Mumbai: Bollywood beauty Kangna Ranaut is on the road to becoming a fashion designer. News has it that the curvaceous babe has decided to design her own clothes in two of her upcoming films. It is also being said that the actress is likely to launch her own line of clothes after that.

Bollywood sources confirm that the films in question are David Dhawan`s ‘Rascals’ (produced by Sanjay Dutt) and Priyadarshan`s ‘Tez’ (earlier titled ‘Bullet Train’ and produced by Ratan Jain).

Sources reveal that some designers, including Anaita Shroff, were short listed for ‘Rascal’, but things did not materialize due to budget and date issues. Anaita however denies the same. “I didn`t sign ‘Rascals’. I had date problems since I`m working at that time on Abbas Mastan`s The Italian Job. There was no question of any budget issues,” she informed.

Well, whatever the constraint, but ace director David Dhawan apparently told Kangna that she should take a call on her clothes. Adds a source: "Dhawan is quite impressed by Kangna`s sense of dressing. And so is Priyadarshan."

It should be remembered here that only recently it was reported that hotel heiress Paris Hilton had asked Kangna to be the face of her fashion brand in Asia.
