Cannes Film Fest: Raja Kumari, Dolly Singh to debut at Diipa Khosla hosted South Asian Red Carpet Walk

For the first time ever in the history of the Cannes Film Festival, there will be an exclusive red carpet walk curated by an entrepreneur-influencer of Indian origin and dedicated towards celebrating South Asian excellence. 

Curated by leading global lifestyle influencer, activist and beauty entrepreneur, Diipa Büller-Khosla, who is the very first Indian creator to have attended the festival way back in 2018, the red-carpet walk at the 76th edition of cinema’s most iconic event, Cannes Film Festival 2023 will mark the first time in the history of the festival that South Asian influencers will be honored and celebrated for their global dominance. 

The collaborative effort will see Diipa Büller-Khosla joining forces with women of influence and impact such as global music sensation Raja Kumari and content creator and actress Dolly Singh to honor and celebrate South Asian women from various walks of life who are paving the way for future generations. 

Heralding a milestone moment, the dynamic trio will walk the red carpet on the evening of the 24th of May 2023 wearing Indian designers and supporting the homegrown concept of Ayurvedistry and Indian heirloom and heritage. 

Diipa Büller-Khosla states, “I am extremely pleased to join forces with these female self-starters who are leading the change in fashion, entrepreneurship, media and entertainment. This initiative not only reiterates my long-established affiliation with the world’s biggest film festival, but also emphasizes India’s growing relevance and presence in the global entertainment and fashion industry. It’s a moment of South Asian pride for me!” 

Dolly Singh states, My Cannes visit will come to a full circle with this South Asian red carpet walk. Diipa has truly impacted the South Asian community worldwide and I’m super excited to be walking for her. 

Raja Kumari states, I’m very ecstatic to be marking my maiden innings at Cannes with Diipa. I have always loved how she represents the South Asian community worldwide and is a fierce champion of representation just like myself.  

While Diipa Büller-Khosla is a Cannes veteran, Raja Kumari and Dolly Singh will be marking their maiden innings at the festival this year.
