After a fairytale wedding and a star-studded reception, Sonam Kapoor is now all set to take over the Cannes Film Festival, when she walks down the iconic red carpet on May 14 and May 15. The actress, who is heading to the festival to fulfil her brand ambassador duties and make a fashion statement or two while she is at it, has another reason to look forward to gracing the event. The newly-married star took to Twitter to share her excitement to meet Pakistani actress Mahira Khan at the do.
Mahira was one of the many celebrities to congratulate Sonam on her wedding with a tweet that read, “Sonam congratulations! Wishing you a lifetime of joy and happiness. Inshallah. Lots of love x @sonamakapoor.”

For the uninitiated, Mahira has also become the face of an international beauty brand that Sonam endorses and going by their Twitter exchange, either their red carpet dates coincide or it’ll be around the same time, giving them a moment to hang out.
Apart from Sonam and Mahira, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Deepika Padukone and Kangana Ranaut are among the popular Bollywood beauties attending the film festival.
