Mumbai: Actress Aishwarya Rai, who is busy playing mother to her three-and-half-month-old daughter, says her mom Vrinda is responsible for whatever she is today.
"She is the nucleus of my existence; who has gently moulded me, shaped me, picked me up when I`ve been down, has faith in me and taught me to be the very best version of me that I can be," Aishwarya said in a statement.
The former beauty queen acknowledged her mother with a special award of `She`s Worth It` at the L`Oreal Paris Femina Awards 2012 recently.
Aishwarya was herself honoured with `The Iconic Woman of Worth` award at the event. She looked resplendent in an Abu Jani-Sandeep Khosla ensemble.
