Mumbai, May 11: Actress Mallika Sherawat has expressed happiness at seeing more Indian faces at international film events like the Cannes Film Festival in France.
Before leaving for Cannes, Sherawat told media here: “I think it is great that more and more Bollywood actresses are going to Cannes and representing India. More power to all the actresses in Bollywood.”
Besides Sherawat, actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, who has starred in films like ‘Bride and Prejudice’, ‘Pink Panther 2′, and ‘Mistress of Spices’ has also been the face of Bollywood films at Cannes since many years.
Bollywood celebrities like actresses Sonam Kapoor, Minissha Lamba, Rani Mukherjee, actor Saif Ali Khan and filmmaker Karan Johar are also attending the festival this year.
It is Sherawat’s third visit to Cannes Film Festival, where the cast and crew of her film, ‘Politics of Love’, would join her.
She looked thrilled about her film’s screening at the festival.
“I think after Cannes, the Oscars, President Barack Obama and now going to Cannes, it is the third step. I am keeping my fingers crossed; wish me luck,” said Sherawat.
‘Politics of Love’ also stars Loretta Devine and Brien J. White, and is a romantic comedy spun around U.S. President Barack Obama’s election campaign.
The actress, known for her flamboyant roles in Bollywood flicks, has earlier made appearances at Cannes for her English-Hindi crossover films, ‘Hiss’ and ‘The Myth’, opposite Hollywood star Jackie Chan. (ANI)
