Mumbai: Katrina Kaif, who made her debut at Cannes Film Festival last year, is skipping this year’s edition of the prestigious event due to her film commitments.
The 32-year-old “Fitoor” star walked the Cannes red carpet in a scarlett gown last year, earning praise for her look. “Cannes is a fabulous platform for any artist to attend, and I really enjoyed the experience last year. While the brand invited me to attend Cannes again this year, I have had to regretfully decline the opportunity due to prior commitments.
“This has been an enormously busy year for me so far, and I am working on some amazing projects which are really keeping me on my toes. Nevertheless, although I will be giving Cannes a miss this year, I wish the lovely L’Oreal Paris ambassadors who will proudly represent India the very best and hope to attend next year,” Kaif said in a statement.
The actress has recently wrapped up the shooting of her upcoming love story “Baar Baar Dekho” and is currently gearing up for the filming of sleuth drama “Jagga Jasoos” opposite former boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor.
The Cannes International Film Festival is scheduled to be held from May 11-21. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Sonam Kapoor will be representing the brand at event this year.
