for pictures, the noises erupted again.
“We are accustomed to all this. We belong to this business, but they are not. Please, show some respect. Please. They do not know our world. It’s not a (film) premier. This is not another public event. Please, show some respect guys,” she said trying to minimise the loud chatter among photographers.
And then once again, when she was about to cut cake, she just freaked out and shouted at reporters, “I say stop it.” And with that her eyes got filled with tears.
Aishwarya does not only support cleft lips cause in India but worldwide. Ms Rai Bachchan, hailed by many as the most beautiful woman in the world, is Smile Train’s Goodwill Ambassador. As Goodwill Ambassador, she will actively work to help Smile Train provide free cleft surgery to children in 76 developing countries around the world, including India.
