Kiara Advani Trolled for English Accent at Cannes

Bollywood actress Kiara Advani recently made a stunning appearance on the red carpet of the Cannes Film Festival. While her photos quickly went viral, it was a video of her speaking to the media that sparked widespread online discussion and criticism.

After stepping off the red carpet, Kiara engaged with the media, but her English accent in her responses drew negative attention. Many social media users criticized her for what they perceived as a forced accent.

The incident occurred during the Red Sea International Film Festival and Vanity Fair Europe Dinner, where six women, including Kiara, were honored. Expressing her excitement, Kiara said, "It is very good. Now my career is about to complete a decade, so this is a very important moment. I am grateful to be coming to Cannes for the first time and to be honored by the Red Sea Foundation for Women in Film.”

Despite her enthusiasm, the online backlash was swift. Comments ranged from accusations of faking her accent to suggestions that she should have spoken in her natural Indian accent. One user commented, "I like her a lot but why did she say that?" Another added, "Speaking in an Indian accent is not wrong or disrespectful. So why don't these people speak in the same tone?" A third remarked, "She should have spoken in an Indian accent."

The Cannes Film Festival is known for its high-profile events that showcase global talent. This year saw many Indian celebrities grace the red carpet, including Kiara, who wore a striking pink and black dress. She shared several photos from the event on social media, captioning them, "This night will be remembered."

Despite the trolling, Kiara's presence at Cannes marks a significant milestone in her career, highlighting her achievements and the global recognition of Indian talent.
