Sonam Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan‘s managers have been working overtime to ensure that there is no overlap in their schedules at Cannes, to prevent any awkward moments that might occur if they were to bump into each other.

However, I heard from someone on-site at Cannes that local journalists were unaware that things are uncomfortable between the two leading ladies. Therefore, they begun asking Sonam about the prestige that Ash brings to the country. In the beginning, it seems that Sonam answered a few questions, but after a point she just stuck to the mandatory “next question please” posture! Ouch.
