For Bollywood in Cannes, there’s life beyond Aishwarya Rai, Sonam Kapoor


Aishwarya Rai Bachchan walked the Cannes red carpet in an embellished couture gown while Sonam Kapoor will attend the festival tomorrow.

As the Indian contingent at the 69th Cannes Film Festival welcomes Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan and Sonam Kapoor, other B-town stars are doing their bit in and around the Palais des Festivals.

Aishwarya walked the Cannes red carpet in an embellished couture gown by Kuwait’s designer Ali Younes while Sonam will attend the festival tomorrow. Both are brand ambassadors of French cosmetics giant L’Oreal.

Shahana Goswami, part of the cast of Tu Hai Mera Sunday, which is set for a Marche du Film (Cannes Film Market) screening later in the week, is already here.

Shahana turned up for the opening film of Directors’ Fortnight, Marco Bellocchio’s well-received “Sweet Dreams”, on May 12.

The actress also put in an appearance at the Palais on Friday morning in support of the market screening of “Force of Destiny”, directed by Australia’s best-known arthouse filmmaker Paul Cox.

Shahana plays a key role in the film, which is a fictionalized exploration of the director’s brush with cancer and an agonizing wait for a life-saving liver transplant.
