Cannes 2021 postponed at the French Riviera due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic
Cannes film festival, which is conducted every year at the French Riviera, is something that people from all over the world consider with pride. Bollywood also has its own fan following of the popular film festival as many stars from India visit Cannes. From Aishwarya Rai to Deepika Padukone to Mallika Sherawat to Sonam Kapoor to Priyanka Chopra – they’ve been regulars at the festival since years. Also, time to time Indian films gets screened there and that’s also pride for all of us as Indians. However, due to the pandemic, the Cannes 2021 has been postponed.
Last year as well, Cannes Film Festival was cancelled due to the pandemic of Covid-19, and this year too it’s been postponed, so it seems like fans of the same will have to wait even further to see their favourite celebs walk down the red carpet. The event was supposed to happen between May 11-22. However, now it’s been pushed until July 6-17, that too depending on the condition of Covid-19. Organisers of the Cannes Film Festival said in a statement, “As announced last autumn, the Festival de Cannes reserved the right to change its dates depending on how the global health situation developed.”
While many film festivals have bent their rules due to the global pandemic and decided to go online and use digital means to showcase the films, Cannes is unwilling to change to that norm. They continue to be adamant on their decision of having the festival only when things get back to normalcy, and they can get people to physically attend the film festival.
For people loving movies, Cannes is indeed one of the best things to happen throughout the year, and with it getting postponed, it sure is going to leave a lot of hearts disheartened. Let’s wait and watch what our favourite celebs like Sonam Kapoor, Aishwarya Rai and others have to say about their favourite event of the year getting postponed.
