Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s film Sarbjit is all set to release on May 20, 2016. The release date is final, but we wonder if the actress will be there to promote the film in India then. Like every year, Aishwarya is likely to travel to the Cannes International Film Festival in May as part of the jury. It seems Sarbjit will be promoted and even premiered at Cannes 2016, just as her 2015 film Jazbaa was promoted at the prestigious film festival. The 69th Festival de Cannes is scheduled to be held from May 11-22, 2016, on the banks of the French Riviera. (ALSO SEE: Aishwarya Rai Bachchan looks absolutely beautiful at Sarbjit poster launch!

Sarbjit is a biopic based on the life of Sarabjit Singh, the Indian man who was wrongly imprisoned in Pakistan for crossing the border by mistake. He spent his life in jail and died in Pakistan, but his sister Dalbir Kaur kept fighting for his release from prison while he was alive. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan plays the role of Dalbir Kaur in the movie, directed by Mary Kom director Omung Kumar.

Actor Randeep Hooda plays the title role in Sarbjit and the film also features actors Masaan actress Richa Chadha and Mary Kom actor Darshan Kumar in important roles – Richa being Sarabjit Singh’s wife in the movie. But it is Aishwarya Rai Bachchan who is the face of the film and has been promoting it thus.

Sarbjit the film is not yet complete and its final shooting schedule will commence in Mumbai soon, say reports. But we are already thinking about a good response the film could get at Cannes 2016! After all, it’s an international topic and it’s a film with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, no less! Let’s hope for the best for the Sarbjit team!
