Soon after the videos went viral on social media, her fans were seen hailing the Queen. One of the fans commented, “the best #DeepikaAsCannesJury.” Another comment read, “Gorgeous #deepikapadukone ❤.”
Deepika was seen making heads turn as she opted for a Sabyasachi outfit for day 1. She rocked a printed shirt paired with green pants and a statement neckpiece. She tied her bun with a printed scarf, giving major boho vibes.
Before leaving for Cannes, the actress spoke to Bombay Times and talked about representing the county. She said, “After being an actor for 15 years, for your work to finally be recognised on a global platform such as this, and to be able to represent the country, obviously, there is a sense of gratitude and being extremely overwhelmed.”
