New Delhi: Bollywood actress Katrina Kaif, who rocked the Cannes International Film Festival last year will unfortunately be skipping the prestigious event this year due to prior commitments.
Kat was quoted saying in a statement, ''Cannes is a fabulous platform for any artist to attend, and I really enjoyed the experience last year. While the brand invited me to attend Cannes again this year, I have had to regretfully decline the opportunity due to prior commitments.''
"This has been an enormously busy year for me so far, and I am working on some amazing projects which are really keeping me on my toes. Nevertheless, although I will be giving Cannes a miss this year, I wish the lovely L'Oreal Paris ambassadors who will proudly represent India the very best and hope to attend next year.''
The 'Fitoor' actress will next be seen in her upcoming flick 'Baar Baar Dekho' opposite Sidharth Malhotra and is gearing up for her next titled 'Jagga Jasoos' opposite alleged former boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor.
The former Miss World Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and 'Raanjhana' actress Sonam Kapoor will be representing beauty brand L'Oreal Paris as brand ambassadors in the Cannes International Film Festival, which is scheduled to be held from May 11-21.
