It is day 2 of the ongoing Cannes Film Festival and Indian beauties Deepika Padukone, Pooja Hegde, Tamannaah Bhatia and Urvashi Rautela fully immersed themselves in their Indian roots as they danced to folk artist Mame Khan's Rajasthani rendition during an event. A video has been shared on social media in which we can see the four actresses get up and dance in sync as Khan performs live in front of the people who have gathered around.

Deepika is seen in a black power suit, Urvashi wears a black dress, Tamannaah looks pretty in a multi-coloured dress and Pooja opts for a white dress with various colours. It is interesting to see the women come together at Cannes and how the culture of India unites them all.
