Kiara Advani Criticized For 'Fake Accent' at Cannes: Watch The Viral Video

Kiara Advani recently made headlines at an event on the sidelines of the Cannes Film Festival , not just for her stunning pink and black gown but for an unexpected accent during a red carpet interview. As she attended the Red Sea Film Foundation's Women in Cinema gala dinner, her new accent became a hot topic among fans and netizens.

Accent Raises Eyebrows
In her first-time appearance at Cannes, Kiara expressed her excitement, calling the experience "very, very humbling" as she celebrated a decade in the film industry. However, her American accent on words like "very" and "at" sparked speculation and criticism online.

Social Media Backlash
Twitter users were quick to react. One fan questioned, "I love her, but why that accent?" Another harshly commented, “Does Kiara Advani think she's a Kim Kardashian when she talks like that? Please stfu, and stop that cringe accent. You're not cool or funny for that,” while another added, "Indian accent is in no way bad or a degrade then why do these people have to not choose it n ruin the whole damn thing."

The critique didn't stop there. On Reddit’s BollyBlindNGossips, users expressed their disappointment, questioning why she adopted a new accent and urging her to be herself. One remarked, "How is she talking about being 'humbling' while putting on a ridiculous accent?"

Glamorous Red Carpet Appearance

Despite the accent controversy, Kiara dazzled at the event. Channeling old Hollywood glamour , she wore an off-shoulder pink and black gown with a statement bow, black lace gloves, and completed her look with a high bun, ornate neckpiece, and a statement ring. Her red carpet appearance was celebrated as she was one of six women honored at the Women in Cinema gala, organized by the Red Sea International Film Festival and Vanity Fair Europe.

Upcoming Projects
Kiara Advani continues to stay busy with high-profile projects despite the backlash. She is set to appear in the Telugu political action thriller 'Game Changer' alongside Ram Charan, and will join the YRF spy universe in 'WAR 2' with Hrithik Roshan and Jr. NTR. Additionally, she will star in 'Don 3' with Ranveer Singh and is reportedly working on a film titled 'Toxic' with Yash.

Kiara's Cannes appearance may have sparked a debate, but her star continues to rise with an exciting slate of upcoming films.
