Our Bollywood beauties Sonam Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai have been regulars at the Cannes Film Festival for years now. What’s special is that this year, they’ll be joined by Deepika Padukone too and we can’t wait to watch her make her first red carpet appearance!
Apart from them, there’s one actor who seems to have become a regular at the film festival – Nawazuddin Siddiqui. The actor will head to the French Riviera to promote his upcoming film Manto along with the film’s director Nandita Das. How cool!
Nawaz particularly loves this festival because he gets to watch films from all over the world. He also said told us about his schedule.
I leave for Cannes on May 18, and the promo of the film will be screened around May 20. I’m excited about going to Cannes, and it is a special moment for me. It’s a great festival, and some of the world’s best movies are screened there every year. It’s special every time. Every actor, big or small, is respected there. It’s an experience that every actor needs to be a part of at least once in their lives.
When asked about his fashion choices for this year,
The last time, there was too much attention on my clothes (chuckles). But this time, I’m not there for long, so I am yet to decide what to wear.
Aww! We hope he has a blast nonetheless. :)
