Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, who will soon be seen in Sarbjit, says Cannes is the best platform to showcase the biopic. The film is a biopic on Sarabjit Singh, an Indian farmer who was convicted of terrorism and spying in Pakistan and was sentenced to death. It narrates the story from the point of view of Dalbir Kaur, Sarabjit’s sister played by Aishwarya, who endured severe hardships in trying to get her brother released. After 22 years on death row, Sarabjit was attacked by fellow inmates in jail and died in a Lahore hospital in May 2013.
she said at the launch of a L’Oreal cosmetic line, “I do not know if the team will be able to make the opportunity possible on that platform… Given the timeline, if it is possible, the team will look for the opportunity. If there are too many deadlines to match… that chance may have to be cut off.”
Aishwarya said in a statement, “15 years with Cannes have gone by in a flash and the journey has been immensely humbling and beautiful. I’ve treasured every moment at Cannes and I’m ever so thankful to L’Oreal Paris, members of the Indian and world media, my well-wishers and my family for always making this such a memorable experience. I’m looking forward to now creating some Infallible moments at the French Riviera with my L’Oreal family of amazing make-up technicians and my co-ambassadors.”
