Raghu Dixit reveals his idea for the festival

He performed with his band at the British Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebration in 2012. In 2015, he performed with Cold Play lead singer Chris Martin in Delhi. Speaking of Cannes, the singer mentioned that he aims to take India to the festival. He said: “The idea is to tell stories of India, which our songs naturally carry. Our Kannadas are all very full of philosophy. And when it comes to India, we are the first destination for spirituality and all that. And our songs have that. So I want to show them a good time and make them dance.”
“Seriously, I want everyone to have a good time and make them sing. Maybe we’ll make the French people sing in Kannada with us,” he added.
