Mumbai: Even though rumours have stated that Aishwarya Rai Bachchan would not be attending the Cannes Film Festival this year, sources close to the actress have confirmed that Ash would be attending the festival and would be accompanied by her six month old daughter Aaradhya.

Speaking to DNA, a source revealed, “Yes, Aishwarya will be going to Cannes this year. We can’t confirm about Abhishek yet, but Aishwarya won’t travel without Aradhya for sure.”

All these years, Ash has been making an appearance on the red carpet of Cannes as the brand ambassador of a cosmetic brand. This year too she would be representing the same brand making it her 11th year at the prestigious film festival. Corporate communications manager, Snehhal Chitneni of the cosmetic brand confirmed the actor’s presence and said, “Yes, Aishwarya is slated to attend the festival and she has confirmed it too. In fact, this year the actor will have a bigger role to play as the brand ambassador.”

Sources have also revealed that the actress would be walking the red carpet on two consecutive days, along with other international faces representing the brand.

And will we get to see a glimpse of her baby girl at the festival? We will just have to wait and watch for that.
