Pakistani actress Mahira Khan dazzled in dark blue dress as she marked her debut appearance at the 71st red carpet of the Cannes Film Festival. Being the first brand ambassador for L’Oreal Paris from Pakistan she is the first actress to represent Pakistan at the Cannes Film Festival.
It was her two incredible performances in movies like ‘Verna’ following her Bollywood debut ‘Raees’ that paved the way for her to reach the most prestigious film festival. Mahira Khan has now joined the likes of Aishwarya Rai, Deepika Padukone and Sonam Kapoor who are also the face of beauty brand L’Oreal Paris.
Mahira Khan’s picture with the newlywed Bollywood diva Sonam Kapoor at the Cannes Film Festival is making rounds on social media. People were impatiently waiting to see both the actresses together after the two actresses had an exchange of tweets last week. In a pleasant exchange of tweets, Sonam Kapoor said she couldn’t wait to hang out with her.
Mahira Khan in her first interview to an international publication from Cannes she was thankful for this ‘incredible opportunity’.
“It’s such an honor and a privilege that I am able to come here and speak to everyone about my country, my culture, and my films. That’s so cool. The fact that we can all come here and meet — it lessens our differences and increases our similarities. People have asked me about what it’s like to work in Pakistan and abroad. It’s such a healthy cultural exchange” the actress said in the interview.
Her participation in the film festival is anticipated to uplift Pakistan’s film industry that is undergoing its revival.
“We are all growing… L’Oreal has been in Pakistan for a while, but they took time to be confident about bringing on a Pakistani ambassador and it took them time to be confident enough to bring me to Cannes … It’s a sign that our films are going global … So my presence here could be symbolic of Pakistani films being revived.
The actress since her arrival in Cannes is busy in photo shoots, interviews and other adjoining responsibilities of brand ambassadorship. She has been sharing the glance of these photo shoots on her Instagram account.
