Mumbai, May 16 IBNS | 2 months ago

L'Oreal Paris ambassador Aishwarya Rai Bachchan who was set to walk the red carpet at the Festival de Cannes on May 16, was not able to do so due to the Air Traffic Control (ATC) strike in France. According to reports, Bachchan's flight from London to Nice was delayed and hence she hasn't been able to reach Cannes as planned.


With the latest development, the L'Oreal Paris team is making arrangements for the Bollywood actress to walk the red carpet on an alternate day.

Manashi Guha, General Manager L'Oreal Paris India said, "Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is truly a global icon for L'Oreal Paris and has been attending Cannes on behalf of the brand for 13 years now."

"While the delay has been unfortunate, we are making sure that Aishwarya attends the event on an alternate date and we are sure she will dazzle as always."

Bachchan was scheduled to make an appearance on the red carpet on May 16 and May 21.

While she will walk on May 21, the L'Oreal Paris team will soon confirm the date for her second appearance.
