The jury will be headed by Steven Spielberg and by being a part of it, Vidya has joined the league of celebrities like Nicole Kidman, Ang Lee, Christopher Waltz, Japanese director Naomi Kawase, Scottish director Lynne Ramsay, French actor-director Daniel Auteuil and Roman director Cristian Mungiu, who too are on the panel.

On hearing the good news, filmmaker Sujoy Ghosh too expressed his joy on Twitter, writing, "balan is on cannes jury!! way to go:) (sic)." Vidya played the lead role in Ghosh's 2012 release Kahaani and bagged almost all the major awards this year, for her power-packed performance in the thriller.
