With every passing day, we move a day closer to the much-awaited Cannes Film Festival—one of the most-eagerly awaited events of the year. Taking into account the excitement, that only seems to be increasing, we’ve got some good, in fact great news for you. Anushka Sharma, one of the most influential actors of her generation, is all set to make her debut. She will be seen participating in a celebration of women in cinema alongside Oscar winner, Kate Winslet. 

Having built an extensive body of work through her endeavours as an actor, producer and entrepreneur, Sharma continues to put her best foot forward changing how women are perceived and represented in cinema and society, as well as making a difference through her non-profit organisation. 

The news was confirmed by Emmanuel Lenain, the French ambassador to India. He revealed that he met the actress and her husband, cricketer Virat Kohli, before their trip.

Add to that, the actor, who’s the brand ambassador of L'Oreal, will be reportedly representing the brand, who are the Official Makeup Partner of the festival. Sharing her thoughts, she commented, “I am looking forward to represent L'Oreal Paris at the Cannes red carpet. I firmly believe that women must embrace their individuality with sheer confidence, and I feel truly aligned with the brand's key principles. This year's theme, 'Walk Your Worth', couldn't be more appropriate as it highlights the value of recognising and commemorating oneself. I'm happy to be a part of this progressive change towards inclusivity and to support millions of women all over the world to value and appreciate themselves. Together, let's celebrate self-worth in all its glory!"

The 76th edition of the Festival de Cannes, popularly known as the Cannes Film Festival, will be held from May 16-27.
