Indian star Aishwarya Rai says she's getting used to married life

Bollywood icon Aishwarya Rai is a household name in many countries. Now the actress, who married fellow film star Abhishek Bachchan last month, is getting used to a new moniker.

"This is the first travel where people start calling you, 'Hello Mrs. Bachchan, good evening,"' Rai told AP Television on Wednesday.

"I've maybe done a double take at times, but pleasantly so, it makes us smile, so it's been good," she said.

Rai, 31, a former Miss World, interrupted her honeymoon for a flying visit to the Cannes Film Festival. She is in the French Riviera resort as part of the team of models for cosmetics company L'Oreal.

Rai was in the audience - and on the red carpet - for Wednesday's opening-night festival screening of Wong Kar-wai's "My Blueberry Nights," but said she hoped to return to her vacation by the weekend.

Once she is back in India, Rai said she would continue work on her latest film, the 16th-century royal love story "Jodha-Akbar."

The Cannes Film Festival runs to May 27.
