Abhishek opens India Pavillion at CannesFri, May 15, 2009 10:37 IST
Bollywood star Abhishek Bachchan opened the India Pavillion on the Cannes beach front on Thursday amid great fanfare.
While wife Aishwarya Rai hogged the limelight on the opening day of the Cannes Film Fest by sashaying the red carpet in an off-shoulder white Roberto Cavalli gown, even as Abhi remained on the sidelines, Thursday was the day junior Bachchan drew a crowd of photographers, pen pushers and autograph-seekers, who elbowed one another to get closer to the star.
Interestingly, at the opening of the India pavilion, Aishwarya and veteran actress Sharmila Tagore , who is on the festival jury, were conspicuous by their absence. However, there were other Bollywood celebs like Subhash Ghai , Deepti Naval , Manisha Koirala , producer Bobby Bedi and Christian Jeune, Deputy General-Delegate of the Cannes Film Festival amongst others.
In a brief speech at the event, Jeune hoped that India's dry run at the Festival, now on since the 2002 Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Devdas , would soon end.
Deepti Naval is here to screen her debut feature, Two Paise for Sunshine, Four Annas for Rain, in the market along with Manisha Koirala, who plays the lead in the film.
By the way, on Thursday, Ash and Abhi again walked the red carpet for the screening of the film 'Chun feng chen zui de ye wan' (Spring Fever).
The festival will conclude on May 24.
