Aishwarya Rai confirms that she’s been invited and will be attending it too. “She has received an invite for the event and she will be attending it,” says a spokesperson for Ash.

“She has received an invitation from the (Karnataka) CM’s office. But Aishwarya has just come back from Los Angeles. Since she was away, she couldn’t give a confirmation regarding her attending the event,” the spokesperson adds.

Meanwhile, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan presented awards to the winners of the Lavasa Women’s Drive at a glittering ceremony on Friday

As per the information, the event has already met with a few protests because Narayana Murthy was inaugurating it. The protest has been made from rebel writer and Kannada film director Prof Baraguru Ramachandrappa. He said that the Infosys Chairman is not the right person to inaugurate the event as his contribution is not that great and not an appropriate personality.
