Kangana Ranaut known for her bold fashion and dauntless statements chose to flaunt in a traditional Kanjeevaram sari styled with a twist, a corset and gloves at the 72nd Cannes Film Festival started on May 14, 2019.
The National Award-winning actress, is in a brand association with Grey Goose and was seen with Amit Khare who is the Secretary, Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, and CBFC Chief Prasoon Joshi at India Pavilion.
Ranaut at the ongoing gala spoke about her journey, the much needed changes in the industry and her idea of nationalism amongst other things.
She said: “I don’t know when and how nationalism and being liberal became two different things because nationalism is something very spiritual in nature. When you identify with another being, when you fall in love with someone, it is such an exhilarating feeling. You include them, and you feel one with them. And if you identify with a set of people, that makes your family, right? And then you start to identify with your village, your caste people… It expands your experience of inclusiveness”.
Concluding on views she added that “Nationalism is nothing but identifying with a whole lot of people who have vowed to be in the same constitution or have the same passport or vow to protect the same land. It’s nothing but your extended family.”
She also spoke about how women are making their individual identities nationally and internationally and not merely playing the supporting roles in the films.
