Cannes 2022: Rajasthani singer Mame Khan becomes first Indian folk artist to walk the red carpetAuthor: Yuvi May 18, 2022
Rajasthani singer Mame Khan created history at the 75th Cannes Film Festival by becoming the first folk artist to open the red carpet for India at an event held on Tuesday. Mame Khan was also part of the Indian delegation led by Minister of Information and Broadcasting Anurag Thakur. For the red carpet, Mame Khan wore a traditional Rajasthani outfit – a vibrant pink kurta set and teamed it with an embroidered blue jacket. Designed by Anjuli Chakraborty, she completed her look with traditional headgear and classy sunglasses. See the post below:
For the uninitiated, Mame Khan has sung several songs for Bollywood films, including No One Killed Jessica, Sonchiriya and Luck By Chance. In addition, she has acted in Coke Studio with Amit Trivedi.
This year all eyes are on India as it has been named the ‘Country of Honour’ at the Marche du Filmes (Cannes Film Market). Also, this year Bollywood star Deepika Padukone is one of the jury members. On Tuesday, the actress paired ace designer Sabyasachi’s golden-black shimmery sari with an off-shoulder sequin blouse. She upped her makeup game with kohl-rimmed eyes and dramatic eyeshadow. Check out her look below:
Apart from Deepika Padukone, Urvashi Rautela and Tamannaah Bhatia also added glamor in black and white outfits at the 75th Cannes Film Festival.
The 11-day long event will also see Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Pooja Hegde, Hina Khan, Helly Shah and others walking the red carpet. The event began with a grand opening on Tuesday and will end on May 28.
