Deepika Padukone broke every box office record with her Hollywood debut in xXx: Return of Xander Cage. But looks like the Bajirao Mastani actor is looking for more on the international arena. As per reports, Deepika is now set to turn heads at the Cannes Film Festival one more time. Deepika has become the brand ambassador of a leading beauty product, which is already endorsed by Bollywood beauties Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and fashion diva Sonam Kapoor.
This means that Deepika might walk the red carpet of the 70th annual Cannes Film Festival, which is scheduled to be held between 17th and 28th May this year. This will be the second time she will be attending the prestigious event. Earlier, Deepika had attended this movie galore in 2010. There were also rumours that the xXx actor has replaced Katrina Kaif. However, according to a report in Pinkvilla, Katrina and the brand parted ways back in 2016 because the Baar Baar Dekho actor will be launching a new business venture in retail.
Trade analyst Ramesh Bala’s tweet has made this speculation even strong. He tweeted, “.@deepikapadukone to be the new face of #LOrealParis – Might attend #Cannes2017 Film Festival..”

Hence, in order to avoid any conflict of interest with the new venture, Katrina and this beauty retail brand had mutually agreed not to renew their present contract. Well, we are totally excited to see Deepika hitting the Cannes red carpet.
