Now, 'I support Kangana Ranaut' print saree for sale
The Surat-based businessman who came up with the idea says it's not a promotional tactic, but a means to show solidarity with the actress.
In order to express his support to actor Kangana Ranaut who recently left Mumbai amidst a spat with ruling party Shiv Sena, a Surat-based textile businessman has manufactured a 'Manikarnika' styled saree with the actor's portrait imprinted on it.
Rajat Dawar who owns shops in the Universal textile market in Gujarat's Surat has come up with this saree and said that what happened with the actor is something that cannot be accepted.
He said, "She wanted to raise her voice to support something but her voice was suppressed and her office was demolished. So we wanted to support her and came up with this idea to manufacture the saree with 'I support Kangana Ranaut' written on it."
He further said, "We launched this saree yesterday and have already received multiple orders. The price range starts from Rs1,000 to Rs5,000 depending upon the fabric on which it has been made."
On being asked about the permission to imprint Kangana's portrait on the fabric, Rajat added, "We have not made this saree to promote our brand in any way, but only with the motive to support her in her fight."
