Last year, actor Kangana Ranaut represented India on an international platform, when she was invited to be part of the Women In The World Summit, in London. Now, the actor will attend the opening ceremony of the International Fleet Review (IFR), in Visakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh. She is the guest of honour for the event.
A source close to Kangana says, “The prestigious event, hosted by the Indian Navy, will be held today and tomorrow (February 5 and 6). It will be attended by several dignitaries, including Prime Minister Narendra Modi and defence minister Monohar Parrikar. For the opening ceremony today, Kangana will share the stage with Andhra Pradesh chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu and the governor of Andhra Pradesh, ESL Narasimhan. Tomorrow, she will be part of a sailing event, where she will sail with PM Modi and President Pranab Mukherjee, among other dignitaries.”
Apparently, Kangana had blocked her dates for this event four months back. “The mega event will also be attended by nearly 10,000 officers and sailors, along with their families,” adds the source.
When contacted, the actor’s spokesperson confirmed the news, saying, “Kangana will attend the event in Visakhapatnam. She is glad to be part of it, as she has the highest regard for the Indian Armed Forces.”
