Airport Pics: Deepika Padukone returns from Cannes


After packing all the wonderful memories of Cannes, Deepika Padukone finally returns to India. She looks quite content and smiled all the way as she made her exit from the airport.

Deepika walked the red carpet as the brand ambassador of L’Oreal Paris and she sizzled in green gown with high thigh-silt.

At the event, Deepika rubbed shoulder with Hollywood biggies like Julianne Moore, Susan Sarandon and Elle Fanning, when the actress was asked about her feelings to be with Hollywood biggies, she replied, I always wanted to meet Julianne Moore. When I saw “Still Alice”, it blew my mind. Even today, some of those scenes and that performance haunts me, and maybe because it dealt with a mental illness, and that’s something very close to my heart and something that I relate to, that’s probably why, but I think it was just so pure and so well done. But more than that, she’s just such a pure soul, she’s so warm and lovely, and two days have almost come to an end, and it’s just been so amazing”.

“I got a very warm welcome from Julianne Moore and Susan Sarandon, both of them, such amazing women, such strong, powerful, intelligent women, but also so kind, so gentle. We met first thing at 7 in the morning the other day, we were all there, getting our hair and make-up done, and I think what I enjoyed the most is that, there’s the film star, but then there’s the woman in all of us, and in that room it was just us three women, giggling and chatting and just having a real moment and I think that’s something I’ll always cherish”, she added.

The diva feels unfortunate that less Indian films get space at Cannes.

She said, “It’s unfortunate that there are less Indian films showcased here, yes. We’ve had some amazing years, but it would have been nice, not just a Hindi movie, but for any movie to come here. But I’m sure it’ll happen, we can’t be so hard on ourselves, but it’ll happen when it has to happen”.

On the work front, Deepika Padukone would resume the shooting of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Padmavati’.
