While everyone could not stop talking about Deepika Padukone, Sonam Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s stunning red carpet looks at the 70th Cannes Film Festival, other Indian actresses were slaying the red carpet.
Shruti Haasan made her third and final Cannes 2017 appearance at the premiere of How to Talk to Girls at Parties. After doing two appearances for her film Sangamithra, Shruti attended the premiere as a special guest of celebrated British novelist – Neil Gaiman – who wrote the short story that was the film’s inspiration.
An insider said, “Neil Gaiman has been one of Shruti’s all time favorite novelists. She’s followed his work extensively and they had a chance to connect a short while ago over Twitter. They met in LA and stayed in touch via mails and messages. When Neil realized Shruti was in Cannes, he was thrilled and invited her to attend the premiere of the film as one of his special guests. She was delighted to go be a part of his big celebration and attended the premiere on May 21.”
Talking about attending the premiere on Neil’s invitation, Shruti Haasan said, “I was super happy to be invited for the film. Neil is my favourite writer and I loved the film as well.”
Moving from her desi avatar at the red carpet, Shruti Haasan sported yet another black look in a Valentino ensemble. She paired it up with Chopard jewellery, Christian Louboutin shoes and clutch. She was styled by Shreeja Rajgopal with hair and makeup by Tarryn Kelly.
