Aishwarya to attend IIFA awards
The pendulum swings a complete circle. Rumours that Aishwarya Rai will not be attending the International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) awards in Dubai, as she wanted extra money for her performance, can be safely put to rest.
Aishwarya, who had flown into Mumbai from Chennai for a day to dub for J.P. Dutta's "Umrao Jaan", does not know whether to laugh or fume at the allegation.
"Yes, my performance at IIFA was called off but not because I had money issues. People have to make up stories, spice up the truth just to create a sensational story. But the truth, I am afraid, is far less exciting.
"The reason why I couldn't perform was because Mani Rathnam's shooting just didn't allow me to get away long enough to rehearse and then fly down to perform," said the actress.
However, in a flash-decision, Aishwarya has decided to go to Dubai for IIFA after all. She is leaving for Dubai Wednesday to attend the premiere of her film "Provoked".
Said Aishwarya: "But not to perform. I'll be there for the screening of my film 'Provoked'. That was something I had to attend. Fortunately, Mani could let me go for just one day. I will attend the screening of 'Provoked' followed by press conferences.
"Then I am back in Chennai on 15th morning to join Mani for his shooting. Of course, I won't be there for the main event. But what to do?"
"By now I am used to keeping impossible schedules. I hardly get time to be home with my family," Aishwarya remarked.
