Bollywood’s most beautiful actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, was recently spotted on the Red Carpet of the prestigious Cannes Film Festival awards. The Diva was attending the event as a global ambassador for L’Oreal, which is the sponsor of the Cannes Film Festival. The Bachchan bahu has been a part of it over fifteen years in a row now.
However, this year the event was more special as the first look of Aishwarya’s upcoming film ‘Jazbaa’ was to be unveiled at Cannes. But Aishwarya who was supposed to attend ‘Jazbaa’ promotional event at Indian Pavilion, but was refused entry by the gate security at the venue.
Satish Reddy, MD of World News Network said, “The security personnel didn’t allow Aishwarya the access to the Indian Pavilion because she was not in possession of the mandatory Blue Pass. Aishwarya and the whole Jazbaa team, director Sanjay Gupta and co-producer Sachin Joshi had to wait 20 or more minutes at the gate. Apparently, the confusion occurred due to the negligence of the promoters of the event.”
The Indian Embassy Protocol Officer Satyapaul said, “The car in which Mrs Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was seated had no Blue Permission sticker that gives admission to the guests in the pavilion. They were barred on the gates. We had to rush and convince the chief security officer. It took us inside an hour to convince that Mrs Bachchan was a global celebrity. Even though the security chief on the pretext of we who will handle the police in case of double check granted a verbal permission. Finally all went on well. It is the work of organizers to get the permissions in place. In this case I extended my support because she is an Indian primarily who apparently is also the pride of our country and also the guest in our Indian Pavilion. It makes me proud.”
An infuriated Aishwarya Rai, was seen leaving the venue soon after her official commitments were through.
