Now Kangana Ranaut who recently wowed the fashionistas and international critics alike with her Cannes looks on and off the red carpet, has come out in support of the designer.

In February, fashion designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee got into controversy after criticising women for not being able to drape a saree. “During his visit to Harvard India Conference, the fashion designer had said, “I think, if you tell me you do not know how to wear a saree, I would say shame on you. It’s a part of your culture, (you) need to stand up for it.” He faced a lot of backlash because of the statement.

Now Kangana Ranaut who recently wowed the fashionistas and international critics alike with her Cannes looks on and off the red carpet, has come out in support of the designer.

The Queen actress is on the cover of the June issue of Harpers Bazaar and in a candid interview with the magazine has said, “I think if you’re an Indian woman you should know how to drape a saree. 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.” She said that she agrees with the designer on his statement.

Gracing the cover of the magazine in a Sabyasachi outfit and also styled by the designer, Ranaut called out on the hypocrisy on embracing yourself, your culture and where you come from. ST
