The biggest buzz these days is all about Pakistan’s sweetheart, Mahira Khan, flying off to attend the coveted Cannes Film Festival 2018. The actress will be attending as the official spokesperson for L’Oréal Paris Hair Care in Pakistan, and yesterday saw a press conference held by the brand team, giving Mahira a chance to speak about her upcoming journey.
The L’Oreal-Cannes collaboration spans over two decades, and we have seen the likes of Aishwarya Rai, Sonam Kapoor, Eva Langoria and Penelope Cruz represent the brand in all its glory.
As Musharaf Hai, Managing Director of L’Oreal Pakistan, pointed out “Deepika will be there, Sonam will be there as will all the Hollywood bigwigs, and it’s healthy to be shoulder-to-shoulder with everyone!”
Mahira’s agenda includes one full day that will be lined with interviews, appearances, workshops and a special show called ‘The Worth It Show’ where Mahira Khan is set to feature, alongside other global L’Oréal Paris spokeswomen.
“This is a very proud moment, not just for me, not just for the L’Oréal team, but for Pakistan…This is a huge moment and it will hopefully open a lot more doors for us,” the actress said while addressing the media.
While the star admitted that she is nervous, she is not one to fuss over pre-prepared answers to the questions that may come her way. Journalists and reporters were curious to know how Mahira will represent Pakistan on the prestigious platform and how she will speak of women empowerment in our country. “I will say it as is…I’m very proud to see women in Pakistan stand up and speak out about women empowerment or any kind of rights. It is commendable and I will talk about that.” Mahira affirmed.
