Cannes: Aishwarya Rai creates stir with purple lips at ‘Sarabjit’ premiere


Aishwarya Rai Bachchan who stunned twice in golden gowns at the Cannes red carpet on May 13 and 14, and a red outfit for the press interactions, created the most stir on Sunday, May 15 when she attended the premiere of ‘Sarabjit’.

The actress wore a beautiful peach gown with purple floral embellishments by Lebanese-American designer Rami Kadi. But her make-up choices grabbed the most attention. Aishwarya sported a bold purple lips, gave her eyes a smoky look and tied her hair into a pony tail. She did away with any jewellery item, apart from a ring on each hand.

The former Miss World posed for the shutterbugs with her ‘Sarabjit’ team, including director Omung Kumar, co-star Richa Chadda and producers Bhushan Kumar, Jackky Bhagnan and his sister Deepshika Deshmukh.

Before walking the red carpet, the ‘Jazbaa’ actress stepped out for the press meet of her upcoming film in a black-and-gold creation by Rohil Bal.

‘Sarabjit’ also starring Randeep Hooda in the title role is a real story about a sister’s struggle for getting justice for her brother who is wrongly convicted of terrorism and imprisoned in a Pakistani jail. The movie is slated to hit screens on May 20.

As such, Aishwarya, who has been a regular at the at the amfAR 'Cinema Against AIDS' fundraiser, will skip the charity event this year. Her L’Oreal co-ambassador Sonam Kapoor will fill in for her at the event to be held on May 19.
