The 77th Cannes Film Festival, running from May 14 to May 25 this year, is known for generating some of the most talked-about fashion moments, with celebrities embracing French Riviera glamour on the red carpet. This week, the Namaste Bollywood Instagram page posted a Reel of actress Aishwarya Rai posing on the red carpet at the 2024 Cannes Film Festival, wearing an extravagant blue and white sparkly gown. The dress drew mixed reactions from fans, who mostly commented on its design.

However, an unexpected comment from celebrity chef Chef Wan sparked controversy. Chef Wan jokingly remarked that the actress was “carrying Kavadi on herself heading to Batu Cave Thaipusam ceremony.” For context, Kavadi Aattam is a ceremonial sacrifice performed by devotees during the Thaipusam celebration.

Chef Wan's comment did not sit well with netizens, who accused the Malaysian public figure of being insensitive and racist. Instagram users called him out for making fun of a religious practice, expressing disappointment that an esteemed chef would make such a remark. One Twitter user referenced Chef Wan's controversial 2021 Gawai Festival Platter, which was criticized for lacking Iban dishes.

The incident highlights the importance of cultural sensitivity, especially for public figures, and has ignited discussions about respect and understanding across different cultural practices.
