Aishwarya makes solo appearance at amfAR event sans hubby

Unlike every year this year Abhishek Bachchan failed to escort his beautiful wife Aishwarya Rai Bachchan to the annual amfAR Cinema against AIDS and therefore Ash had to make a solo appearance. Abhishek tweeted that due to prior commitments, he could not make to the event, “Unfortunately due to work commitments I can’t attend the AMFAR gala today. But the better half is there to represent,” Abhishek tweeted.

Aishwarya looks ravishing in an off shoulder pale violet evening dress by Elie Saab and teamed with matching eye shadow. She opted for nude lip color and a diamond neckpiece and matching earrings added to her beauty.

The event was held at the famous Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc where she shared dais with Hollywood celebrities like Irina Shayk, Toni Garrn, Doutzen Kroes and Laura Stone, ‘Desperate Housewives’ star Eva Longoria, Spanish actor Antonio Banderas, British actress Sienna Miller and French star Marion Cotillard among others.

This year Cannes was special for Ash because apart from representing L’Oreal, she unveiled her comeback film, ‘Jazbaa’ along with director Sanjay Gupta and Aishwarya is thankful to see the response.

“I am just thankful and it feels great that audience are showing interest in my film,” Aishwarya Rai, who is at the 68th Cannes International Film Festival as an Indian ambassador for global cosmetic brand L’Oreal Paris.

“It was fun and I was very happy to see that film is making buzz not only in India, but here at Cannes as well. Presonally, I am not on social media but I am for sometime for L’Oreal and I saw it was trending at No. 1 in India.  

It was definitely being recognised. Even in the interactions here (at Cannes), everyone was like ‘Jazbaa’ has become topical and is creating buzz,” she added.

“As artists, we always want that people come and watch our film and appreciate it. We have worked hard and it’s wonderful that people have appreciated the first look”, concludes the actress.
