The actor, who was named the first Pakistani brand ambassador for make-up giant L'Oreal past year, took to Instagram to share the news, Geo News reported.

In a keynote appearance today at Series Mania, Netflix CEO Reed Hastings struck an unusually conciliatory note in discussing the company's recent feud with the Cannes Film Festival.

I am really proud of that. "They showed up because they have the quality to do so, physically, football-wise and in mindset". It's all there what we need in the moment and let's use it.


The Cannes Film Festival is a yearly film celebration held in France, which sees new movies of all classes, including documentaries from all around the globe. It all began when Netflix's films Okja and The Meyerowitz Stories were admitted in the official category.

Netflix, with some 125 million global subscribers, reportedly then pulled five films in the running for this month's festival after the three-year rule was brought in. This year's forthcoming Festival de Cannes will open with a screening of Asghar Farhadi's new film Everybody Knows (Todos Lo Saben) in Competition at the Grand Théâtre Lumière in the Palais des Festivals on Tuesday 8 May. It angered many French exhibitors who protested that those films had not been shown in French theatres.

Can't we all just get along?

For 2018, Cannes banned from competition any film from the streaming service which did not respect France's strict 36-month window between cinematic release and availability on demand. "They are very honest at finding a model that works for them and us".
