Ameesha Patel is excited about walking the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival. Her upcoming film ‘Shortcut Romeo’ which also stars Neil Nitin Mukesh and Puja Gupta will be premiering at the prestigious film festival on 22nd May at the French Riviera. To have the perfect look on the day, Ameesha has teamed up with Manish Malhotra and plans to have a desi look.
Commenting on her preparations for Cannes, Ameesha says, “It is a huge honor for me to be representing our cinema at Cannes. I am not going there as a brand ambassador. I am going there for my movie and that is a big deal. Manish and I have decided that since I am representing the country on a global platform, it would be perfect to be dressed in something that’s truly desi. Nothing looks better on an Indian woman than a sari or lehenga. I have to walk the red carpet in the morning and the premiere is at night, so there will be two outfits.”
Talking about Ameesha’s look, Manish says, “Keeping in mind Ameesha’s complexion and personality, we have given her something very Indian, yet ‘red carpetish’. Black and white, being classic colours, have been incorporated in her outfit that is high on Kashmiri and Chikankari work. We have also kept in mind the summer trends internationally.”
Shortcut Romeo is directed by Susi Ganesh and will release on 21st June, 2013.
