Mumbai:  Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's much awaited public appearance may happen on this Thursday as she is slated to attend the French National Day celebrations in Mumbai.

From the time father-in-law Amitabh Bachchan announced that his ‘bahu’ is pregnant, Ash has been maintaining a low profile and she hasn't been seen in public except in a multiplex in Juhu last week.

The National Day of France also known as Bastille Day is celebrated every year on July 14.The French Embassy this year is hosting an event at a South Mumbai hotel and according to sources the Bachchan bahu is definitely going to attend it.

The actress's presence at the evening is ensured by the fact that an international French brand she has been an ambassador for over a decade now, is part of the evening's sponsor list.

As part of the celebrations, designers Rahul Mishra, Nachiket Barve and Narendra Kumar are designing costumes inspired by the French flag.

Nachiket Barve for whom Aishwarya has been a muse, is making a garment embodying the spirit of France using its national colours of red, white and blue. So is he also creating something special for Ash for that day?

Nachiket says, "She has sported my garments in the past and it's always a pleasure to dress her up. Her presence in itself is great attraction to the evening."
