The actress had recently confessed that she wants Sarbjit to premiere at the Cannes Film festival. "I do not know if the team will be able to make the opportunity possible on that platform as well because Cannes will be happening in the last week.''

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan further added, "Given the timeline, if it is possible, the team will look for the opportunity. But, however if there are too many deadlines to match regretfully, that chance may have to be cut off. We have to wait for the last 10 days to announce but that would have been the perfect platform to share the film. Somehow it is coinciding with the final week with Cannes".
The movie is directed by Omung Kumar. Sarbjit is based on Sarabjit Singh, an Indian farmer who was convicted of terrorism and spying in Pakistan, and was sentenced to death. He was attacked by inmates at a prison in Lahore in April 2013 and died a few days later.
