So it seems the two day old mystery finally solved itself. Aishwarya Rai was spotted along with her parents at the Rolland Garros stadium attending the French Open’s men’s final match between 2nd seeded Rafael Nadal and 5th seeded Robin Soldering. As mentioned in earlier post Rafael Nadal won the final in three straight sets, 6-4, 6-2, 6-4.
On 6th June’s post, i was wondering what Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was doing at the Le Village, Rolland Garros stadium. My most probable guess was that she being the brand ambassador of the watch company Longines, and this visit had something to do with it. Honestly, i don’t think Aishwarya even follows this sport. So i wondered. I guess i was right! :)
On June 6th, during the match between Nadal and Soldering, Aishwarya Rai was among the VIP spectators at the match. She was present with her mum and dad at the occasion. Aishwarya looked like a superstar and she was all i could see. But i still wondered why? And finally Aishwarya took out those cute Japanese folding hand fans which had Longines written over it…and there you go. It was Longines thing afterall. This is no cheap publicity stunt. All starts do it. Anyways, once the mystery was over, i was finally able to rest my mind.
Also present at the finals were Beyoncé Knowles and husband Jay-Z, Guillaume Durand, Patrick Poivre d’Arvor, French footballer Christian Karembeu along with Adriana among various other French celebrities. That’s usually how all grand slam finals go. Anyhow, here are some pics of Aishwarya Rai from the match.
