Oprah drapes sari to meet Ash, Beti B
Mumbai: International talk show queen Oprah Winfrey chose to go truly Indian on her maiden India visit as she draped an orange and golden sari as she went to meet Bollywood star Aishwarya Rai and her newborn, nicknamed Beti B, here Monday night.
Winfrey, who hosted Aishwarya and Abhishek on her popular talk show in 2009, arrived here Monday.
If sources are to be believed, meeting Beti B, who was born Nov 14 last year, was among the first things Winfrey wanted to do upon her arrival.
So, even before heading for a private party organised in her honour at socialite Parmeshwar Godrej`s residence, Winfrey decided to make a trip to the Bachchan residence to meet Ash and the baby at their residence Jalsa in Juhu.
The media parked outside Jalsa could only catch a glimpse of the 57-year-old as she entered the house around 8.15 p.m. She kept to the traditional look by teaming up her sari with golden bangles.
Winfrey left the house around 9.30 p.m. and that too in a car, driven by megastar Amitabh Bachchan. Abhishek sat beside his father in the front seat, while Aishwarya and Winfrey sat behind.
The media mogul is in India to shoot for her new show "Next Chapter", which will see Winfrey travelling around the world and interviewing celebrities. She is scheduled to attend the forthcoming Jaipur Literature Festival.
