“A heartfelt thank you to all my well-wishers from India and all around the world, for being my inspiration and strength. God bless and all my love,” she wrote.

She also posted a few pictures in which she can be seen holding a trophy in her hand and her daughter and mother beside her.

The Fanney Khan actress also penned a message for six-year-old Aaradhya.

“You, my Aaradhya, complete me. Divine, blissful and eternal love,” Aishwarya captioned the photograph of her daughter.
