Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, who is a regular figure at the Cannes Festival, had to face humiliation this time around. Actually, she was stopped at the gate and wasn’t allowed entry inside. She was there to promote her upcoming film.
Sanjay Gupta is the director of Jazbaa, Aish’s upcoming film. Sachin Joshi is the co-producer of the film. There was media presence along with the locals at the gate near the Indian Pavilion. All of them were eager to take a look at the Indian beauty.
It is understood that the reason for stopping Aishwarya at the gate was due to some security reason. Actually, the entry is allowed only if the person has a Blue Pass and it looked like Ash didn’t carry one at that time. The Jazbaa team had to be at the gate for around 20 minutes or so.
The reason for the goof up was the carelessness of the promoters of the film’s event.
Satyapaul, who is the Indian Embassy Protocol officer, saved the day for the beautiful Indian actress. It was later understood that the car in which Aishwarya came to the event didn’t have a Blue Permission sticker. Naturally, the security officer didn’t allow Ash’s car inside.
The officer was convinced that Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was a global icon and that the event management of the film would handle the police in case the situation arises later.
