Kangana Ranaut, whose childhood in a small town of Himachal Pradesh was devoid of fashion influences, has fast emerged as an effortless style diva in Bollywood. Taking this a step ahead, the National Award winning actor has turned designer for a limited edition line of a brand. And she hopes to go a notch higher by launching her own label in future.
For her first tryst as a designer, Kangana has associated with European brand Vero Moda.
But in a tete-a-tete with media, she said, “I would definitely like to have <g data-gr-id="29">collection</g> of my own or label of my own.”
“This (association with the brand) could just be a starting step to that. I want to know how my association with Vero Moda goes, how it evolves in the season. It will be a significant step towards that direction,” added the Queen of Bollywood.
Clearly, acting is not the only aspect of showbiz that Kangana wants to involve herself in. She stepped onto the other side of the camera for her last released film Katti Batti, seven minutes of which she directed herself.
“I wish I did, <g data-gr-id="34">but unfortunately</g> I didn’t have that much of time. I think it’s always good to have the proper understanding, that technical understanding of every aspect. I like to be prepared for everything that I do but it was too short a notice for me,” she said, by adding that she had a group of designers who worked with her day in and day out to help in her first collection. They kept me informed about season trends and global trends,” she said.
