Did you know? Tulips in Netherlands were named after the beautiful Aishwarya Rai!

Her radiant smile has enchanted millions across the world. Aishwarya Rai comes from a very humble background and is now living a life that she would never have imagined. Her achievements are endless & her celebrity status is known all across the world. From winning one of the most prestigious beauty pageant awards to becoming an awesome mom, yes she’s done it all!  

Her huge fan base has people from all parts of the world, and one such place that surprised everybody was the Netherlands. Back in 2005, Aishwarya Rai was adjudged one of the most beautiful women in the world and the Netherlands decided to honour her by naming a variety of exotic tulip flower after her.

Hans van Driem, Managing Director of Netherlands tourism board inaugurated the ceremony along with Aishwarya Rai and said that tulips were a celebration of her beauty.

It’s always an honour to be named after a flower!
