Rajkummar Rao On Cannes: “No Point In Criticising Celebration Of Glamour”

Rajkummar Rao Cannes

Rajkummar Rao believes that the Cannes festival celebrates both beauty and films, and that there is no point in criticising the people who do go to the festival. Rajkummar was responding to a recent comment by Shabana Azmi, that in her time Cannes was more about the films, than about the clothes the stars wore. 

Indian Express quotes Rajkummar Rao , “Yes… But there is no point in criticising that. Every film festival is different. I feel good to see Indian actors are going there, making their presence felt… It is fantastic. I see no point in criticising celebration of glamour.”


He added, “I think it is not only Indians but also people from all over the world are coming there, getting clicked and international media is praising it… There’s nothing wrong in that. And I also read articles about Nandita Das’s upcoming film Manto, they did a launch there. So you see, they are getting an exposure to our films as well, so why to criticise?”

Indian stars like Nandita Das, Aishwarya Rai, Sonam Kapoor and Deepika Padukone all walked the Cannes red carpet this year.
