On the opening night of the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne Awards (IFFM) 2022, actress Tamannaah Bhatia removed her shoes before lighting the ceremonial lamp. A fan account posted a video from the event on Instagram. Tamannaah was joined on stage by actor Taapsee Pannu and film director Anurag Kashyap.
After Taapsee lit a portion of the lamp, she called up Tamannaah to do the same. The actress then removed her shoes and approached the lamp to light it. Tamannaah explained her gesture to a woman nearby, “It’s just South Indian tradition.” Tamannaah then lit the lamp while standing barefoot. Taapsee wore an all-black ensemble with matching heels to the event. Tamannaah wore a green and black dress with heels.
