Actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Rasika Duggal was seen with filmmaker Nandita Das at the festival. Manto has been selected to compete in the Un Certain Regard section at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival. Nandita Das spoke at the teaser launch of Manto, "The idea is to tell a story for audience. We are not putting 'Manto' on a pedestal. He was somebody who used to speak the truth despite all challenges he faced. For youth, it is extremely inspirational to see someone like him. I think it's a film where the audience will be able to take home something and everyone will relate with his personality."
Manoj Bajpayee unveiled the first look of the upcomimg film Bhosle at the festival.
Dhanush, Huma Qureshi, Neena Gupta and Mallika Sherawat are also attending the Cannes Film Festival this year.
