Cannes,Aishwarya Rai Bachchan made an appearance at the 71st Cannes Film Festival in a shimmery off-shoulder Rami Kadi couture gown that reportedly had 20,000 Swarovski stones.
Addressed as the most beautiful woman her appearances are constantly being judged. However, the actress strongly believes that women need to stop judging each other.“Shringaar is a part of who you are as a woman or a man. It’s an individual choice and women need to stop judging each other. If you do a lot of shringaar that doesn’t mean you lack substance,” she said.
When asked, being an actor how does she deal with the criticism, Aishwarya replied, “That is different, that is part of being on the public platform. One should not be judgmental on a day-to-day basis, in life generally.
“Talking about comments, there can be immense praise or criticism which comes with being a celebrity. That is fine and it goes with the turf. I don’t disrespect it, but at the same time iit doesn’t affect me,” said the 44-year-old.
While in this frivolous industry where people judge one based only on their looks, the former beauty queen has proved otherwise.
“I became Miss World very early in my life and people got to know who I am through my interviews and I thank media for that. But yes, I have to confess there are times when journalists themselves after watching my film, maybe a couple of months later have reseen the film and said the first time we were just watching you,” Aish said.
“Look at the talent I am working with, look at the filmmakers. Would they ever go with the physicality? No. I don’t think they want to risk their reputation,” she added.
A doting mother, Aishwarya has always had her daughter Aaradhya by her side at the Cannes. And having made a debut on Instagram just two days back, the mother-daughter duo have been posting some adorable pictures.
