Bollywood star Deepika Padukone had several Hollywood agents vying for her attention at the Cannes film festival.

Deepika's recent visit to the Cannes festival, her first major international appearance, caught the attention of none other than filmmaker Woody Allen.

Buzz is that the lissome actress, who looked resplendent in a Rohit Bal saree, was being coveted by several Hollywood agents at Cannes. A friend of Deepika says, “Many Hollywood agents sent her messages, directly and indirectly, that they would like to be appointed by her if she was keen on Hollywood assignments.”

It was one of these agents who texted her that Woody Allen would like to meet her.

Deepika was obviously thrilled. But she couldn't extend her stay due to prior work commitments in India. “She couldn't have a meeting with any of these agents,” adds Deepika's friend.

Commenting on Deepika's reaction to these offers, her friend adds, “It's too early to say what will happen next. Deepika created quite a buzz at Cannes. If a concrete Hollywood offer comes along, well and good. She would definitely consider it.”

Seems like Deepika's attractive looks and stunning saree was too good a combination to be missed by the swish Hollywood set.

The ongoing Cannes also saw the lovely actress keeping a promise she had made to herself as a starry-eyed teenager. Deepika had told a section of the media, “Long ago when I had started modelling, I had promised myself that whenever I attend an international event, I'd wear a saree because I'd rather represent my country in the national costume than in western clothes. It felt good to be so Indian so far away from home.”
