Even as speculations abound whether actor Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan will be attending the Cannes Film Festival this year, a source close to the actor puts all rumours to rest and confirms that she will indeed be walking the red carpet at the international fest this year as well.
“Yes, Aishwarya will be going to Cannes this year,” says the insider. According to the source, her six-month-old daughter, Aradhya, is likely to travel with her and in all likelihood, she will also be accompanied by husband Abhishek Bachchan, apart from other family members. “We can’t confirm about Abhishek yet, but Aishwarya won’t travel without Aradhya for sure,” the source adds.
When contacted, corporate communications manager, Snehhal Chitneni of the cosmetic brand that Aishwarya will be representing at Cannes, too confirms the actor’s presence. “Yes, Aishwarya is slated to attend the festival and she has confirmed it too. In fact, this year the actor will have a bigger role to play as the brand ambassador,” she adds. It is slated to be Aishwarya’s 11th Cannes visit this year ever since she made her first appearance there. The actor is expected to walk the red carpet for two consecutive days, along with the international faces representing the brand.
