This year’s Cannes film festival was all about woman-power.

The red carpet moments of our desi girls including Deepika Padukone, Kangana Ranaut, Aishwarya Rai and Sonam Kapoor sent the internet wild. But one more Asian actress made a smashing debut and that was Mahira Khan.

Aside from her lovely outfits and the poise with which she carried them, Mahira also made news for her bonding with Sonam Kapoor.

In a sweet image that took the internet by storm, Sonam was seen giving a peck to Mahira, almost in a protective manner before the latter’s red carpet moment. Sonam also followed Mahira on the red carpet, looking resplendent herself.

In fact, Sonam’s  warm  hug for Mahira Khan at the Cannes Film Festival could well be the best poster image of  Indo-Pak cultural camaraderie in  recent times. However, it didn’t happen on an impulse or all of a sudden, say sources. A  source  close to Sonam reveals, “Mahira and Sonam have shared  warm vibes ever since Sonam  co-starred with Mahira’s favourite co-star Fawad Khan in Khubsoorat a few years ago. Mahira and Sonam got to  know one another through Fawad. Then  there  is the Ranbir Kapoor factor common to both  Sonam and  Mahira. Both the actresses are known  to have been  close to  Ranbir at one  some  point in  their lives.”

Mahira and Sonam met with the warmth that one notices  between artistes  from both the  countries in recent months. Very recently singer Rahat Fateh Ali Khan announced  he will be doing a  version of Lata Mangeshkar’s song Allah Tero Naam.
