Less than a month to go and the world’s most beautiful lady, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan will be seen walking the red carpet at the Cannes film festival. This will be her 10th consecutive year at the French Riviera.
“I didn’t realise I was so close to completing a decade till someone pointed out to me last year, that I’d been coming to the fest for nine years. Abhishek wondered if any other celebrity had enjoyed such a long, straight run at Cannes,” said the lovely actress.
In the year 2003, Ash not only became the first Indian actor to be on the Cannes jury, She also became the global brand ambassador of L’Oreal, alongside Andie Macdowell, Eva Longoria and Penelope Cruz.
“People remember the Miss World title even after 17 years. Among my films, the most-watched are Devdas (2002) and Bride & Prejudice (2003),” says Aishwarya, who is all set to make her appearance in Cannes as the L’Oreal’s international face, despite rumours of being replaced.
“It’s been almost a decade-long association with L’Oreal, and a 12-year tenure with Longines. There’s a lot of love there, and when the time comes, I know the parting will be good. For now, the tenure continues,” said Ash.
This year, while Ash is on a break for whatever reasons, Abhishek is busy with shoots. However, Abhi is trying to work out his dates so they can make one more “together” appearance at Cannes.
