Freida Pinto’s heading to Cannes
While there have been speculations about Freida attending the festival, her spokesperson sets the record straight. “Freida Pinto will be attending and walking the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival to be held from 16 to 27 May this year. This will be her second time at Cannes. She will be there supporting the brand she endorses. She is looking forward to the festival this year and hopes to have a good time.”
While the day on which Freida makes her appearance is yet to be decided, sources close to her insist that she will be walking the red carpet on May 17. The actor, who is currently in Los Angeles,will fly to Cannes directly from there.
However, contrary to reports that suggest that boyfriend, actor Dev Patel will accompany her to the film festival, sources say that she will be making a solo appearance. “Freida would have loved to have Dev accompany her, but unfortunately that is not possible. Dev is busy with his commitments, and can’t adjust his dates for Cannes. And since Freida is the face of the brand, she will walk the red carpet alone.”
