Aishwarya Rai Bachchan to be bestowed with Meryl Streep Award for Excellence
Speaking about the award named after veteran Hollywood actor Meryl Streep, WIFT India founding president Petrina D'Rozario said, "Whether it is her extraordinary body of work or her charitable endeavors, Ms. Streep is an inspiration for all."
"Our aim here is to encourage others to think outside the norm of gender-based hiring practices and give females of all nationalities an equal chance to vie in fields dominated by men," she elaborated.
Apart from Aishwarya, director Zoya Akhtar and 'Dhadak' star Janhvi Kapoor, among others, will also be honoured at the event.
WIFT India is part of WIFT International, a network which promotes professional development and achievement for women in the film industry, video, and other screen-based media.
