During the red carpet event at the Cannes Film Festival, Bollywood actress Urvashi Rautela found herself being mistaken for the renowned Aishwarya Rai by the French paparazzi in attendance. A video capturing the incident quickly made its way across various social media platforms, showcasing the shutterbugs confusing Urvashi for Aishwarya at this prestigious occasion.
In the clip, Urvashi can be seen gracefully donning an elegant orange layered gown that swept the floor as she made her way down the red carpet for the screening of the film ‘Kaibutsu’ on Wednesday. While greeting the crowd and exchanging blown kisses, a voice from the spectators exclaimed ‘Aishwarya,’ prompting Urvashi to turn around and offer a warm smile.
The video was shared on Twitter by an Aishwarya fan, who captioned it: “Aishwarya’s popularity will always be unmatched. Every Indian girl at global events is called Aishwarya…”
It’s worth noting that Aishwarya herself also graced the red carpet at Cannes in 2023, further emphasizing her enduring appeal and international recognition.
This case of mistaken identity serves as a testament to Aishwarya Rai’s enduring influence and impact, as her name continues to be associated with Indian actresses representing the country on a global stage. Despite the mix-up, Urvashi Rautela handled the situation gracefully and maintained her composure throughout the event.
