Be a ci­ti­zen of the world and an in­di­vid­ual too

Post - - BOLLY / KOLLY -

NA­TIONAL Award-win­ning ac­tress Kangana Ra­naut,

pic­tured, 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, ace 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 your in­di­vid­u­al­ity.”

The ac­tress had flaunted a sari de­signed by Sabyasachi at the Cannes Film Fes­ti­val last month. – IANS
