Aishwarya Rai Pictures
Also on offer from the Indian camp is Jagmohan Mundhra’s Aishwarya Rai starrer, Provoked (also co-stars Lost‘s Naveen Andrews) based on the real-life story of a battered Indian woman who ended up killing her abusive husband in Britain a few years ago. Aishwarya, a Cannes regular by virtue of being one of the brand ambassadors of French cosmetics giant L’Oreal, has already registered her presence here. She sashayed up the red carpet in an off-the-shoulder gown, with Hollywood actress Andie MacDowell for company, on the opening night. She is scheduled to stay on for the special market screening festival of Provoked later in the festival.
Bollywood bombshell Aishwarya Rai, 32, is also set to star in two upcoming films in English — Singular (2006) alongside Brendan Fresar and Chaos (2007) alongside Meryl Streep.
