Cannes Film Festival 2019

Festival de Cannes which is also known as the Cannes Film Festival has always witnessed monumental moments. From recognising excellence in the field of International cinema to serving as a platform for new and upcoming talent, Cannes has never disappointed its audience and cinema lovers across the globe. The one other thing that Cannes is famous for is the glamour quotient that the celebrities add to it. From re-invention of styles to unconventional innovations in fashion, a lot happens over the weekend and more often than not, it leaves the on-lookers gawking with surprise and amusement.

Indian actresses have been representing films, brands and in doing so representing India itself at the world-famous platform. From Aishwarya Rai Bachchan to Sonam Kapoor to the latest addition to Cannes’ list of Red Carpet divas – Kangana Ranaut, everyone is dressed to impress and inspire. 

Reports suggest that the 72nd edition of the Cannes Film Festival will see Mental Hai Kya actress, Kangana Ranaut making an appearance between 16th and 18th May. Sonam Kapoor Ahuja will be walking the red carpet on May 21st and 22nd while Deepika Padukone will appear at the French Riviera on 16th May. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is expected to return to the annual event on 19th May. While the dates aren’t clear yet, Huma Qureshi will also be attending the film festival. A surprise addition to this year’s list of Indian celebrities is TV actress, Hina Khan.

Xclusive| #KanganaRanaut to don a saree at #CannesFilmFestival Source – @middayindia Kangana Ranaut to don a unique saree for the Cannes Festival, says 'the clothes I wear will have drama'. Revealing that her clothes will reflect the theme 'Live Victoriously,' Kangana reveals to Mid-Day that "the clothes I wear will have drama. At the same time as an Indian actor, I have the responsibility of endorsing our weavers, and wearing outfits that reflect our rich heritage. My stylist Ami Patel and I have been brainstorming for weeks. We, along with Falguni and Shane Peacock, are designing a unique saree. The idea is to bring the forgotten weaves to the fore so that the world is more aware of our rich fabrics and culture." Kangana goes on to add, "I was so busy with Panga. I had to gain almost 10 kilos for the film. During trials, I realised I have to lose some weight." Lauding the Desi Girls at the MET Gala, Kangana goes on to add, "In 2012, I attended Rakesh Roshan's birthday party sporting a no-eyebrows look. So risque dressing has never been a deterrent. I was one of the first actresses to wear sarees to the airport. When I was seeing the MET Gala pictures, I thought that in India, the real queen of Camp would be Rekhaji. It's wonderful how Priyanka (Chopra) and Deepika (Padukone) are making their mark there." #QueenAtCannes #KanganaAtCannes #QueenOfBollywood
