Mumbai: It’s raining Bollywood this year at the Festival De Cannes.

Actresses Sonam Kapoor, Mallika Sherawat, Freida Pinto, Minisha Lamba and Cannes veteran Aishwarya Rai will also be seen dazzling at the red carpet.
While addressing a press meet in Mumbai on Thursday, Saif mentioned that he would be making his debut at the prestigious film festival this year. When asked which designer’s suit would he wear at the red carpet, Saif said, "Kareena has been telling me to get a Tom Ford suit for the red carpet and so I have finally got one."
The actor will be representing ‘Chivas’, a brand he endorses. The actor-producer wishes to showcase his films at the fest some day. "I am excited about attending the Cannes film festival, but I wish to showcase one of my films at the fest some day. If I have a film in the competition section, it will be the ideal occasion to attend the festival” said Saif.
Meanwhile, Anil Kapoor would be seen promoting his upcoming project ‘Cities’. Roger Donaldson-directed ‘Cities’ will be launched at the Cannes Market, which stars Clive Owens along with Kapoor.
