The hand-embroidered bodice is made of pearls and crystals. The pearl collar added a statement to the outfit and made her look divine.
In an interview at Cannes, Deepika commented on her duties as a critic and jury. She said: “I think we all know it’s a huge responsibility. But, I think, we also promised each other yesterday that we’re not going to take this responsibility. I think the idea is to remind myself those viewers, or the ones who grow up watching movies and inspired children.”
She also spoke to a leading publication, where she revealed that she was initially taken aback by the invitation to be a jury member.She said: “They [the festival management] There seems to be no doubt about the reasons for their decision. It made me sit back and think that sometimes I might not have given myself enough credit. “
