Aishwarya to go solo at Cannes Festival this year
New Delhi: After four years of marriage and an equal number of headline grabbing appearances on the French Riviera, Aishwarya Rai will be going solo at the Cannes red carpet this time, thanks to husband Abhishek Bachchan`s packed schedule.
The Bollywood beauty won`t have Abhishek on her arm this time around as he will be busy shooting in Russia.
"I can`t go this year to Cannes with Aishwarya. We were there together last year to promote `Raavan`. But this year I will be shooting in Russia that time," Abhishek told PTI.
This will be the actress` tenth consecutive Cannes outing and Abhishek is proud of the achievement.
"I am very proud of her. I think she is the only Indian actress to have that," said the 35-year-old actor.
The couple made their debut at the coveted film festival in 2007, while Aishwarya`s first appearance was in 2002 with her `Devdas` co-star Shah Rukh Khan.
