Mumbai, May 6 (IANS) This is her third year at the Cannes International Film Festival and actress Sonam Kapoor plans to make a style statement in an Indian outfit at the red carpet there.

Starting May 15, the event will see screenings of three Indian movies: ““Monsoon Shootout”,” “”Bombay Talkies”” and ““Dabba”.” India is this year’s guest country, and Bollywood actress Vidya Balan will be a member of the jury panel.

To enhance the Indian flavour of the festival’s 66th edition even further, Sonam plans to hit the red carpet in a desi look.

“I always walk two red carpets for Cannes and make it a point to wear an Indian outfit on at least one occasion. I had previously worn Masaba Gupta and Anamika. I will wear an Indian outfit for sure for one or both the red carpet events,” Sonam told reporters here in Mumbai at the unveiling of the L’Or sunset collection.

“This is my third year at Cannes. I am excited to be walking the red carpet in the opening ceremony,” she added.

Freida Pinto and Aishwarya Rai will also walk the red carpet this year.

“All three of us represent India and we will not compete on who looks better among us. We have Indian skin and use Indian makeup, so if we compare it with white skin, neither sides will win,” said the 27-year-old star of films like “Delhi-6” and “Aisha.”

Talking about Indian clothes, the actress said: “I don’t think Indian clothes or makeup is subtle. I think Indian women like the whole idea of being made up. Indian girls love the drama.”

India’s film industry marks 100 years in business this year.
