Sara’s experience in Cannes
Speaking with India Today, the actor shared what she learnt from her first Cannes experience, “I think I learnt that every country has their own culture. Of course, we know this, but seeing it being celebrated.. I was with actors from Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Lebanon, Paris, I even met Leonardo DiCaprio. I think ultimately despite all our national differences, in terms of regions, the passion that we all feel is the same. Truly, it shows me how cinema transcends all kinds of nationalistic boundaries.”
She also added that she would have loved to walk the red carpet with another Hollywood star. She said, “I think right now Vicky Kaushal is the only one I’ll say though you said Hollywood, but Ryan Gosling. Main hamesha aise hi karti hoon, main sahi jawaab deke bol hi deti hoon (I always do this, I say the exactly what I am thinking)!”
