Few days back, there were several reports doing rounds that Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was denied entry at a photo call during press meet of her upcoming film 'Jazbaa' at the 68th Cannes Film Festival.
"The security personnel didn't allow Aishwarya access to the India Pavilion because she was not in possession of the Blue Pass. Therefore, Aishwarya and the whole 'Jazbaa' team had to wait 20 minutes or more at the gate," Daily Bhaskar quoted Satish Reddy, Managing Director of World News Network, as saying.
The news immediately went viral. Later, director Sanjay Gupta took to his Twitter handle to slam these reports.
In 'Jazbaa', Aishwarya Rai Bachchan essays a lawyer and will be seen performing some hard-core action stunts. Irrfan plays a suspended cop. The film also stars Shabana Azmi, Anupam Kher and Siddhant Kapoor.
Produced by Essel Vision Productions Pvt Ltd and White Feather Films, the thriller will hit the big screens on 9th October.
