Kangana Ranaut made it to the news for her 600 rupees Indian attire. Although she did get appreciation from some people for her modesty and thought that she rocked the saree. On the other hand, trollers struck at her for being hypocritical by pairing this inexpensive saree with expensive branded fashion products.
But unperturbed Kangana is happy that for whatever reason, people noticed what she was wearing because she intends to bring to public attention the over-consumption of resources in the fashion industry.
Her sister: Rangoli Chandel who shared her photo in which she was donning this 600 Rupee saree, while carrying an expensive branded bag, captioned the pic with the words,
“On her way to Jaipur today, Kangana is wearing Rs 600 sari she picked from Kolkata. She was shocked to know one can get such good organic cotton in this amount and it’s heartbreaking to see how hard our people work and how little they earn. Please support our own before international brands take away this also from them. Indian weavers.”
Kangana in a F2F with IANS shared,
“I’m happy, people have noticed it. I tell the fashion industry we, as a generation, are over consuming resources. We got to be considerate. Also, the shaming (of people) for repeating outfits and recycling fabrics should be stopped.”
“They got to appreciate that spirit. Also, we spend so much on organic stuff when they come from fancy stores. But we don’t really see the people — farmers and handicrafts men. They are so poor that they can’t afford pesticides and synthetic fabrics and are organic, by default. We don’t realize that. We got to appreciate that,” she added.
She concluded her interview with the words,
“Just because it’s from the roadside (shop) doesn’t mean it’s not good. When you buy it from a big store, it does make it a different stuff.”
