The gorgeous actress attended a movie premiere and left her handprint in Dubai Studio City.

At last, Aishwarya Rai did make it to Dubai on the opening day of the seventh International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) weekend. The actress has been shooting for Mani Ratnam's movie Guru in Chennai and could make it to IIFA for a day only.




But quite an eventful day it was for Ms Rai on Wednesday.

Aishwarya attended the premiere of her movie Provoked , which is directed by Jagmohan Mundhra . The film has Ash playing a real-life character of a Punjabi woman (in Britain) who kills her husband after suffering years of physical and mental abuse at his hands.

The movie's premiere was a star-studded event attended by Amitabh Bachchan , his wife Jaya Bachchan , Shabana Azmi and Javed Akhtar .

The response to the movie was quite heartening and Jagmohan Mundhra particularly looked elated.

When asked by a journalist what prompted him to make this movie, Mundhra said: "Once somebody asked Kiranjit (the story's protagonist) how she felt when she was serving her sentence in jail. She said I feel free. Which is a telling statement. It shows how bonded she was with her husband who tortured her."

Besides the 'Provoked' premiere, Ash also left her handprint on the Dubai Studio City's Hall of Fame. She is the first Bollywood celebrity to have this honor.

After leaving her handprint, Ash said: "It is like leaving a part of myself here. I am extending my hand of friendship to Dubai."

Just last year, Ash had a tulip named after her in Amsterdam at the IIFA 2005 weekend in Holland.

Ash now returns to Chennai to resume the shooting of Mani Ratnam's film. She is not likely to attend the award function on June 16.
