Aishwarya shall go to the ball. Rumours that she was going to be giving Cannes a miss this year are untrue. Ash will not only go to Cannes for the eleventh time next week, she will also take five month old Beti B with her.
L'Oreal, the brand that Ash represents at Cannes, confirmed that their superstar ambassador would be on the red carpet this year. Corporate Communications Manager Snehhal Chitneni 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."
Speculation about Ash skipping Cannes this year seem to have been prompted by an intense scrutiny of Ash's post-pregnancy weight, a topic that was hotly debated on the Internet across blogs and social networking sites.
The Cannes Film Festival begins on May 16. Ash will reportedly walk the red carpet on two days. It's unlikely that the waiting press will get a glimpse of Beti B who has been carefully guarded by the Bachchans so far.
Kareena Kapoor, Arjun Rampal and Freida Pinto will also be at Cannes this year.
