Take a look!
Mallika Sherawat arrived in Cannes on day two of the ongoing French Film Festival.
And let us just say that we were more surprised than we've ever been.
The actress arrived to catch the premiere of Charlize Theron and Nicholas Hoult starrer Mad Max: Fury Road in an eye-popping pink gown.
There was no sign of pastel shades and (GASP!) no bare-backed gimmick this time.
The actress paired her gown with an exquisite Boucheron neckpiece.
While she had no new film to promote or a brand to endorse, the actress was on a panel at the India Pavilion discussing Co-Producing in India.

In keeping with the elegant gown, the actress kept her makeup minimal and rounded off the look with side-swept hair.
