October 09 : Kangana Ranaut, who was gearing up for the shooting of her next film Thalaivi, a biopic on Tamil superstar-turned-politician Jayalalithaa, started learning Bharatnatyam from the renowned south choreographer Gayathri Raguramm.
The Queen actress performed Vijayadashami puja at her dance rehearsal studio on the last day of Durga puja that also coincides with the auspicious occasion of Dussehra. The occasion was considered propitious for the dancers. Gayathri gifted the actress a pair of ghungroos for her hard work, which overwhelmed the Manikarnika actress.
