Deepika Padukone graced the red carpet with grace and elegance at the Cannes 2022 opening ceremony on Tuesday. Today, yet again, the Om Shanti Om actress chose another impressive outfit for the second day of the Cannes Film Festival. She is a part of the jury who will jointly decide which movie will take home the Palme d’Or. Now, at the inaugural India Pavilion at 75th Cannes Film Festival today, Deepika revealed that she is proud to represent India.

Deepika Padukone on being the jury

The actress said that she is very proud because it's not just the 75th year of Cannes, but it is also 75 years of India. Deepika revealed that she never expected to be a part of the jury. "Fifteen years ago, when I entered the industry, I don't think anyone had faith in me, my talent, or my craft. So 15 years later, to be a part of the jury and to be experiencing some of the best cinema in the world has been an incredible journey and I am truly grateful for that," said the actress.

Deepika also said that she believes that someday India will not be at the Cannes, but Cannes will be in India.
