Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was not overtly concerned that she had not decided on a gown for her Cannes red carpet appearance three days before the event. Neither did she rush to Cannes days before she was supposed to walk down the Croisette. Before going, she dared the trolls too.
And then, the Bollywood actor switched on the goddess mode and delivered one of her most memorable appearances on the Cannes red carpet on Friday. As the design fraternity and fans applaud her fashion statement, we are raising a toast to the woman and her confidence.
Her relaxed videos and Instagram pictures moments before the red carpet walk prove how relaxed Aishwarya was. It is her 15th year at the prestigious film festival, and she wants to enjoy every moment of it.
Aishwarya had faced enough backlash over her post-pregnancy weight. It was at Cannes that she answered back her detractors with this style statement. Yes, she could lose the weight but she did it when she wanted to, she did it when her first priority – motherhood – gave her time for it.
In the same way, her graph at the film festival showed that haters gonna hate, hate and the actor’s gonna shake, shake. Everybody is allowed a bad day but not when you are the former Miss World turned Bollywood superstar walking down the red carpet in French riviera. She was beaten over her fashion faux pas. Every time, she emerged stronger.
And now, she has proved herself a veteran of the pose-and-walk routine. She holds her own when walking with stars from across the world. And she does it with love and style. Trolls? Who cares about trolls?
