Yes, We Cannes!

If you were a 90’s kid like me, you couldn’t have missed a pop-song called Made in India. (Especially if you had a crush on Milind Soman, like most teenage girls in the day did!)

…even when it came to faces on the global scene, the only faces we saw were foreign women. At award shows. At beauty pageants. At film festivals like Cannes.

Fast forward twenty years later, it’s 2022, and things have changed. At least, with regards to the stereotypical image of the typical Indian woman. And what it means for other Indian women like me. And you.

For me, seeing our very own Deepika Padukone make it to the jury was a rather proud moment.

And Cannes was just one instance. Look around, and you’ll see Indian women taking the global stage by storm, wherever they go. And not just fitting in, rather standing out. Priyanka Chopra is India’s most successful Bollywood to Hollywood transport. CEO Indra Nooyi has ruled the roost at PepsiCo for over two decades. Filmmakers like Deepa Mehta now make films for a global audience. And the list goes on.
