This is Why Mame Khan Chose Rajasthani Attire at Cannes
MUMBAI, (IANS) – Well-known Rajasthani folk singer Mame Khan says he walked the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival 2022 in traditional attire because he wanted to represent the true culture and tradition of India.
He said: “People there wear various forms of clothes and all, so I was like what should I wear? I thought I’m from India and representing the folk culture of India, so I wore a Rajasthani safa (turban) and a coat from Kanpur.”
He later shared how he had to wait for his luggage, and he thought that if it was not going to arrive on time, he would skip going on the red carpet.
“The interesting thing is everyone’s luggage had arrived except mine and Aishwarya Rai’s. I was stubborn that till the time my luggage doesn’t arrive I won’t go on the red carpet. There we have time slots and mine was at 4.30 p.m. but touch wood the luggage arrived at the end moment,” he added.
The popular singer known for several tracks in movies such as ‘Luck by Chance’, ‘No One Killed Jessica’, ‘Sonchiriya’ shared the anecdote while on the ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’.
Mame recalled, “I visited France again after 23 years. I had done a show there and at that time I was not well-versed in English and didn’t know French either. It was a surreal experience walking the red carpet in the same country after so many years.”
