National Award-winning actress Kangana Ranaut, known for her outspoken and honest views, feels that the modern woman is smart, confident and has a "strong sense of identity".
"The modern woman is smart, confident and independent. She has her own opinions and a strong sense of identity. Today's women know how to express themselves and carry their attitude with unmatched style!" Kangana told reporters here.
"Women are no longer allowing anything to define them, apart from their own self-expression," she added.
Kangana has impressed Indian cinegoers with her versatile acting skills and choice of bold and unconventional roles. Little wonder that she is touted as the 'Queen' of Bollywood.
With meaty roles in her kitty and a head-turning fashion sense, she's taken the next step forward with her association with the trendy ethnic wear brand, Melange by Lifestyle.
Talking about her personal style sensibility, the actress says: "Style is a way of expressing oneself and my style should tell the world who I am. I just need to be comfortable and confident in what I wear and that's half the battle won".
She also feels that change is a constant in fashion.
"There are no hard and fast rules that I play by. My sensibility is all about boho chic," Kangana said, while adding that modern Indian women are "way more fashion forward and confident in the way they dress."
"They're experimenting, they're moving forward with styles, they're looking fresher, and edgier styles, but most of all, they're reinventing styles with confidence," she said.
On the work front, Kangana will next be seen onscreen in Vishal Bhardwaj's 'Rangoon', which also stars Saif Ali Khan and Shahid Kapoor.
