Cannes festival has been bringing together the world of cinema and fashion for many years. And throughout these years Bollywood celebrities have walked the red carpet of the French Riviera to rub shoulders with international icons when it comes to fashion.
Unfortunately owing to COVID-19 pandemic unlike most years, India has only one film in the official selection this year. Invisible Demons, a documentary film by Rahul Jain on Delhi’s struggle with pollution.
