Apart from Aishwarya, several other Indian artistes are attending the film fiesta this year. The 75th edition of Cannes has picked India as the ‘country of honour‘. Actors Deepika Padukone, Tamannaah Bhatia, Pooja Hegde, Urvashi Rautela, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, filmmaker Shekhar Kapur and music maestro AR Rahman were among those who walked the red carpet on its Day 1.
I&B Minister Anurag Thakur inaugurated the India Pavilion at Cannes Film Market – ‘Marche du Film’. He rolled out the red carpet for foreign filmmakers to make movies in the country by offering incentives up to Rs 2.5 crore for co-production and hiring local manpower in such ventures.
Deepika, who is attending Cannes 2022 as a jury member spoke at the India Pavilion on Wednesday. She said, “I feel as a nation, we have it. We have the talent, we have the ability and I think we just need that sort of conviction. I truly believe there will come a day when Indian won’t have to be at Cannes, and Cannes (film festival) will be in India.”
