Bollywood beauty queen/actress Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan arrives on the red carpet with hubby Abhishek for the world premiere of ‘The Pink Panther 2′ held at the Ziegfeld Theatre in New York City.
Aishwarya was wearing a dazzling black cleavage-baring dress with matching open-toed heels as she worked it on the red carpet outside the Ziegfeld Theater.
In an interview, Aishwarya told press about her role in The Pink Panther 2 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 international 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.”
The movie hits theaters this Friday, February 6th.
