Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's lavender-blue lipstick during "Sarbjit" premiere at the Cannes film festival did not go well with the Twitterati as the Bollywood actress is facing a backlash for her choice. The 42 year old Indian beauty teamed her purple lips with flower-strewn Rami Kadi off-shoulder dress. She completed her dramatic look with gothic eyes and a high ponytail.
"Aishwarya's lips all over. But can't blame the trolls. Looks like she ate a lot of Jaamuns before going to the red carpet. #cannes," a user wrote. Another asked, "Did Aishwarya kiss a smurf this time before she walked the red carpet at Cannes?"
Relating it with urban poor and urban rich urban poor conundrum, a Twitter user posted "Urban rich: Aishwarya's lips look like she had black current ice cream. Urban poor: Aishwarya's lips look like she had kala khatta gola."
"Petition for aishwarya rai to fire her make up artist what are those purple lips," a user tweeted. Another wrote, "When Asian Paints sponsors your lipstick..."
The actress says she is not very bothered by what fashion police thinks about her choices. "I am an actor by my career choice. I enjoy fashion and I treat it like art and I have a life, a family. I am not focusing on all of this. So it doesn't stress me out or make me nervous. I am a professional.''
