Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan to spend an evening with The Godfather star Al Pacino?

The Bollywood couple was slated to meet the Hollywood veteran at an event at the London Palladium on June 2, but will not make it now

UPDATE: Abhishek Bachchan attended the event.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan will not attend ‘An Evening with Pacino’ in London, a fresh statement from Sterling, organisers of the event, said.

Earlier report: Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan, considered Bollywood royalty in the global diaspora, are all set to spend an evening with The Godfather actor Al Pacino. The event, organised by Rocco Buonvino and Sterling 2 Ent, will give audience members an opportunity to speak to Pacino in a question and answer (Q&A) session.

Giving company to Abhi-Ash will be celebrities from all over, including Sir David Frost, Mark Rylance, Steven Berkoff, Paul O’Grady, Peter Andre, Amanda Holden, Paul Mckena, JLS, Beverley Knight, Jocelyn Brown, Paul Nicholas, Chris Andrea, Peter and Emily Andrea, Barbara Windsor, Linda Henry, Cheryl Ferguson, David Gandy, Brian May, Anita Dobson, John Cleese, Ant & Dec (Anthony McPartlin and Declan Donnelly) and Robert Plant.

Aishwarya and pa-in-law Amitabh Bachchan are just back from the 66th Cannes International Film Festival soiree. We wonder what Ash will be wearing in London and what she will be asking Pacino! However, her presence at the do is yet to be confirmed by her spokesperson although Sterling confirms it.

‘An Evening with Pacino’ is a paid for event and will be held on Sunday, June 2, 2013 at the London Palladium, 7.30pm onwards. And btw, tickets are already sold out!
