While most stars would like to wear the most high fashion designs by the world’s best designers on the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival, actress Vidya Balan has opted to wear her signature sarees – something she finds herself most comfortable in.
Says Vidya in a media statement, “I will be wearing sarees forever. My style mantra here is Indian so I am going to do the same at Cannes too. I also wear a lot of Anarkalis, some of which I am going to wear there too. I am lucky enough to be dressed by the best designers in the country so I have little to worry about. I stick to my favourite colours like maroon, black, mustard, so you will be seeing them in these shades. Sabyasachi Mukherjee is designing my clothes and Jayati Bose will be doing my styling for Cannes.”
And what is the talented actress looking forward to on her maiden visit to this international film festival? Says Vidya, “I will be watching the best of world cinema and celebrating Indian cinema and everything that’s Indian at the most celebrated film festival of the world. I am also looking forward to interactions with the jury and with other people from the filmmaking fraternity and deliberations with the jury. I think there is a lot that I will get to learn.”
