Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s Cannes look draws camera flashes, and criticism
- Aishwarya Rai Bachchan made her red carpet appearance on Day 2 of the Cannes Film Festival
- She wore a black satin gown
- As she walked the red carpet, trolls followed
Bollywood actor Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s red carpet appearance on the second day of the 75th Cannes Film Festival consisted of a long ball gown train, and an even longer train of trolls and criticism.
Bachchan, who last starred in the 2018 film ‘Fanney Khan’, let her Cannes looks make up for her lack of onscreen appearances. On Day 2 of the event, the 48-year-old attended the screening of Tom Cruise-starrer ‘Top Gun: Maverick’.
As pictures and videos of her in a black one-sleeved gown hit the internet, several users put on their critic glasses, carefully observing dress details, possible lip jobs and any signs of botox.
When Filmfare uploaded her images and said that the “Queen is here,” one Twitter user said, “hmmm may be someone's queen but here she looks like garden of disaster. find another stylist.”
“aap bhut aged lag rahe maam other wise good (you look very aged ma’am but otherwise good),” said another user on Instagram.
“Oh no! What did you do to yourself,” asked one user when Bachchan uploaded an image in a pink pantsuit on Instagram.
“You are looking too old....,” wrote another user.
“Even Aishwarya Rai ages with time,” said another.
Other users wondered if the ‘Devdas’ star had gone under the knife.
“Doesn’t it look like she has gone through plastic surgery and all?” one user asked.
Another added, “Oh god looks like she might have also done botox as her face is swollen.”
Bachchan, who will next be seen in 'Ponniyin Selvan', opted for a bright pink pantsuit by Maison Valentino to mark her Cannes appearance. For the red carpet, she wore a satin black Dolce & Gabbana ball gown with floral accents.
