Priety At Cannes 2007
There's more to this year's Cannes film festival than its red carpet. The event promises to be a very big year for India with the focus being on our 60 years of independence coinciding with 60 years of Cannes.
So, some of Bollywood's biggest names are going to hit the waterfront and they have their reasons too.
India's 'first lady of the festival' Aishwarya Rai has all but become Cannes' unofficial brand ambassador.
For the last three years, she's been a fixture at the Croisette, beaming down from hoardings or fluttering on the red carpet in couture.
This time around, she's sporting one accessory everyone's pleased about, husband Abhishek and perhaps her in-laws too because the Amitabh Bachchan-Tabu starrer Cheeni Kum will premiere on May 20 at Cannes.
But Big B's co-star has other plans. "I have other commitments and may not be able to be at Cannes," said Tabu.
Joining the fun and perhaps also hoping to be a regular at the French Riviera is Preity Zinta. She will be on her second visit for a luxury watch brand.
John Abraham and Bipasha Basu might show up as well for their film Goal.
London's not enough for Shilpa Shetty who seems to have her eye on France after the Leicester Square release of Life in a Metro, hoping to cash in on the Cannes buzz.
From Guru to Rituparno Ghosh's Dosar, one can watch the world and enjoy the best of Indian cinema in France.
