This year, Indian films like Anurag Kashyap's Raman Raghav 2.0 starring Nawazuddin and Vicky Kaushal, and Kabir Bedi-narrated documentary Mount of Excellence will be screened. Six Bengali short films including Anirban Guha's Elixir and Abhiroop Basu's Afternoon with Julia will also be screened at Cannes
The film stars Ranvir Shorey, Amit Sial and newcomer Shashank Arora
Indian stars went a little overboard in projecting the ethnic, oriental look at the Cannes red carpet that saw Sonam Kapoor, Vidya Balan and Sherlyn Chopra either going big on bling or heavy on jewellery and embroidery.
The Opening Ceremony of the 66th Festival de Cannes saw many international stars walk up the red carpet at the famous Grand Theatre Lumiere in Cannes. Many Indians were also present.
