Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is known for bringing utmost glamour to the red carpet events of Cannes Film Festival each year. She’s an integral part of the Indian contingent at the prestigious event and represents brands like L’Oreal and designers like Manish Malhotra. Along with Aish, several B-town celebs too stamped their appearances but it was Aishwarya’s beauty which is unmissable at this stage.
The ‘Queen’ of Bollywood Kangana Ranaut made her debut appearance at this prestigious event with this embellished gown and messy curly hair.
At the ongoing 71st Cannes Film Festival, the gorgeous Aishwarya Rai Bachchan slayed it with all that artwork by Micheal Cinco, Girogio Armani, Manish Arora and Rami Kadi for her first red carpet appearance.
All that glamour on the red carpet wasn’t without a picture with her real precious gem – her daughter Aaradhya Bachchan. The doting mother who takes her loving daughter wherever she goes, didn’t miss the opportunity. Have a look at the mother-daughter duo enjoying their special moments:
However, it’s not these images that caught the attention on social media. It’s the Instagram debut of the former Miss World, which she announced the same day with a throwback silhouette photo of her with newly-born Aaradhya that was taken by Abhishek Bachchan.
The actress uploaded her first post almost 10 hours since her Instagram account first opened.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan instead of opting for the usual ‘single’ post format, chose a grid format. You can hardly make out who is who in the picture, but it was posted from her Instagram profile.
Her husband Abhishek Bachchan also welcomed his wife on the platform with this sweet post – a throwback image when the couple made their Cannes debut shortly after their marriage:
However, it’s worth noting that we didn’t expect Aishwarya’s official Instagram to meet such a lukewarm response after her debut – she only has 656k followers, in comparison to Katrina Kaif who has 10.7m followers and Aamir Khan, who has 864k Insta followers. It’s so shocking that even Aishwarya is miffed with her PR team for such a flop debut, as unexpected for her stature.
Have a look at some of the reactions from her worldwide fans who can’t digest this is her real Instagram profile:
Meanwhile, the newly married Sonam Kapoor Ahuja who is expected to arrive at the Cannes film festival soon, took to social media and welcomed her mentor in this sweet Instagram message:
