Cannes Film Festival this year will be graced by several eminent celebrities across the globe. The list includes a bunch of Indian celebrities like Anushka Sharma, Manushi Chhillar, Esha Gupta, Guneet Monga, and Vijay Varma to name a few.

Sharing her excitement about playing such an iconic role and representing India at Cannes, she went on to say, "Yes, you’ve heard right. I’ve officially signed and will be leading the Parveen Babi biopic as an actress. I’m truly grateful to Cannes Film Festival, as it's one of the most prestigious film festivals in the world and a significant career milestone."
