The Cannes Film Festival kicked off on May 14 and Indian celebrities are all geared up to walk the red carpet at the prestigious festival. After Hina Khan, now the red carpet will witness Kangana Ranaut on May 17. This will be her second outing at the French Riviera and this year too her red carpet look will be nothing short of dramatic. Earlier today, the Manikarnika actor was spotted at the airport sporting a crisp Gucci shirt and blue denim accessorised with a sling bag.

A source close to the Kangana revealed to Pinkvilla that she has opted for Falguni and Shane Peacock creation for the big splash at the Cannes red carpet. When the entertainment portal asked for the same, she said it is a conscious move. She told Pinkvilla, “Fashion without purpose is like a bird without wings. Ami (Patel, her stylist) and I are very conscious of dying weaves and poor condition of our Indian weavers. So, we have collectively decided to endorse our own. Even though I will be wearing various outfits, the sari will be the biggest highlight.”


Last year, as well, Kangana was seen donning a saree. She made her red carpet debut wearing a black sequinned saree. She is also seen wearing a choker and her winged eye makeup, and hair done up in vintage style, give her the Indian diva look.

Earlier, a source also revealed that for the festival she has lost 5 kg in just 10 days. She has been training at Yogesh Bhateja’s studio and Bhateja said, “Kangana was supposed to gain weight for ‘Panga’, so the calorie structure we followed was higher. So, all of a sudden it was not easy for any person to switch from a high-calorie diet to a calorie-deficit diet. Kangana worked out twice a day after an intense shoot for ‘Panga’ for 10-11 hours every day.”
