However, the Cannes regulars are not the only Indians expected to bring the glamour at Cannes Film Festival 2022. Deepika and Aishwarya will reportedly be joined by TV actors Hina Khan and Helly Shah, along with many sought-after South Indian film actors, like Nayanthara, Pooja Hegde, Aditi Rao Hydari, and Tamannaah Bhatia, at the annual celebration of cinema. While Hina attended the 72nd Cannes Film Festival in 2019, Helly, Pooja, Nayanthara, Tamannaah and Aditi will be making their Cannes debut in 2022.
The 11-day festival is slated to begin on May 17 and run through May 28. Despite the pandemic, and the Covid-19 safety procedures, the 2021 edition of the festival managed to gather a larger number film stars, after Cannes 2020 was called off following a series of postponements.
Ahead, take a look at the Indian celebrities who are going to go all out with their looks at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival.
