Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai drew thousands of fans in Kochi while she was there to inaugurate a jewellery store.
This was her first public appearance after the delivery of her daughter in November last year.
The former beauty queen was in Kochi Sunday for the launch of the first Kalyan Jewellers store, and several fans had lined up along the roads leading to the store.
Aishwarya, who shot her first post-pregnancy ad for the brand, addressed the fans from atop a special stage, before she went ahead with the formalities of the launch of the store.
She was accompanied by her mother Vrinda Rai and daughter Aaradhya on the trip.
