Director Anurag Kashyap and lead stars of his film "Kennedy" Rahul Bhat and Sunny Leone made an appearance at the red carpet of the 76th Cannes Film Festival ahead of the movie's world premiere. The film was showcased under the Midnight Screenings section of the prestigious film gala at the Grand Theatre Lumiere. Sunny Leone looked stunning in her satin dress with high-slit featuring a beautiful long train at the screening of her film Kennedy during the Cannes Film Festival 2023. While the actress looked graceful, she suffered an oops moment as the air blew her gown. Well, no need to worry, Sunny had her director for the rescue.
A video from the Kennedy premiere shows Sunny and Anurag walking the red carpet with Rahul Bhat. As they stopped to pose for the cameras, strong gusty winds made Sunny's dress a little mess to handle. Anurag helped her out by trying to set it properly on the red carpet. She wore a one-shoulder high-slit pink gown for the premiere designed by Naja Saade. For the glam, she kept her hair tied in a sleek bun and opted for diamond earrings and embellished heels. Watch.
