Anupam Kher says “unknown” Indians are now receiving the “highest honours” at Cannes, praising Payal Kapadia and Anasuya Sengupta.

Anupam Kher has talked on how content-driven films are becoming more popular. The seasoned actor talked about how “unknown” people are suddenly becoming well-known in an interview with News18 Showsha. He cited Delhi influencer Nancy Tyagi, who made a great red carpet debut at Cannes 2024.

Take a look at what occurred in Cannes

Anupam discussed recent films that garnered recognition for their performances and storytelling, including Diljit Dosanjh’s Chamkila and Kiran Rao’s Laapata Ladies, in light of All We Imagine As Light’s Grand Prix win at the Cannes Film Festival in 2024. Content is crucial in today’s world, according to Anupam. Though the audience has changed, it has always been that way. Actor Anasuya Sengupta and filmmaker Payal Kapadia, two unknowns, won the top prizes at Cannes. Take a look at what transpired. It’s incredible.

The actor said, “A Delhi girl walked on the red carpet stitching her own dress,” in reference to Nancy Tyagi. The globe has always been open to creativity, but this is especially true in India. Anything that doesn’t resonate with people doesn’t matter. You cannot make the audience feel smaller in order to dwarf them. They are accustomed to everything, including large cinema theatres, malls, and contemporary India. “Dekho hum apko Switzerland leke jaa rahe hai” is no longer acceptable. Well, that’s not the case at all. Agar achha hua toh choti film bhi chalegi aur badi bhi par content agar ‘Look, we are sending you to Switzerland’ ain’t no big deal. If a short movie is well done, even it can function. I believe that fakery is coming to an end.

Indians who dazzled at Cannes 2024

Payal Kapadia received the Grand Prix, the festival’s second-highest accolade, for All We Imagine As Light during the 77th edition of the Cannes Film Festival’s closing ceremony. It was an iconic moment in Indian film history. Additionally, the Un Certain Regard section prizes were revealed one day prior to the closing ceremony.

There were two Indian films that competed: The Shameless, directed by Konstantin Bojanov of Bulgaria, and Santosh, a police drama starring Shahana Goswami, from Sandhya Suri. The Shameless star Anasuya Sengupta made history by being the first Indian actor to win an acting award. The jury selected her as the Best Actress.

Furthermore, Chidananda S. Naik, a student at FTII, directed the Kannada short film Sunflowers Were The First Ones To Know, which was named the La Cinef Award winner for Best Short Film.

Furthermore, actress Sonam Kapoor, who is renowned for her fashion choices and numerous noteworthy Cannes red carpet appearances over the years, was impressed with Delhi-based fashion blogger Nancy Tyagi’s red carpet look at the Cannes Film Festival 2024, which garnered media attention. Sonam recently reposted Nancy’s Instagram Reel, which included her stylish saree ensemble.

Sonam praised Nancy, stating, “Best outfit in Cannes,” after choosing her homemade ensemble over Aishwarya Rai and Kiara Advani’s Cannes 2024 ensembles. With that, she asked Nancy to create an outfit for her, adding, “Make me something @nancytyagi__.”

Dolly Singh on her “love-hate” relation with her physical appearance

Actress and content producer Dolly Singh recently talked about her weight swings and image worries in an Instagram post. She has since acknowledged that she is still working on accepting her body as it is and that there are still days when she stays away from others in order to avoid hearing criticism of her fluctuations in weight.

Dolly revealed in an Instagram post how people make fun of her weight. Her house is not one of the few individuals or places, she claimed, where she feels safe enough to be herself.

Relationship between hate and love
“Like everybody else, I’ve had a journey with my body of accepting it, not accepting it, Hating it and loving it and all of that,” she says when explaining why she decided to share the picture. I believe that I was just thinking about something when I decided to post about it at this particular moment. I recently lost a lot of weight, which is very normal for me because I usually gain less weight than I lose. Of course, this also brings scrutiny because my weight fluctuates like everyone else’s, and I suddenly realised that I was avoiding some people because I felt that my new weight or appearance will not invite great things from them or they will not be welcoming it maybe, wonder how safe space in the scenario is so important, it’s only a few people in your life that really let you be and enjoy and don’t make everything about how you look and your weight and everything else so I felt sad”. 

I felt certain that many others would be in a similar situation, therefore it was also something I wanted to discuss. “I decided to share it through my Instagram post,” the actor continued. Thank You For Coming is his most recent Bollywood blockbuster.

Continuous journey
Dolly, who rose to stardom on social media, acknowledges that she is still working on coming to terms with her physical appearance.

It has been a long journey, similar to every woman’s, she recalls. “It took me many years to really come to terms with the way I am, accept it if not love it,” she says. “Obviously, as a kid, you don’t really know, and then suddenly you’re very aware of how you look and how people perceive you and that you don’t meet the beauty standards.”

If I’m being absolutely honest, I believe that my true sense of contentment with my identity and appearance didn’t exist until I was around 25 or 26. Although the majority of days are wonderful, there are still bad ones. I think social media has definitely helped me a lot, she adds. “And honestly, I actually owe it to people on the Internet who follow me and say nice things because it has given me such a confidence boost and people who constantly put out such body positive content,” she says.

Not a simple procedure
In this passage, Dolly acknowledges that her journey towards self-acceptance has not been easy.

When asked about her greatest struggle, she responds, “I think the hardest part is to keep doing it and keep reminding yourself that what you have is great and of course you can be fitter and whatever your goal maybe, but that doesn’t mean that what you have right now, the body that is providing for you, is doing any less, or you should be hating it.” She also says that she has had to constantly pick herself up from pieces because it’s not like once you start loving yourself there are no bad days.

“Even though others may say otherwise, I think it’s difficult to constantly remind yourself that that’s not how it is,” she adds. “Because sometimes I try to look at my body as a friend and that’s when I start feeling bad for how I treat it sometimes or how I say mean things to it sometimes.”

When you ask her if she feels totally at ease with your body right now, Dolly says, “It’s a journey..And while it might be a rollercoaster, I believe that as we get older and wiser, navigating the changing ways our bodies and skin look has become simpler, but the journey never ends.
