Actor Kangana Ranaut has left for the Cannes Film Festival and will be walking the red carpet for the second time on Thursday. The Manikarnika actor was seen at the Mumbai airport, leaving for France, in a striped shirt and flair denims. Paired with a quirky handbag around her shoulder, Kangana seemed to be all set to stun at the French Riviera from May 16-18.
Kangana has reportedly lost 5 kilograms in 10 days ahead of her public appearance at Cannes. She had gained around 10 kilograms for her upcoming film, Panga, in which she plays a kabaddi player.
Kangana has confirmed wearing a unique sari by designer duo Falguni and Shane Peacock for her red carpet outing. She will be representing a vodka brand at the festival and has claimed that her clothes will reflect the brand theme ‘Live Victoriously’.
Talking about her look at the festival, Kangana said in a statement, “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,” says Ranaut.

Kangana Ranaut @team_kangana_ranaut @festivaldecannes looks resplendent in an ultra-glamorous rendition of our famous ‘‘Aakash-tara’ (i.e. starry skies) saree. The saree is hand-dyed and embellished with hand-cut sequins that are individually sewn using zardosi technique, to create a metallic, yet fluid fabric. Her look is accessorised with a Sabyasachi batua and the ‘teenmaniya’ necklace, crafted out of rose-cut diamonds, Colombian emeralds and basra pearls from the Sabyasachi Heritage Jewelry Collection.

Kangana had made her debut at the Cannes Film Festival last year by walking the red carpet in a black Sabyasachi ‘Akash-Tara’ sari with a sleeveless blouse and a bouffant hairdo from the 1960-1970s. She had also worn a sheer Zuhair Murad gown for her second day on the red carpet and made headlines for turning up in a red latex dress and a bra topped with a jacket in her other appearances during the festival.
