Prateik Babbar Heads to Cannes to Honor Mother Smita Patil's Legacy

Actor Prateik Babbar was recently spotted at Mumbai airport, exuding joy and excitement as he embarked on a journey to the Cannes Film Festival. Prateik's visit to Cannes holds special significance as his late mother, legendary actress Smita Patil's film 'Manthan', is scheduled to be screened at the prestigious gala.



Prateik was seen sporting a casual yet stylish look, wearing a sweatshirt and jeans, with a radiant smile on his face as he made his way into the airport. The film premiere of 'Manthan' at Cannes will be attended by stalwarts like Naseeruddin Shah, the producers of the film, and Film Heritage Foundation's Shivendra Singh Dungarpur. The screening is set to take place on May 17, showcasing the timeless classic to a global audience.


'Manthan', starring Naseeruddin Shah and the late Smita Patil, holds a special place in Indian cinema history. It is the only Indian film selected under the Cannes Classic section of the festival this year. The Film Heritage Foundation, presenting at Cannes for the third consecutive year, has previously premiered 'Thamp' (2022) and 'Ishanou' (2023) at the prestigious film festival.


The film 'Manthan' is a poignant tale inspired by the pioneering milk cooperative movement of Verghese Kurien, known for leading 'Operation Flood' and transforming India into the world's largest milk producer. The film, fronted by Smita Patil, pays tribute to Kurien's efforts and the creation of the iconic brand 'Amul'.
