After Aishwarya, Sonam and of course, Vidya Balan, another T’town beauty will have a Cannes outing. Ameesha Patel is heading to the prestigious film festival for the premiere of her film ‘Shortcut Romeo’, which also stars Neil Nitin Mukesh and Puja Gupta.
The film, directed by Susi Ganesh, will be screened at the French Riviera on May 22. Now, with Ash, Sonam and Vidya turning up in their designer threads, can Ameesha be left behind? The actress says she will be putting her best look and best foot forward for the festival and has roped in Manish Malhotra to work on her look.
In an interview to a leading daily, Ameesha says, “It is a huge honour for me to be representing our cinema at Cannes. I am not going there as a brand ambassador. I am going there for my movie and that is a big deal. Manish and I have decided that since I am representing the country on a global platform, it would be perfect to be dressed in something that’s truly desi. Nothing looks better on an Indian woman than a sari or lehenga. I have to walk the red carpet in the morning and the premiere is at night, so there will be two outfits.”
Manish said that he has given Ameesha something very Indian yet ‘red carpetish’. Black and white, being classic colours, have been incorporated in her outfit that is high on Kashmiri and Chikankari work.
Let the battle of the Cannes beauties begin!
