Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut, who put on a few kilos for her role as a kabbadi player in Ashwini Iyer’s Panga, has lost 5 kg in 10 days. She underwent the drastic workout regime for her red carpet appearance at the ongoing Cannes Film Festival that opened Monday.
Kangana was recently snapped at Yogesh Bhateja’s studio, where she was working out for her Cannes look. Yogesh said in a press statement, “Kangana was supposed to gain wait for Panga so the calorie structure we followed was higher. So, all of a sudden it is not easy for any person to switch from high-calorie diet to a calorie-deficit diet. Kangana worked out twice a day after an intense shoot for Panga for 10-11 hours everyday.”
Kangana had put on weight for her Ashwini’s film but her stylist and designers working on her Cannes red carpet dress wanted a leaner physique. Falguni and Shane Peacock have designed a dramatic entrance for Kangana who will wear a sari for her Cannes debut this year. “I was so busy with Panga. I had to gain almost 10 kilos; Ashwini (Panga’s director) wanted me to have thunder thighs. During trials (for her Cannes dresses), I realised I have to lose some weight,” she had said.
The actor, who is representing a vodka brand at the 72nd Cannes Film Festival, has claimed that her clothes will reflect the theme ‘Live Victoriously’.
Talking about her red carpet look, Kangana recently said in a statement, “The clothes I wear will have drama. At the same time, as an Indian actor on a global platform, I have the responsibility of endorsing our weavers and wearing outfits that reflect our rich cultural heritage. My stylist Ami Patel and I have been brainstorming for a few weeks. We, along with Falguni and Shane Peacock, are designing a unique saree. The idea is to revive the forgotten weaves and bring them to the fore so that the world is more aware of our rich fabrics and culture,” says Ranaut.
