I am going to be at Cannes, the most celebrated festival of the world and beyond that I am not thinking so much of my wardrobe," Balan told PTI at the official launch of Indian Film Festival of Melbourne here recently.

"I see myself in a saree even when I am sleeping. So you will see me in a saree in Cannes," she said. Balan is part of the prestigious nine-member jury, headed by Hollywood director Steven Spielberg.

The other big names joining Spielberg are 'Life of Pi' helmer Ang Lee, Oscar-winning actress Nicole Kidman, Oscar-winner Christophe Waltz, Japanese director Naomi Kawase, Scottish director Lynne Ramsay, French actor-director Daniel Auteuil and Romanian director Cristian Mungiu. Balan, who recently got married to UTV Disney honcho Sidhharth Roy Kapur, said marriage has not changed her life.

"I have been married four months and marriage has not changed anything or may be its too early to say," Balan said. The 66th Cannes Film festival is all set to kick off on French Riviera on May 15. Apart from Balan, actress Nandita Das is also part of a separate jury for short films. Director Shekhar Kapur, actress Aishwarya Rai, Sharmila Tagore have previously been a part of Cannes jury.
