Cannes celebrates South Asian excellence at Red Carpet

In the history of the 2023 Cannes festival, South Asian achievers were celebrated for their global dominance on the red carpet for the first time.

The one-of-its-kind effort saw Indian-origin entrepreneur and influencer Diipa Büller-Khosla join forces with women of influence and impact including global music sensation Raja Kumari and content creator and actress Dolly Singh to spotlight South Asian women from various walks of life who are paving the way for South Asian representation.

Heralding a milestone moment, the dynamic trio sashayed down the red carpet donning couture by Indian designers such as Gaurav Gupta, Tarun Tahiliani, Manish Malhotra in an effort to support Indian heirloom and heritage.

“I’m very pleased to have marked my maiden innings at Cannes with Diipa Büller-Khosla. I have always loved how she represents the South Asian community worldwide and is a fierce champion of representation just like myself. South Asians are truly taking over the world and this is our moment to shine!” Raja Kumari said.

While Büller-Khosla is a Cannes veteran who was the very first Indian influencer to have walked the red-carpet way back in 2018, Raja Kumari and Dolly Singh have marked their maiden innings at the festival this year.
