ABOUT SCRUTINY OF FASHION CRITICS

Neerja su­per star is ex­cited about her ap­pear­ance at the Cannes Fes­ti­val this week

Un­fazed by the flak she re­ceived for her last year’s Cannes red car­pet out­ing, ac­tress Sonam Kapoor says she is not bothered about the scrutiny of fashion critics and is rather ex­cited about her ap­pear­ance at the fes­ti­val this week. Sonam’s Elie Saab feath­ery dress at the Cannes be­came the cen­tre of memes on the so­cial me­dia, whereas, her other ap­pear­ances were ap­pre­ci­ated.

“I con­cen­trate on pos­i­tive al­ways. I don’t pay heed to neg­a­tiv­ity or crit­i­cism sur­round­ing my ap­pear­ance. I am pretty ex­cited about my sixth out­ing at Cannes I am look­ing for­ward to it. I am al­ways ex­cited to go to a plat­form, which is so in­ter­na­tional,” Sonam told PTI.

The “Neerja” star, 30, said though she has not de­cided on her out­fits yet she will surely show­case eth­nic el­e­ments in her styling. “I haven’t thought about the dresses yet. I am go­ing to do the fit­tings next week. It de­pends on what I am try­ing to fig­ure out with it but I would al­ways have some In­dian el­e­ment.” Sonam will be mak­ing her red car­pet ap­pear­ance on May 16 and 17 apart from an­other In­dian beauty, Aish­warya Rai Bachchan, who cel­e­brates her 15 years at the fes­ti­val. Ka­t­rina Kaif, who made her de­but at Cannes last year, will give a miss to the gala event as the ac­tress is busy with her “prior com­mit­ments”. Be­sides the cov­eted out­ings, Sonam wishes to watch some in­ter­na­tional films and meet some renowned cin­ema per­son­al­i­ties at the fes­ti­val. “I would love to watch a cou­ple of films. It’s a place where you get to see many films all over the world. But my sched­ule de­pends on the time I have.

I con­cen­trate on pos­i­tive al­ways. I don’t pay heed to neg­a­tiv­ity or crit­i­cism sur­round­ing my ap­pear­ance. Sonam Kapoor Bollywood ac­tress
