This requires the investor to be in tip top mental shape in order to confront tough buy or sell decisions when the time comes. A reading under 20 would suggest no trend, and a reading from 20-25 would suggest that there is no clear trend signal.

Talking about her Cannes debut, Kangana had earlier told IANS, "It is overwhelming to witness the recognition and appreciation for Indian cinema at worldwide platforms like Cannes. Impact is not the intention".

It has also further increased pressure on Cannes to address the glaring gender imbalance in its main competition and overhaul a dress code considered sexist by critics, with women stopped on the red carpet in previous years for not wearing high heels. I've been chosen to represent India and our industry and the great work we're doing here.

Also, another important commitment in the pipeline is the global magazine photoshoots that have been lined up. Talking about the actresses and their appearance at the French Riveria, Deepika will walk the Cannes' red carpet on May 10 and 11. While Ranaut has never been inhibited about her aspirations of taking up direction, she is happy to get this platform as a learning experience. For her what matters is the festival which she describes as the melting pot of world cinema. She is also planning to catch up with some of her friends from Los Angeles who are planning to fly to Cannes for a reunion of sorts.
