Aishwarya Rai Bachchan left for Cannes on Thursday with daughter Aaradhya and mother Brinda Rai. The Bollywood actor would be making an appearance on the Cannes red carpet for the 15th successive year, on May 13 and 14.
The actor, who is juggling a tight schedule this year, said before leaving that the Cannes appearances “mean a lot” to her. “Even when it is not about my film, I so often end up speaking about whatever films of ours are getting showcased or represented there. I am very humbled and privileged that I am given that opportunity to speak for us (Indians) because we are not individuals when we stand on a global platform. You represent us Indians and our fraternity. That means a lot. So every such experience is humbling, precious and means the world,” she told Indian Express.
Twinning with daughter Aaradhya in a black-and-white outfit, Aishwarya looked relaxed. That is the attitude she has adopted in regards to her Cannes dress as well. In a candid conversation with her fans earlier, the actress had shared that she was busy with the work of her forthcoming film Sarbjit, and hence could not pick out a dress. She said: “Cannes Festival is two days away and I still don’t know what I am wearing. You guys can troll me as much as you want but the fact is I have just been too busy.”
The actor will not be attending AmfAR gala at Cannes this year because of her Sarbjit commitments. Sonam Kapoor will be representing cosmetic giant L’Oreal at the AIDS charity event instead.
