Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s tryst with the Cannes Film Festival began with “Devdas” and she will be completing 15 years of going to the prestigious film fest this year. The actress says she still cherishes her first outing at the gala, adding that no one “in the world can take away that” from her.
“Devdas”, inspired by Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay’s 1901 novel, featured Shah Rukh Khan as Devdas, Aishwarya as Paro and Madhuri Dixit as Chandramukhi.
The Sanjay Leela Bhansali directorial was a cinematic marvel with revelry of dance, music hoopla and a tragic love story splashed with myriad emotions.
Ask her how has the perspective about Indian cinema changed at the foreign films festival with time and she said: “I don’t know how much I can underline that or validate that but I would definitely say that my first experience was truly memorable and exceedingly special”.
