We’ve got a lady crush and it’s not on Sonam Kapoor.

Kangana Ranaut Sabyasachi sari

In the sea of fake laughs and measured, politically correct answers, Kangana Ranaut is a refreshing change from today’s Indian actors. She doesn’t shy away from calling out sexism and nepotism in the film industry, has critiqued her contemporaries for promoting skin lightening ads, and admits to taking on a few roles just for the money because, sometimes, you need to pay the bills.

Herewith, 5 reasons why we love Kangana Ranaut (and why we’re taking a break from our love affair with Sonam Kapoor’s wardrobe): 

1. She flaunts her curly hair. How many Bollywood actors do you see with naturally curly hair?

2. Her love affair (or contract) with Burberry Prorsum. So many beautiful things.

3. Her candid interviews, where she calls out directors and producers for being sexist, and her male co-stars for being self-centred.

4. Her brilliant performance (and dialogue writing to boot!) in her recent film, Queen. We loved this movie!

5. Her chameleon-like style (much like her sci-fi character in action flick, Krrish 3). Slick, Hollywood-waves and a Gucci gown one day; ombre coloured curly hair with a Moschino Cheap and Chic sweater and pleated mini skirt the next. A study in perfection.
