Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - FRONT PAGE -

Ac­tor Deepika Padukone (left), who walked the red car­pet at the 70th Cannes Film Fes­ti­val this year, says though In­dian cin­ema has gone be­yond song-dance saga, for a large in­ter­na­tional au­di­ence it is still about the cul­tural re­flec­tion of larger than life char­ac­ters.

“I think in­ter­na­tion­ally the per­cep­tion of In­dian cin­ema is about colour, cul­ture, song, dance, that gran­deur and scale. For them, it is still about larger than life char­ac­ters. Hav­ing said that, there are movie lovers who are well versed with our cin­ema which is be­yond that,” she says. Deepika walked the red car­pet at Cannes on May 17 and 18. Since there is no In­dian film screen­ing at the fes­ti­val, She says: “It is un­for­tu­nate that this year there is no In­dian film to show. But I’m sure it will hap­pen in the fu­ture for sure.”

The ac­tor who has an im­pres­sive fil­mog­ra­phy in In­dian cin­ema with films like Piku (2015), Ba­ji­rao Mas­tani (2015) has won in­ter­na­tional ac­claim with xXx: Re­turn of Xan­der Cage ear­lier this year. “I would have loved to show Piku here. I am re­ally proud of the film,” she adds.
