Superstar Shah Rukh Khan recalled the time when he represented Indian cinema with Devdas in Cannes in 2002. He says he hopes to bring more beautiful cinema from the country to the French Riviera.
According to reports, Shah Rukh Khan was in Cannes to attend a big fat wedding.
"At Cannes after years memories come flooding back of Devdas. Insha Allah will come here to represent India with more beautiful films," Shah Rukh posted on Twitter.
Devdas was screened at a special out-of-competition screening at the Cannes International Film Festival in 2002. Over the years, the presence of Indian films and celebrities has increased at the global film extravaganza, which is usually held in May every year.
The Bollywood Badshah, along with other film celebrities including Tusshar Kapoor, is reportedly in Cannes for the wedding of Kunal Grover, son of British socialite Pamela Grover, with Ria Dubash.
Pamela is said to be friends with Bollywood celebs like Shah Rukh Khan and his wife Gauri, Rakesh Roshan, Neetu and Rishi Kapoor among others.
For Tusshar, it was his first time in Cannes.
"In Cannes now for a big fat Indian destination wedding, both for the first time! Still getting used to all the paraphernalia! (spelt correct?)," he tweeted.
