A tech­ni­cal snag at the screen­ing of Okja struck a dis­cor­dant note at the third day at Cannes

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - HT City | Entertainment -

The third day of Cannes Film Fes­ti­val saw an un­usual glitch dur­ing the screen­ing of the film Okja. How­ever, the stun­ning ap­pear­ances of celebs seemed to over­shadow ev­ery­thing.

Don­ning el­e­gant gowns and dap­per suits ac­tors walked the red car­pet. Though the screen­ing of the Net­flix se­ries, di­rected by Boon Joon-ho, brought to­gether stars like Ri­hanna, Lily Collins, Jake Gyl­len­haal and Bella Ha­did, a tech­ni­cal er­ror at the screen­ing damp­ened the ex­cite­ment. The author­i­ties at Cannes took re­spon­si­bil­ity for the dis­rup­tion and is­sued a state­ment that said, “This in­ci­dent was en­tirely the re­spon­si­bil­ity of the fes­ti­val’s tech­ni­cal ser­vice, which of­fers its apolo­gies to the di­rec­tor and his team, to the pro­duc­ers and the au­di­ence.” While singer Ri­hanna made her red car­pet de­but in a pris­tine white gown paired with a white jacket, model Bella Ha­did, went for a quilted red gown, pair­ing it with a snake sil­ver neck piece. Ac­tor and jury mem­ber Jes­sica Chas­tain, wear­ing a lilac gown, be­came the per­fect muse for the shut­ter­bugs. Ac­com­pa­nied by com­poser A R Rah­man, ac­tor Shruti Haasan made her sec­ond red car­pet ap­pear­ance for her film Sangamithra.
