Will Aaradhya accompany mommy Aishwarya to this year's Cannes?

Aishwarya has become a Cannes regular ever since her film Devdas was chosen for the film festival in 2002.

This year, she will most likely be attending the event on May 19 wearing an Ashi Studio creation.

The 45-year-old actress will be representing a French cosmetics company. Last year, she was accompanied by her daughter Aaradhya.

Whether that would be repeated isn't clear yet.


Sonam has started working out hard for her Cannes appearance

Sonam Kapoor, known for her chic fashion choices, is expected to be present at the 72nd edition of the French Riviera on May 20-21.

Last year, she attended the event just days after getting married to Anand Ahuja.

For this year's appearance, she has already started working out hard, and is knocking off the extra fat she has gained during her recent London vacation.
