Actress Pooja Hegde will be making her debut at the annual Cannes Film Festival this year while also representing the country.
The 'Radhe Shyam' actress took off to France on Monday and just before entering the airport, she got a rather sweet surprise from her fans, who are equally excited for her Cannes debut.
In a video that is going viral on the internet, a bunch of fans can be seen waiting at the airport for Pooja with a poster reading, "Heartfelt congratulations and all the best, Pooja Hegde, representing India at Cannes Film Festival 2022."
They also presented her with a bouquet and wished her luck for her Cannes debut.
The actress was visibly surprised and overwhelmed on seeing the gesture from her fans. She can be heard exclaiming "Oh my God!" in disbelief as she hugged them and clicked pictures with them.
