12 Celebrities who made news: Kangana Ranaut

There was seldom a day which passed by without these celebs hogging the limelight. Here’s what they did

Kangana Ranaut continues to be controversy’s favourite child. The small town girl manages to keep the grapewine abuzz with her link-ups and relationships, more than her career graph. The self-proclaimed trendsetter made it to the front page after a long time for publically announcing yet another relationship. But this relationship with UK-based doctor Nicholas Lafferty fell flat soon after, with Kangana citing the age old reason of not being ready for a commitment. Others claimed that the actress paid to get herself clicked with her beau and had the pictures published in the media.

After her rumoured break-up, the actress recently returned to Mumbai after travelling around Europe. Reports suggested that she had her parents over to help her get over the split. Sources suggest she will no longer be staying alone and her parents are living with her now.

Kangana had also claimed that she had been approached to endorse the Paris Hilton line in India but the agency rubbished her claims. Reports also seem to suggest that there might be legal action taken against the actress for making false claims.

Ranaut recently walked the ramp for designer Gavin Miguel at the ongoing Blender's Pride Fashion Tour. However, the designer's show stopper dress caused an 'oops' moment for the National Award-winning actress, on the runway. While she strutted the ramp wearing an off shoulder white gown, which cascaded down into a sheer skirt, the thin material of the garment showed more skin than intended and a major part of her behind was on display. Despite this, Kangana walked confidently, but things got ugly when, during the media interaction post the show, a few photographers crept behind to click Kangana's pictures.

Kangana has her hands full right now with ‘Shootout at Wadala,’ ‘Tanu Weds Manu 2’ and ‘Krrish 3’ with Hrithik Roshan.

Some made it for stellar reasons, others for all there is wrong with the society. Here are 12 'newsmakers' that deserve a mention. More »
