Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was in Cannes recently to promote her next film Jazbaa. As per a reliable source present at the festival in Cannes, the world media and the locals lined up against the barriers of gate, Aishwarya was barred entry by the Cannes security supervisors on the gate.
Satish Reddy, the Managing Director of World News Network who was present at the event confirms, “The security personnel’s didn’t allow Aishwarya the access to the Indian Pavilion because she was not in possession of the mandatory Blue Pass”. Reddy added, “Therefore, Aishwarya and the whole Jazbaa team Director Sanjay Gupta and Co producer Sachin Joshi had to wait 20 or more minutes at the gate”. “It was the prompt initiative taken by Indian Embassy Protocol officer Satyapaul and the FICCI representatives who saved the day for the actress and her film producers,” concluded Reddy.
Further, “The car in which Mrs Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was seated had no Blue Permission sticker that gives admission to the guests in the pavilion. They were barred on the gates. We had to rush and convince the chief security officer. It took us inside an hour to convince that Mrs Bachchan was a global celebrity. Even though the security chief on the pretext of we who will handle the police in case of double check granted a verbal permission. Finally all went on well,” said Satya Paul.
Sources say that the actress was upset with the fiasco and left the venue instantly after her professional commitment was done. I’m glad that the entire situation was finally resolved, but what a hassle!
