Cannes, May 14; The Daily Mail, London has published stunning photographs of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan at the Cannes Film Festival.
The report says, Aishwarya Rai can be forgiven for going for a plain outfit as she attended a photocall for the festival yesterday.
However, while Aishwarya's dress was absent of any glamour, it flattered her lithe figure and complemented her brunette hair, the report added.
The 37-year-old actress teamed the dress with a pair of black strappy sandals as she posed on the dock.
Aishwarya, who is arguably one of the most recognisable Indian actresses, was at Cannes to announce she would be signing on for a new project - a tale of a fictional Bollywood star entitled Heroine.
Asked if the film would be at all autobiographical, Aishwarya replied: 'That's what the viewer will probably be searching for, but very honestly, as an actor, it's your professional responsibility to give to your characters with absolute commitment.
'It's not just about you going out there and doing your own thing and creating your own character.
'It's the director who wrote it and that's the way it gets read and that's the way it gets eventually brought to life.'
The movie, from director Madhur Bhandarkar, is billed by the production company as an 'entertaining, daring, emotional, shocking, glamorous, scandalous behind-the-scenes account of the reality behind the world of glitz and glamour that our stars inhabit.'
Aishwarya posed at the photocall with director Bhandarkar and producer Ronnie Screwvala.The actress has been keeping busy during the Cannes Film Festival, and also made an appearance at the opening night ceremony and screening of Woody Allen's Midnight In Paris looking stunning in a nude asymmetric beaded gown.
A release date for Heroine has yet to be announced, but production is due to commence in June.
