Kangana Ranaut set to make Cannes appearance in a unique saree


Kangana Ranaut is all prepared to hit the red carpet of Cannes Film Festival in the French Riviera and the actress, who is very often now seen in saree will represent her country in a unique saree.

The 32-year-old actress shared details on her looks and attire.

"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 bring the forgotten weaves to the fore so that the world is more aware of our rich fabrics and culture," mid-day quoted Kangana as saying.

The ‘Manikarnika’ actress also said that her attire would have oodles ofdrama. "The clothes I wear will have drama. At the same time, as an Indian actor, I have the responsibility of endorsing our weavers, and wearing outfits that reflect our rich heritage."

This is going to be Kangana’s second Cannes appearance. Last year, she represented liquor brand Grey Goose.

Talking about her excitement, Kangana had told IANS: "Following an exhilarating debut last year at the Cannes Film Festival, I am looking forward to representing Indian cinema at such a prestigious platform with the global icon of luxury yet again. I made many lifelong memories, inclusive of both big and small moments."

She added, "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.

The Cannes Film Festival is scheduled to take place from May 14 to May 25 and will also be attended by Cannes regular Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Sonam Kapoor and Deepika Padukone. This year Huma Qureshi and Diana Penty will make their Cannes debut.
