Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is all geared up for Cannes 2017. The actress was spotted leaving for Cannes at the Mumbai International Airport last night along with her daughter, Aaradhya Bachchan, while her husband Abhishek Bachchan was spotted dropping them off at the airport. She was photographed in a trench coat which she paired with blue denims. While Aaradhya was all smiles for the cameras. The tiny tot has accompanied her mother Aishwarya to the Cannes ever since she was born.
This will be Aishwarya’s 15th appearance at Cannes, the first time around was when she went to the prestigious film festival back in 2002 with her film Devdas, along with Shah Rukh Khan and Sanjay Leela Bhansali. Incidentally, she will be presenting Devdas yet again at Cannes 2017 on the big screen open to the public at the Martinez beach. That is what we call coming a full circle!
Reminiscing her debut appearance at Cannes, Aishwarya earlier told a news portal “They made the reception so wonderful by actually creating this little ride up in a horse carriage. Three of us went up and we truly felt like we were representing us. It just felt glorious from the first step on the red carpet.”
The actress will be walking down the red carpet on May 19th and 20th, representing the cosmetic brand L’Oreal as the brand ambassador, which she has been doing for the last 15 years. Meanwhile, Deepika Padukone has already made her first appearance on May 17 and is expected to be seen again today. Sonam Kapoor is scheduled to join the L’Oreal contingent later this week.
Last year Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, managed to create quite a stir with her purple lipstick. We cannot wait to see, what is in store for us this year.
