Abhishek too busy for Aishwarya

Abhishek Bachchan won't be accompanying his dearest wife Aishwarya Rai Bachchan to the Cannes film festival and all this is for his hectic shooting schedule. This is Aishwarya’s 10th consecutive Cannes visit and after marriage, this will be the first time that Ash will be attending Cannes festival sans Abhishek. After marriage, she never attended the event without her hubby. Abhishek accompanied her every time but this time the lady had to move solo since at that period Abhi will be busy shooting in Russia.

"I can`t go this year to Cannes with Aishwarya. We were there together last year to promote `Raavan`. But this year I will be shooting in Russia that time," Abhishek said.

This is Ash’s 10th consecutive visit to Cannes and Abhishek is proud of Aishwarya.

"I am very proud of her. I think she is the only Indian actress to have that," said the 35-year-old actor. In  2007, the duo walked the red carpet together holding each other’s hand while Aishwarya`s first made appearance at the prestigious Cannes film festival was in 2002 with her ‘Devdas co-star Shahrukh Khan.
