Cannes' favourite desi girl just checked into the French Riviera. Actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and four-year-old-daughter Aaradhya were photographed at the Martinez Hotel in Cannes on Friday.
This is the 42-year-old actress' 15th year at the film festival and she will walk the red carpet this evening, though she says she doesn't have a dress picked out yet.
 

On Thursday night, Aishwarya was photographed at Mumbai airport leaving for Cannes. She was also accompanied by her mother Brinda Rai.
 

Aishwarya's delayed departure has been due to her new film Sarbjit, which she has been busy promoting. She will walk the red carpet on May 13 and May 14. She's also going to have to skip the amfAR Gala which she attends annually - Sarbjit releases on May 20 and the Gala is to be held on May 19. Aishwarya's vacant spot will be filled by her colleague Sonam Kapoor.
Sarbjit, which is directed by Omung Kumar, is an important film for Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. It is her second film after last year's poorly-received Jazbaa - which was the movie that marked her return after a five-year break - and the trailer of the film has generated very good press for the actress' performance. She stars as Dalbir Kaur, the sister of Indian farmer Sarabjit Singh who died in a Pakistani prison. Randeep Hooda plays the titular character and Richa Chadha appears as his wife.
The Cannes Film Festival, which began on May 11, has already seen major stars such as George Clooney, Julia Roberts, Blake Lively and Kristen Stewart attend, as well as L'Oreal ambassadors Julianne Moore, Eva Longoria and Naomi Watts. Sonam, who walks the red carpet on May 15 and 16, is in London en route Cannes.
