Sonam, Mahira share warmth at Cannes

Khaleej Times - City Times - - YOUR DAILY DOSE OF BOLLYWOOD -

ART HAS A uni­fy­ing power, and prov­ing it at the 71st Cannes Film Fes­ti­val were Bol­ly­wood ac­tress Sonam Kapoor and Pak­istani ac­tress Mahira Khan who shared a warm mo­ment greet­ing each other and dis­play­ing bon­homie on Mon­day.

Both the ac­tresses walked the red car­pet for cos­met­ics gi­ant L’Oreal Paris, but be­fore they stepped out, they shared a warm mo­ment to­gether - as seen in a pho­to­graph do­ing the rounds on so­cial me­dia. Sonam is seen plant­ing a kiss on Mahira’s fore­head.

“Can’t wait to hang out with you at Cannes,” Sonam had ear­lier tweeted to Mahira, who has made her de­but at the gala this time.

For her first red car­pet look at Cannes, Sonam looked ra­di­ant and re­splen­dent in a dreamy and del­i­cate pas­tel-hued Ralph and Russo lehenga en­sem­ble, with her hair loosely tied in a braid and ac­ces­sorised with a de­tailed ‘parandi’.

She wore sim­ple ear­rings by Chopard, and the in­tri­cate henna de­sign still adorned the hands of the ac­tress, who mar­ried long­time beau Anand Ahuja just last week.

“Wear­ing a dress that feels like it’s made of starlight,” Sonam posted on In­sta­gram.

She cap­tioned an­other im­age: “Moon­beams and Mediter­ranean dreams”, with a third pho­to­graph ti­tled: “All the stars are out tonight.”

Mahira, on the other hand, wore a black off-shoul­der dress af­ter the en­sem­ble she was due to wear got stuck at the cus­toms and didn’t turn up in time.

“I’m ner­vous,” she wrote be­fore mak­ing her red car­pet de­but, but her con­fi­dent de­meanour was a head-turner at the gala, where she and Sonam walked one af­ter an­other.

Mahira ded­i­cated her rep­re­sen­ta­tion at Cannes as an “ode to the peo­ple I have loved so much .... and have in­spired me since I was a lit­tle girl. Start­ing from my Ama to Mi­naal and Rooha... down to all my girls back home in Pak­istan”.
