Kangna is the fashion chameleon. Every passing season the actor reinvents her style, fashion sensibility and image. Over the years, the small town girl has evolved to become a true blue style diva. Her fashion adventures have seen her experimenting with desi grunge, hippie trippy, Grecian grace, gothic chic, flirty feminine, sex kitten and a glam diva. She has even managed to pull off avant-garde, quirky and nerdy chic with aplomb.
While most tinsel town beauties stick to the tired and tested beauty and hair styles - usually it's straight hair or boring curls - Kangna always keeps experimenting with haircuts and colour, going from brown and curly to a sexy black bob. Kangna gives Indian designer wear a twist which no other celebrity has managed so far.
Theatre- Ranaut started her career as a theatre actor in Delhi with Asmita Theatre Group.She trained under eminent theatre director Arvind Gaur.She participated in his theatre workshop at India Habitat Centre and acted in several plays. Her first play with Arvind Gaur was Girish Karnad's Taledanda (Rakt-Kalyan).
Words are like pearl- "I must admit that artists are not valued in this country and it's not just actors, it also includes painters, dancers, classical singers. They are not even paid well," Kangna.
"I started my career with theatre and my Guru kept telling me if you want to live in poverty pursue theatre and if you want to have a happy life try something else,"
"In Bollywood we have this funny concept of stars and actors. Sometimes your stardom really overpowers your acting abilities. It is very unfortunate but that's the way it is."
"I come from a middle class family, and my parents weren't too supportive of my career choices. My father is a businessman, and my mother is a schoolteacher. They would always discuss my career whenever I'd visit them, but they are now very happy as Gangster is doing well. In fact, Himachal Pradesh is proud of me! I keep getting calls from there. I'm very happy now, but I'm sure that when I'm older, I will miss being a student and not going to college. I should be writing love letters at this age. Instead, I'm working day and night. Then again, you can't get everything in life."
