"A little piece of my heart from Cannes."
Aditi Rao Hydari opted for a Sabyasachi saree as she made her debut at the Cannes Film Festival 2022.
The actress, who has been a part of the Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, and Malayalam film industry in India, joined the 75th annual Cannes Film Festival on May 20, 2022.
Aditi Rao Hydari took to her Instagram account to share pictures of her look and said that her ‘ammaamma’ (grandmother) would be proud of her.
She wrote alongside pictures of her posing on a staircase: “My ammaamma would be proud (heart emoji) Simplicity and tradition in my favourite @sabyasachiofficial.”
The pictures showed her wearing a hand-dyed and embroidered ivory organza sari, which she paired with an emerald and diamond choker from Sabyasachi Jewellery’s Bengal Royale Collection.
This marks the second time a Sabyasachi outfit has been spotted at the 2022 festival.
Deepika Padukone wore a retro saree by the designer on the opening day of the festival.
Aditi Rao Hydari shared more pictures in the outfit on her Instagram account, along with a reel that showed her in different locations in Cannes.
She set the reel to her rendition of ‘Snehidane x Chupke Se’ and asked others to try singing the track as well.
She captioned it: “A little piece of my heart from Cannes. Make your own version of this audio and tag me.”
Aditi’s fans and her friends from the entertainment industry showered love on her look and her voice.
Patralekhaa wrote “Ati Sundar (too beautiful),” while Huma Qureshi commented with a red heart emoji.
Manisha Koirala wrote, “Stunning,” adding a fire emoji.
Aditi Rao Hydari revealed to Hindustan Times that she was supposed to make her Cannes debut earlier than this, but it got postponed because of the Covid-19 lockdown.
She said: “I am now going this year, I have a packed schedule because I am doing various things.
“I am looking forward to it. I am constantly telling myself ‘remember growing up you saw a dream of being at Cannes, being in films, of experiencing this magical thing’.
“I am just telling myself to go there and feel that.”
“I really just want to be in the moment, take in every bit of the magic that I am surrounded by.”
Aditi Rao Hydari was last seen in the Tamil film Hey Sinamika, which also starred Dulquer Salmaan and Kajal Aggarwal.
She will be next seen in Gandhi Talks and Jubilee.
