Deepika Padukone has become a global face of French luxury house Louis Vuitton, making her the first-ever Indian celebrity to do so. She left for the Cannes Film Festival earlier this week. However, before she plays a pivotal part of the jury, the actor made her way to the Louis Vuitton 2023 Cruise Show in San Diego, California.

Deepika is also part of the eight-member competition jury of the Cannes Film Festival along with actor-filmmaker Rebecca Hall and Iranian filmmaker Asghar Farhadi. French actor Vincent Lindon will be the president of the jury that also includes Swedish actor Noomi Rapace, Italian actor-director Jasmine Trinca, French filmmaker-actor Ladj Ly, filmmaker Jeff Nichols and director-screenwriter Joachim Trier from Norway. The jury will reward one of the 21 films in competition with the coveted Palme d’Or during the closing ceremony on May 28.
Deepika was earlier the chairperson of Jio MAMI Mumbai Film Festival for two years.
On work front
The actor currently has several projects in pipeline. She will be seen opposite Shah Rukh Khan yet again in his comeback film, Pathan. She was shooting for the film in Spain earlier this year. The actor was last seen in Shakun Batra’s Gehraiyaan and had made her Hollywood debut with the 2017 film xXx: The Return of Xander Cage, lead by Vin Diesel.
She will also join Hrithik Roshan on screen for the first time in Siddharth Anand’s Fighter. Her lineup also includes the Hindi remake of Hollywood movie The Intern and Project K with Prabhas, which is touted as a mega-budget sci-fi thriller by Nag Ashwin.
