Kangana Ranaut Calls Out Fashion Magazine For Using Her Old Pics Despite Banning Her

Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut, known for not mincing her words, has been voicing her opinions on the toxicity of Bollywood. She called out nepotism in B-town, spoke against blind items and even slammed filmmakers Karan Johar and Mukesh Bhatt.

The ‘Queen’ actor has now called out celebrity stylist Anaita Shroff Adajania for using her old pictures and videos for her magazine (Anaita is the style editor and now fashion director for Vogue India) despite being banned by them for many years, reported DNA.

Retweeting the magazine’s article on her, Kangana questioned if it was fair for them to keep using her old videos to keep making money.

In a statement, the actor also revealed how the magazine had earlier refused to put her on their cover claiming she wasn’t an ‘A-lister’.

“During my movie ‘Fashion’, released in 2008, Vogue did a cover with Priyanka Chopra and refused to put me on their cover, they said I am not an A-lister.”

“In 2014 Vogue approached me for a cover but Anaita refused to style me, she sent her assistant and they shot it in Mukesh mills (Mumbai-based ruined mill).”

Recalling her 2015 shoot with the magazine, Kangana said, “In 2015, post my sudden ascend to the top position, they said if I want to do covers with them then I must attend their beauty awards. I requested like other film stars I too want to shoot outdoors for a cover story with Vogue, I requested that Anaita styles me, they promised but again they shot my cover in Mukesh mills the same location they did the last cover and when I asked for clothes fitting they said ‘if you want Anaita to style you she will directly come to location no fittings for you’. This was shocking behaviour. I felt so humiliated, those are the only two covers I did with them,” she added.

The ‘Manikarnika’ actor further said how she was asked to do a few favours to be featured in the fashion magazine. “But during ‘Manikarnika’, I spoke to their head Alex and told him I need to promote my film. I wished to do a cover with them, they asked for few favours like attend their beauty award and shoot a cover for their upcoming magazine but they refuse to shoot the promised Vogue cover story with me for any of my movie promotions.”

“But I see that they keep using my pictures and videos to promote themselves, is this fair? Isn’t it supposed to be beneficial for both the parties involved?”

According to Republic TV, Kangana claimed that the magazine in question has not collaborated with her for five years because fashion designer (and the magazine’s fashion director) Anaita Shroff Adajania, is close to a leading Bollywood producer.

While Kangana has slapped them with some serious allegations, neither the magazine nor Anaita has responded yet.
