Following a private gathering in Goa, the Ambanis threw a grand party to celebrate the engagement of Akash Ambani and Shloka Mehta at their residence, Antilia.

And obviously, it was a star-studded affair, with celebs like Shah Rukh Khan, Karan Johar, John Abraham, Katrina Kaif, Aishwarya Rai in attendance. And you wouldn't have missed the latter's pretty 6 year old, who looked like a complete princess, accompanying her. 

Aaradhya Bachchan is probably used to getting clicked by the shutterbugs now, and never shies away from striking a pose for them. How many of you were surprised to catch her with Aishwarya at the party? Well, don't be as there's a reason behind this special guest being invited to the celebration as well! 

As per an exclusive report by Pinkvilla, a guest from the engagement party answered the query about the little one's presence at an apparently adult party on a "school night". 

"There were other children invited too and what only a handful know is that it was Nita Ambani who specifically invited Aaradhya to the party. Imagine how many people are lucky to get invited to the Ambanis party! When Nita called to personally invite Ash, Nita requested the actress to get Aaradhya too because a small ballet was being presented by some young children at the party. She told Aishwarya that she wanted Aaradhya to enjoy the ballet as the child’s school was closed anyway for spring. Who better than Nita to know that as she’s the Founder and Chairperson of the same school (Dhirubhai Ambani International School in Mumbai) that Aaradhya goes to. She would hardly invite the little girl on a school night for an adult party. Also, Nita’s mother Kokilaben is extremely fond of Aaradhya and always gives her extra stuff like toffee and candies whenever they meet."

In fact, this is the same dress that Aaradhya wore to the Cannes Film Festival when she accompanied her mother.

And she was looking every bit the daughter of a Miss World, we can safely say!
