Kangana Ranaut's blonde highlights were definitely the highlight of her appearances during the promotions of her film Rangoon. The highlights look great on the actress, adding glamour and edge to her personality. Interestingly, Ranaut decided to get this new look to feel better about herself. 

The actress was feeling so down after completing the shooting of Hansal Mehta's Simran in the US that she wanted to do something fun to lift her spirits. "I shot the film for 40 to 50 days where I play a house-keeping staffer. I felt so down after seeing the life at the grassroots level. There is no sunshine and this girl (her character in the film) is waiting for that silver lining. I felt so bad about myself. The first thing I did (after wrapping up the shoot) is I went to New York to my favourite salon," said Ranaut during a recent interview.

Guess what Ranaut's brief to the hairstylist was? She wanted hair like Shakira! "You've got to make me look like Shakira," Ranaut told the stylist. But when the stylist showed her Shakira's look references, the Rangoon actress realised she didn't want to go as light as the international singing sensation. "I told them I don't want it that light. But yes, I wanted to feel like a somebody. After 50 days of Simran I felt like a nobody," said Ranaut.
