Weighty issues force Aishwarya to skip Cannes?

Zeenews Bureau

Mumbai: All those who were waiting for a glimpse of Aishwarya Rai’s daughter at the Cannes Film Festival this year would have to bite dust yet again.

Buzz has it that Ash might not attend Cannes Film Festival that is to be held from May 16.

While reasons of her backing out from the prestigious event may vary from work commitments to taking care of her baby, strong rumour doing the rounds suggest that she is skipping the annual event because of her weight.

Ash gained `oodles of weight` after the birth of her daughter and when she was spotted in a fat avatar recently at an event, the pictures set off a buzz on the internet and social media.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has been a regular at Cannes ever since she paved the way for Bollywood to be highlighted at international forums. And it was reported earlier that Ash would attend the event in the company of her 5-month old daughter.

Cannes Film fest holds a reputation of showcasing the best of the movies along with some avant garde fashion displayed by guests who attend the event. And, given Ash’s current shape, her withdrawal from the event doesn’t seem like a bad idea.
