Deepika Padukone is a member of the jury at the Cannes Film Festival this season and has mostly kept her public appearances easy and comfortable. However, the actor's red carpet appearance on Tuesday turned out to be quite a struggle. She arrived at the venue in an elaborate orange gown with a train and was seen struggling to walk in the figure-hugging piece with the train hindering her path.
Deepika posed with her fellow jury members at the event as they attended the screening of the film, L'innocent. Deepika's choice of attire looked dramatic with a bundle of pleated cloth behind her back but the actor's struggle with the train was real. Everytime she walked a little, she was seen bending down to bring the bundled up train from her side to her back. She was also seen walking in a peculiar way in the skirt that did not allow her to climb the stairs with ease.
Deepika shared pictures of the look on Instagram and her husband Ranveer Singh was among the first ones to shower her with praise. He commented, “This is everything!” with kiss eyes emoji and heart emoticon. Neha Dhupia also called her "stunning" in the comments section.
