Why is Rajni sulking now? She claims that Vikram Motwane, the director of Udaan, is a bit surprised by Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. Ab kya hua, I wonder and she tells me that she declined his request to attend the screening of his movie at the ongoing Cannes Film Festival.
Tell me about it, I order, and she explains that Ash was buddy buddy with Motwane when he assisted Sanjay Leela Bhansali during Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam and Devdas. And considering the rapport they shared, he went to invite her for the screening of his directorial debut that was selected in the category, Uncertain Regard, on May 19.
But it seems she refused, saying that she was flying back to Mumbai and couldn’t postpone her flight due to prior commitments for Mani Ratnam’s Raavan. Rajni heard it from a canary at Cannes that Motwane was dejected about Ash not making it to his film’s screening. Really now!
