Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, who will be completing 15 years of going to the Cannes Film Festival this year, has not picked out a dress for the outing and is not bothered about fashion police as well. She challengingly says, “You guys can troll me as much as you want but I have been busy.”
In a candid conversation on #fame - live video social platform, the actress 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 actress, who is the brand ambassador of L’Oréal Paris, will represent the cosmetic giant at Cannes. The Cannes Film Festival commenced on Thursday and will go on till May 21. The actress will walk the red carpet on May 13 and 14.
The Cannes Film Festival is not all about cinema, but fashion and beauty trends as well. The actress has had her share of failures on the fashion front but in recent times she has been earning plaudits for her style.
When asked about her daughter Aaradhya’s reaction to the Sarbjit trailer, she said: “She realised I looked very different, so I tried to make a joke about it and told her it’s like playing dress up.”
Sarbjit is based on the life of Indian farmer Sarabjit Singh, who strayed into Pakistan, was convicted of terrorism and spying in Pakistan and sentenced to death.
During another interview, the actor also expressed gratitude to Prime Minister Narendra Modi. She said that what Modi has been doing for the country is not an easy job. She also said that whatever he is doing is for the well being of the nation and its people.
Asked if she would like to start her political career from Uttar Pradesh, she made it clear that her platter is full - she is a good mom, a good daughter, a good wife as well as a responsible citizen of the country. The actress, who is married to actor Abhishek Bachchan, is very content with her job.
Although she didn’t make it clear that she wouldn’t enter politics, she did not affirm it either. She also said that the question is just an estimate of possibilities.
With regard to a question about the new destiny of her life, she gave quite a philosophical answer. She said that she is not living her life with the purpose of achieving a destiny. The “Devdas” actress added that life is just a journey and there are ups and downs.
