Indian filmmaker Payal Kapadia's All We Imagine As Light starring Kani Kusruthi and Divya Prabha in the lead roles made history on Thursday as the first Indian title in 30 years to secure a spot in the esteemed Competition section of the Cannes Film Festival.
It will compete for the coveted top prize, the Palme d'Or. The film is set in Mumbai and narrates the tale of two migrant Malayali nurses navigating through their lives, breaking the shackles of a collective consciousness that women are often bound with.
The movie features Kani Kusruti (Maharani, Biryani, Poacher, Eswaran Sakshiyayi), Divya Prabha (Malik) and Hridhu Haroon in important roles.

Proud To Be Part Of The Crew, Says Kani Kusruti:

Sharing the news on her Instagram, Kani wrote: "Payal Kapadia's 'All We Imagine As Light' to premiere at 77th Cannes Film Festival to compete for the Palme d'Or. So proud to be part of this beautiful, incredible, kindest crew and cast. Cookeraaa!! Just an inside joke for us. Could not tag more than 20 people. There is a lot more minds worked behind this film. Thinking of each and everyone."
