Bollywood will be strongly represented at 64th Cannes International Film taking place in the French Riveria. The festival starts May11th and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Freida Pinto, Mallika Sherawat, and Sonam Kapoor, will walk the red carpet.
“This is my first time at Cannes and I’m sure it’ll be even more magical than what people say about it. I can’t wait to be on that red carpet!,” gushed Sonam, who like Aishwarya and Freida, will be representing beauty label L’Oreal.
“Several countries have always had more than one spokeswoman at Cannes and I’m glad India is finally getting the same recognition,” she says, adding, “I am happy that they are both invited.” Freida, too, is super excited. “It’s every actor’s dream to attend this festival,” she says.
Cannes will celebrate Bollywood by screening an 81-minute documentary titled Bollywood — The Greatest Love Story Ever Told, at the festival. Directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra and American filmmaker Jeff Zimbalist, the film commemorates Indian cinema over the past 100 years.
