Raveena Mehta Performs At Cannes
The 75th Edition of the Cannes Film Festival was a special affair for India as the country was chosen as the first ‘Country of Honour’ at Marche du Cinema this year. The Indian delegation at the film festival hit the headlines this year for multiple reasons including actor Deepika Padukone attending the festival as a jury member.

The Red Carpet also witnessed many firsts as Assamese actor-filmmaker Aimee Baruah, folk singer Mame Khan attended the recently concluded festival for the first time.

Adding to the list of those firsts is indie musician Raveena Mehta. The singer-songwriter, who had represented and showcased India’s culture at the global event thrice previously, was invited to perform for Tiffany’s Fashion Week in Hermitage Hotel, Monaco for the first time!
