Beast girl Pooja Hegde who made her Cannes debut at the 75th edition of the film festival, walking the red carpet of the Tom Cruise-starrer Top Gun: Maverick' premiere revealed she had a major fashion crisis before she arrived for the festival – she lost her luggage carrying her outfits, as well as her hair and makeup products.

“We lost all our hair products, makeup, we lost outfits. Thankfully I brought a couple of real jewellery pieces from India which I had hand-carried. We landed, we had this upon us. We couldn’t cry about it because we didn’t have time to do that. I think probably my manager panicked more than me. But I was like, ‘okay fine. Let’s get into the car. Let’s do fittings here. I will figure out the outfit,'" she told

“My team ran, they got new hair products, new makeup, all of that, trying to make time, and it was crazy. We have had no lunch, no breakfast. I had my first meal of the day in the night (of red carpet appearance). So it was pretty hectic. My hairstylist had food poisoning, so he was like gonna pass out and he was doing my hair. I have a stand-up team, I am here because of them," she added.

Pooja attended Cannes 2022 as a part of an 11-member delegation from India as the nation has been selected as the Country of Honour at the ongoing film festival. The delegation led by Union Minister for Information and Broadcasting Anurag Thakur also included AR Rahman, Ricky Kej Nayanthara, Pooja Hegde, R Madhavan, and Nawazuddin Siddiqui.
