Cannes: Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai, who is here to attend the ongoing 67th Cannes International Film Festival, has made some new friends - she connected with Freida Pinto and Natasha Poly - on the first meeting.

While "Slumdog Millionaire" fame Freida is Hollywood-based Indian actress, Natasha is a Russian model.

The L`Oreal Paris ambassadors Aishwarya and Freida met at a special shoot for L`Oreal Paris at Cannes and both were excited.

"I have met Freida for the first time in person. All of us L`Oreal Paris spokespeople are so different, but each one of us is worth it," Aishwarya said in a statement.

Talking about Natasha, the "Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam" star said: "I met Natasha for the first time and she is a new mother, so we connected that way."

Aishwarya, who will walk the red carpet Tuesday and Wednesday, also has a daughter named Aradhya Bachchan with husband and actor Abhishek Bachchan.
