Both Aishwarya and Fagun were next invited to the premiere of ‘Carol’, starring Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara.  Aishwarya and Fagun’s presence at Carol, a film exploring feminine values through its two strong female protagonists, continued to demonstrate their support for gender equality in cinema.
