Indian actress Vidya Balan will represent India at the upcoming Cannes Film Festival. The Bollywood star has been invited to join the jury composed Japanese director Naomi Kawase; Lynne Ramsay, the Scottish director of We Need to Talk About Kevin; French actor/director Daniel Auteuil and Romanian director Cristian Mungiu.
Balan said that she’ll be wearing a Sabyasachi sari to the festival. “Definitely, there’s no other way to go about it, I love Indian saris and it’s going to be Sabyasachi,” she said, referring to the top Indian designer. “To be an Indian women’s representative is also special.”
