Aishwarya Rai joins Cannes
The latest buzz is that Aishwarya Rai is to join the Cannes International Film Festival that is going to happen this year. It is also been said that the Cannes Festival this year is a special one to India for reasons.
The reason is that the Indian Cinema is celebrating its hundredth year in the Cannes film Festival which is jointly celebrated by the French Government.On behalf of the French Government, Aishwarya Rai has been invited as the Guest of Honor to this prestigious Cannes Festival. We all remember the vent where the French Government honored Aishwarya Rai on her previous birthday, with the prestigious award that is usually been given to the Best Citizen of their country. Aishwarya Rai has been an active participant of the Cannes International film Festival.
French Ambassador Francois Richer said that, “With her active participation in the Cannes International Film Festival, Aishwarya Rai has become well acquainted with us. We have decided to focus more on the Indian Cinema in the forthcoming Festival. We have also made arrangements for inviting the iconic faces of the Indian cinema. Aishwarya Rai will also be honored as the Special Guest.”
The happy news for the Indians is that our Superstar Rajnikanth has graciously accepted to grace the occasion where his ‘Kochadaiyan‘ trailer is to be released. Another famous name in the Indian Cinema, Amitab Bachchan, is also to be present at the Cannes Festival for his first Hollywood film. Henceforth, this year, the Cannes festival is expected to be a real festival for the Indian cinema.
