Mumbai, May 7: Bollywood actor Aditi Rao Hydari is all set to make her debut at Cannes Film Festival 2022.
Aditi will represent smartphone brand Vivo India at the film festival's 75th edition. "I am excited and thrilled to walk the red carpet of the Cannes Film Festival to represent the brand and India on the global stage. As an artist myself, being a part of a prestigious institution that celebrates cinema is an exhilarating feeling," she said about her debut.
Apart from Aditi, Deepika Padukone will also attend Cannes 2022 as a jury member.
The 75th Cannes Film Festival will take place from May 17 to May 26, and the organisers have decided to remove Covid-19 restrictions. They will not be testing guests, as they did last year, and there will be no mask requirement.
"Since the health pass is no longer in application in France, guests will not have to show proof of testing or vaccination to enter the Palais," Cannes general secretary Francois Desrousseaux said.
"Most participants will likely be vaccinated anyway because France has made it very complicated for non-vaccinated travellers to enter the country.," he further added.
