Bollywood actress Sonali Bendre, married to producer Goldie Behl who is a very close friend of Abhishek Bachchan, says Aishwarya Rai will always be family to her.
'Aishwarya is family. She is Abhishek's wife and will always be extremely special. Like I keep telling her that she is extremely sweet but for us she will always be Abhishek's wife who is so dear and I think she is very happy to accept that,' said Sonali.
The actress, who was last seen in Karan Johar's 2003 hit 'Kal Ho Naa Ho', will soon be seen as a judge on a new reality show 'India's Got Talent'.
