Festive flavour at Canne
BAD films, lacklustre performances and to top it all hideous clothes seem only to add to actor AISHWARYA RAI'S endless list of woes. After having been canned for her "terrible" performance in the film "Mistress of Spices", Rai once again demonstrated how not to be a good actor. Despite all this, her presence at the film festival at Cannes is seen as the high point of the Indian presence. Not so much for her acting prowess as for the clothes that she manages to wear. This year too the speculation was endless with many hoping she would not repeat her "fur trimmed rabit reduox" outfit. Rai, who claims to "love being at Cannes," managed to pull it off with a sleeker version of herself and her sartorial preferences. That she loves being there on the red carpet was demonstrated when she declared, "I love the city and its people. It is one event that I try and attend every year." Though she agrees she has little time to take in the local flavours, she insists, "this is one festival that I would not want to skip."
