Former India spinner Anil Kumble was also spotted at Cannes. On Tuesday, he took to Instagram and shared a picture with his wife Chetana Kumble from the French Riviera.

In the image, Anil and his wife are seen twinning in black. The cricketer opted for a black velvet suit while Chetana draped a black saree.

Each May, all eyes in the film industry are on the Festival de Cannes. The organisation puts its profile and platform to work in giving the film the space to shine, ensuring a huge diversity of voices, sensibilities, and talents are showcased.

This year four Indian films have made it to the official selection at Cannes Film Festival. Kanu Behl's 'Agra', Anurag Kashyap's 'Kennedy', and Manipuri film 'Ishanhou', and many Indian films are slotted for being screened in Marche du Films.

This year's special focus will be on India's culture and heritage at the India Pavilion. The theme for this year's Pavilion is based on the Goddess of knowledge, Saraswati.
