Aishwarya Rai at Pink Panther premiere

Aishwarya Rai walked down the red-carpet yesterday for the Premiere of her latest international flick, Pink Panther 2 with hubby Abhishek and pa-in-law Amitabh Bachchan. Ask her about her blink and miss role in PP2 and she says, “It’s a bit silly and exhausting to even talk about the length of my role based on what is seen in the trailers. Did anyone question my role in Khakee, when there was only one shot of me in the promo? Isn’t that a very myopic view of contemporary acting? And I thought I had transcended this footage fetish in my first film Iruvar (1997).” “The choices I have made in my career aren’t just about footage but an opportunity to work with actors, directors and technicians who enrich my life.

I didn’t work in Pink Panther 2 only because it was an internatio
nal project. It was a wonderful experience working with a stalwart like Steve Martin and the rest of the cast and crew. Of course, Pink Panther is a Steve Martin vehicle. Is that s o m e - thing to question? All the rest of the wonderful cast including Jean Reno and Andy Garcia play supporting roles. I treasure the experience of working in Pink Panther 2. Why spoil it by questioning how much footage I have? So many Indian actors have worked in international ensemble casts.” Well so do you like Ash’s look at the premiere?
