Nandita Das shared old pictures from Cannes Film Festival.

Nandita shared her pictures clicked from her Cannes days with several celebrities like Divya Dutta, Rasika Dugal, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Javier Bardem and Salma Hayek. She wrote in the caption, ‘Sadly, I am missing Cannes this year. Sometimes people forget that this is not a festival of clothes but of films.

“Given that I can’t show you the amazing films I saw or the conversations I had or take you back in time when Manto premiered. Here are some images through the years at Cannes And only in sarees are there much buzz about ‘celebrities wearing saris at Cannes’. Well, this is definitely my favorite outfit. Simple, elegant and Indian. Least fussy – entering and leaving Exiting is easy!

“There’s an interesting story behind each image but too long to share. So feel free to make up your own story from the pictures you see. And guess what year they’re from – 2005, 20013, 2016-2018,” He finished the post.

Nandita’s post comes less than a day after filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri targeted people at Cannes. “Did you know the Cannes Film Festival is all about the movies? I thought I’d remind you in case you’re thinking it’s a fashion show,” she tweeted on Saturday.

Agreeing with him, actor Meera Chopra commented, “It’s very sad, I said the same thing when I went there last year.. that it has become a fashion parade. Bollywood only talks about it.” What are you wearing and you are all being covered in the media to such an extent that it becomes stressful. Trust me it is not the same for other countries. They are crazy about fashion and public relations like us. Not done!”

Many celebs were seen walking the red carpet in Cannes this year. From Aishwarya Rai to Sara Ali Khan, Mrunal Thakur, Manushi Chhillar, Esha Gupta and Diana Penty, several actors grabbed headlines with their fashion choices. Richa Chadha, Ali Fazal, Urvashi Rautela, Sapna Choudhary, Aman Gupta of Shark Tank and Kumar Sanu’s singer daughter Shannon were also seen at the festival.
