Kangana Ranaut and sister Rangoli
Kangana Ranaut in a summery yellow dress was positively glowing when we met her at Priyanka Chopra's party. The actress had been receiving congra-tulations on her sister Rangoli's pregnancy.
"It will be the first grandchild in the family," she says, adding, "And naturally, my parents and the entire family are overjoyed!" Rangoli, who had been handling Ranaut's professional matters, had recently been through a tough time after she'd miscarried, but now, in her fourth month, she is absolutely thrilled, she says.
The national award-winning actress' pretty, slight and soft-spoken sibling had been by her side, taking care of her, even as she took care of her own home, hearth and husband of seven years, who is an executive with a leading Indian conglomerate. "Currently, she's been advised complete rest," says her delighted younger sister. Does that mean Rangoli is not handling her affairs now?
"Yes. I've got new people," says Ranaut. "And that's fine. This is part of life," she adds. "Rangoli's peace and happiness is far more important. In any case, I'm pretty sorted now."
Not a candle in the wind any more, we joke. "Yes. Not a candle in the wind anymore," she laughs. And then, she winks.
