Aishwarya says she‚Äôs getting used to married life
FRANCE: Bollywood icon Aishwarya Rai is a household name in
many countries. Now the actress, who married fellow film star Abhishek
Bachchan last month, is getting used to a new moniker.
‚ÄúThis is the first travel where people start calling you, ‚ÄėHello Mrs.
Bachchan, good evening,‚ÄĚ‚Äô Rai told AP Television on Wednesday.
‚ÄúI‚Äôve maybe done a double take at times, but pleasantly so, it makes
us smile, so it‚Äôs been good,‚ÄĚ she said.
Rai, 31, a former Miss World, interrupted her honeymoon for a flying
visit to the Cannes Film Festival. She is in the French Riviera resort
as part of the team of models for cosmetics company L‚ÄôOreal.
Rai was in the audience - and on the red carpet - for Wednesday‚Äôs
opening-night festival screening of Wong Kar-wai‚Äôs ‚ÄúMy Blueberry
Nights,‚ÄĚ but said she hoped to return to her vacation by the weekend.
Once she is back in India, Rai said she would continue work on her
latest film, the 16th-century royal love story ‚ÄúJodha-Akbar.‚ÄĚ
The Cannes Film Festival runs to May 27.
