Rare honor to Pooja Hegde

Pooja Hegde : The sultry-siren Pooja Hegde who is riding with successive blockbusters has another good news. She is all set to represent India at the Cannes Film Festival this year. Pooja Hegde will be flying on May 16th and will be presenting the after-party that hosts the most celebrated stars across the globe.

Reacting to this, she said, “First and foremost I am so proud that India will be the country of honour, this year, at the Marche’ Du Film at the Cannes Film Festival. Our country has a rich history at the festival, which stems back to Chetan Anand’s ‘Neecha Nagar’ winning the top prize at the festival in 1946. I strongly believe in the power of cinema and stories to overcome language, geographic and cultural barriers.”

“Cannes represents a unique celebration of those barriers being removed – through the coming together of Film, Culture and Fashion. The opportunity to be attending and representing India is one I will always cherish and hope to continue to do so for the rest of my life.”

On the work front, Pooja Hegde will be next seen in Salman Khan’s Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali along with Mahesh Babu’s movie directed by Trivikram Srinivas.
