When asked to comment on Aishwarya's purple pout, he told IANS: "I think she looked fantastic. She always does."
Aishwarya's choice of lip colour turned out to be a head turner on the red carpet but her look was trolled widely on social media. She wore an embellished Rami Kadi dress to the screening of her upcoming movie Sarbjit.
The actress, whose forthcoming film Sarbjit was showcased at the gala on May 15, attended the fest for the 15th year as brand ambassador of cosmetic giant L'Oreal Paris.
