Allu Sirish explores Cannes, makes a new resolve

Allu Sirish likes to meet and interact with new, creative people.  That's why he explores new forums like award functions and film festivals.  Cannes Film Festival 2018 is his most recent exploration.  

"I was there to primarily watch films, meet different filmmakers from around the world. While I enjoyed myself, I also got to participate in a few seminars organized by the I & B Ministry and FICCI and the India Pavilion," the Mega hero says in a statement.

He adds, "I watched films from all over the world. I realized how big the world of entertainment is beyond Telugu films and Bollywood. Even within India, we are so unaware of the other regional industries. Many films from North East and Marathi too were showcasing at the market."

The 'Okka Kshanam' actor observes, "The red carpet, glamour and parties overshadow the art and millions of dollars of commerce that happens at Cannes. Though I went on the red carpet and parties myself I was more interested in the movies there."

"I made varied friends other than filmmakers: A Chinese stylist, French perfume marker, movie lovers from Morocco, France and Argentina," he says. 

"I have spoken to many people in our industry. They want to be present at these forums but clueless, From all my visits and interactions, I would submit a report to our apex body, that is, TFPC.  Hope we have better representation at such forums henceforth," he signs off.
