Did This Filmmaker Just Mock Actresses Walking The Red Carpet At Cannes?

Cannes Film Festival, which takes place every year at Cannes, (France) previews new films of all genres, including documentaries, from all around the world and has celebrities from across the globe attend.

However, looks like the buzz surrounding who wore what at the red carpet has not gone down well with Hum Tum producer-director, Kunal Kohli.

He took to Twitter to slam this culture in multiple tweets.

His first tweet read, “I feel #Cannes should have 2 sections. 1 where film makers meet, interact showcase their films. 1 where there’s just red carpets leading to nowhere. Where people dress up, pose,pout,showcase their clothes & fashion sense.#Cannes2018 #CannesFilmFestival2018 (sic).”

The second one said, “Do all the people who dress up and pose on the red carpet go and watch any films in their gowns? I would love to be proved wrong. I feel they just walk the red carpet.Pose for photographers. Head back to their designer teams to plan the next red carpet walk. Quite cool actually (sic).”

He further wrote, “Hence my initial tweet of 2 sections at #Cannes I really think that’s a great suggestion. What say? (sic).

Meanwhile, of the Bollywood actresses who attending the festival, we have already seen Deepika Padukone, Kangana Ranaut, Huma Qureshi and Mallika Sherawat make an appearance.

Aishwarya Rai left for Cannes last night with daughter Aaradhya in tow and will be seen walking the red carpet tomorrow and day after.

Newlywed Sonam Kapoor will attend the festival on May 14 and 15.

Over to Kunal’s tweets, we wonder what actresses have to say about his opinion.
