Aishwarya Rai Bachchan evoked quite a reaction with her “purple lips” look at the Cannes Film Festival recently. While some loved it, others criticised the actress for her poor styling choice.

Up until now, Bachchan has remained quiet since the look was unveiled over the weekend. Hitting back at critics, she was cited in PinkVilla saying, “I had fun with it. It’s interesting and evoked all kinds of responses, and art does that. And I have said this not now in the context of ��Purple Lips�۪, but I have maintained this over the years about the red carpet or creatives.�۝

She further added, ���It�۪s not the first or last in my life. It�۪s the time for the creative artists to have their Picasso moments. Sometimes people get it and sometimes they don�۪t. Sometimes it can be ��Wow�۪ and sometimes it can be��_ I really can�۪t comprehend it. And that�۪s fine! It�۪s really not my fulcrum of existence and I have enjoyed it.�۝
