“I think it's important to promote 'Indianness'."

After making her debut at the Cannes Film Festival, Sara Ali Khan has returned to India and is busy promoting her upcoming film Zara Hatke Zara Bachke.

At the prestigious festival, Sara wore both Indian and Western outfits.

For her debut, she wore an ivory Abu Jani-Sandeep Khosla lehenga with two dupattas.

Another appearance saw her wear a strapless black gown with gold heart-shaped details that formed to create a large heart.

The floor-length dress accentuated her figure as she completed her look with minimal makeup and sleek hair.

Speaking about her Cannes appearance, Sara said:

“I think it’s important to promote ‘Indianness’.

“We are such a culturally rich country. We have so many languages, emotions and so much depth and I’m proud to be able to talk about it on a global platform.

“I was invited by the Indian pavilion (at Cannes) and I was also invited by the Red Sea Film Festival people who invited me there to celebrate women both behind the camera and in front of the camera.”

She stated that she got to represent the three aspects of her personality – woman, actor and Indian.

Sara added: “I got to represent all these aspects.”

At Cannes, Sara posed for pictures and spoke to the paparazzi.

She said: “It’s (outfit) a traditional and modern Indian handmade design by Abu and Sandeep (Khosla).

“I’ve always been proud of my Indianness. It embodies who I am, it’s fresh, it’s modern and also has traditional roots.”

The designers had spoken about Sara’s Cannes lehenga.

They said:

“Sara Ali Khan made her Cannes debut in an exquisite hand-embroidered multi-panel skirt.”

“The intricate shadow work embroidery, adorning each unique panel, showcases a mesmerising calendar of designs from our archives of couture down the years.

“Sara’s ensemble is a masterpiece of craftsmanship, with a resplendent blouse with intricate work in crystals, pearls, and resham work.

“Adding to the allure, the ensemble features two drapes in tulle—an enchanting one-shoulder drape and a long head veil.

“Both drapes boast the finest shadow work, with the head veil embellished with tiny shadow dots and intricate borders.”

On the work front, Sara Ali Khan has several films in the pipeline.

She has Ae Watan Mere Watan and Jagan Shakti’s untitled project. Sara also has Murder Mubarak, which is expected to release in 2024.
