Aishwarya was supposed to attend the gala with Abhishek Bachchan, for every years the couple host the gala at the Cannes Film Festival, but this hubby missed the plane for he was help up with work.
Late in the night, he tweeted, "Unfortunately due to work commitments I can't attend the AMFAR gala today. But the better half is there to represent."
Nevertheless, Aishwarya looked even more beautiful sans her hubby. She was dressed in a embellished lavender gown with diamond jewellery. The disappointing factor for the fashion critics was her hairdo, for pretty much all her appearances at the Cannes Film Festival this year, Aish was seen sporting the same hairstyle.
Fans would have loved her more, had she dared to experiment a little. Aishwarya being a pro at hosting the amFAR gala, did a fab job this year as well.
Aishwarya Rai's daughter, Aaradhya did not make a red carpet appearance as we all hoped for. Don't be disappointed though, check out the world's most beautiful girl, Aishwarya and your worries will go away.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan looks fabulous in this lavender gown, the actress looks so stunning that she takes my breath away.
Talking To Media
She told, "It's interesting to see how Sanjay Gupta is going to tell the story."
Yeah, the viewers are curious too.
"I feel I never went anywhere but it will be perceived as my comeback film. I had a chosen a Mani Ratnam film earlier but because of technical reasons he told me he is revisiting it. Now, Jazbaa will be that first film. It is a strong subject. It is not a stereotypical film. It is a great story," Aishwarya said.
"I feel the pressure is on Sanjay. After seeing the overwhelming response Sanjay says it is a reminder that the film has to be good. There is a certain language, edit pattern, cinematic language that Sanjay has," Aishwarya said.
"It is about a single mother, a lawyer, whose daughter who gets kidnapped. People perceive it as serious film and woman oriented. It might go that way. But it is interesting to see how he is going to tell the story. I am happy, curious and excited to see Sanjay's Jazbaa," she said.
On Her Cannes Experience
"These experiences are lovely each time. I had come here for Devdas, then on jury, being a brand ambassador, then I got married and I came back, then after Aaradhya was born I came here," she added.
