About time a star debunked the airport look nonsense: Shobhaa De lauds Kangana

About time a star debunked the airport look nonsense: Shobhaa De lauds Kangana

Mumbai: Actress Kangana Ranaut recently called herself a "victim of capitalism" and bid adieu to the "airport look” saying that she has "gone past" the phase.

Now, author Shobhaa De has hailed the Bollywood actress for exposing the fashion industry. De said that it is about time a star spoke up against the "nonsense" airport look.

"About time a star spoke up and debunked the 'airport look' nonsense. Thanks for frankly exposing the pressure exerted by foreign brands exploiting desi insecurity at the expense of our crafts communities", she tweeted.

Kangana took to Instagram, where she took the credit for starting the trend of the airport look in India. She also shared a string of airport looks and captioned the picture slide: "Only person to blame for starting the stupid trend of airport looks."

She then tagged herself as a "Victim of capitalism."

"Brainwashed by magazine editors and fashion industry to look like a Western woman so that I only fill the pockets of international designers. Ashamed to repeat clothes always buying without any care about the impact of my choices on the environment," she said.

"While I act like a bimbo, the system hails me as a fashionista to encourage me to promote more international brands while my own people like weavers and handicrafts men dying slow and steady death. Then they shrewdly start to price tag everything I wear making it a vanity issue for me and guess what I fall for the trap now more than style it's about brands even for a genuinely stylish person," she added.

Kangana said that fashion brands make "you work for them for free by just sending clothes and bags they start to hijack cultures and tradition of an entire civilisation."

Bidding adieu to the trend of airport looks she added: "If this is how an Indian woman looks then what does an American woman look like? Bye bye airport looks, we have gone past that phase. Now it's time even if I buy one piece of clothing, I ask myself how many Indians benefit from this!"

On the work front, Kangana has several projects in the pipeline, including Emergency, which she also directed. Apart from that, she will be seen in Tejas and Chandramukhi 2.
