National Award-winning actor Kangana Ranaut says Indian women should know how to drape a sari and that one can be a global citizen without compromising on individuality.
Earlier this year, designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee had said, “I think, if you tell me you do not know how to wear a sari, I would say shame on you. It’s a part of your culture, (you) need to stand up for it”.
And now, she has shared her opinion on it in an edition of a fashion and lifestyle magazine, read a statement.
She said, “I think if you’re an Indian woman, you should know how to drape a sari. It’s a racket out there with people who only want to shame others in the name of propagating their culture and identity. But I know people who find it ‘uncool’ to admit that they speak and understand Hindi or that they like Indian food or (that they are) brown. You can be a citizen of the world without compromising on your individuality.”
The actor had flaunted a sari designed by Sabyasachi at the Cannes Film Festival last month.
