Kangana Ranaut to once again rock a saree at the Cannes Film Festival 2019 red carpet

Kangana Ranaut is promising yet another stunning appearance at the 72nd Cannes Film Festival this year. As she gears up to walk the red carpet of the prestigious event, the actress is planning to once again don a traditional look. Kangana has been planning something special with her stylist Ami Patel for her appearance at the French Riviera.

The actress will be representing India, with an ensemble weaved from fabrics created in India. Kangana is planning a statement appearance in a Falguni and Shane Peacock saree. “The clothes I wear will have drama. At the same time, as an Indian actor on a global platform, I have the responsibility of endorsing our weavers and wearing outfits that reflect our rich cultural heritage. My stylist Ami Patel and I have been brainstorming for a few weeks. We, along with Falguni and Shane Peacock, are designing a unique saree. The idea is to revive the forgotten weaves and bring them to the fore so that the world is more aware of our rich fabrics and culture,” said Kangana. The actress revealed that her clothes will reflect the theme ‘Live Victoriously’. Back in 2018, Kangana rocked a retro look on the red carpet in a black Sabyasachi saree.

Kangana has been working on Panga, while she prepared for her international appearance. “I was so busy with Panga. I had to gain almost 10 kilos; Ashwini (Panga’s director) wanted me to have thunder thighs. During trials, I realised I have to lose some weight,” said Kangana, who gave her team only a week’s time for the preparations.

Bollywood beauties, Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone recently impressed all with fashionable outing at Met Gala 2019, whose theme was Camp this year. “In 2012, I attended Rakesh Roshan’s birthday party without eyebrows. So dressing riskily has never been a deterrent for me. I was one of the first actresses to start wearing sarees to the airport. I use fashion as an expression of myself. When I was seeing the Met gala pictures, I thought to myself that in India, the real queen of camp would be Rekhaji. It’s wonderful how our women Priyanka (Chopra Jonas) and Deepika (Padukone) are making their mark there,” quipped Kangana.

On the work front, Kangana will soon be seen in Mental Hai Kya, alongside Rajkummar Rao. The film is scheduled to hit the screens on July 26.
