The Cannes Film Festival 2016 is the 69th annual Cannes Film Festival currently being held from 11 to 22 May, 2016. And this time RandeepHooda and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s film “Sarbjit” was screened at the festival. Though Randeep missed out on it, Aishwarya, director Omung Kumar and the rest of the team was present for the screening. But this time, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s red carpet was quite bizzare but at the same time earned her hell loads of trolls on social media.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan who thought of sporting this hatke style but it came out to be a disaster. She wore a beautiful floral Rami Khadi dress and completed her look with smoky eyes and purple lips. But the Purple Lips caught attention of everybody and were met with heavy disapproval. The look altogether was good, but the Purple Lips killed it.

Here’s how the Twitteratis went wild with laughter and clever tweets trolling the actress. Someone tweeted: Did Aishwarya kiss a smurf this time before she walked the red carpet at Cannes? People were just started with the trolls, when someone tweeted: Looks like she ate a lot of Jaamuns before going to the red carpet.Another tweet was: Urban Rich – Aishwarya’s lips look like she had Black Currant Ice Cream…. Urban Poor – Aishwarya’s lips look like she had Kala Khatta Gola. Some even took a dig at the IPL team “Rising Pune Supergiants” whose jersey colour matches with the colour of Aishwarya’s lipstick. The tweet was: Did Ash kiss Rising Pune Supergiants? And it was still not over. People were criticising for her declining Bollywood career as well: I want whatever Aishwarya Rai has been smoking for the last 10 years.

When asked about her look, Aishwarya boldly said in an interview, “I am an actor by my career choice. I enjoy fashion and I treat it like art and I have a life, a family. So, I am not focussing in all this. So the look doesn’t stress me out. It doesn’t make me nervous. I am a professional.”

Aishwarya is celebrating 15 years of representing India at the French Rivera. Her film “ SARBJIT” has surely won a lot of hearts at the screening and people were convinced that this film will win big awards for sure. But Aishwarya’s statement about her look was quite valiant and she certainly seems unperturbed with all those trolls.
