MUMBAI—National Award winning actress Kangana Ranaut, who walked as the showstopper at the Lakme Fashion Week ramp here, says during her growing up days, she used to impersonate models and always hoped she would be accepted in showbiz.

Asked if she thought she would make it big in the fashion world too, Kangana Ranaut said: "When I was young I didn't have any guarantee, but I hoped that I get accepted. I remember in the night times I used to rehearse. I was a science student, and I was hard working.

"I used to wake up in the nights and wear heels and try and impersonate the catwalk I used to see on Fashion TV. I remember working very hard and hoping I make it someday."

The 31-year-old actress said every time she walks the runway, it takes her back to her days of "Fashion," the Madhur Bhandarkar directorial in which plays a supermodel.

"That's the only time I played a supermodel, and I used to rehearse a lot because I never had a modeling background. I never modeled before. So, now when I do these walks it definitely takes me back to my 'Fashion' days," she said.

Ranaut on Aug. 25 night walked the ramp for designer duo Pankaj & Nidhi's show presented by Nokia at the ongoing fashion gala's Winter/Festive 2018 edition.

The "Queen" actress wore a midnight blue asymmetrical dress with black embellishments. She completed her look with cobalt blue eyeliner, nude make-up and tied her hair into a chic side-parted ponytail.

On the garment, she said: "The credit goes to Pankaj & Nidhi for my look and team who have done my hair, make-up, and entire styling. I am comfortable because their garments is not just for editorials or for ramp walks. It is for real people to wear for everyday events, parties or festivals. I just feel that not just beautiful or edgy but are also practical."
