Hindi Film Villain Ranjeet's Daughter Divyanka Chose Fashion Over Films

Hindi film villain Ranjeet's daughter chose fashion over films. What's on finds out where you can shop for her corsets and tailored dresses.
PLUS: You can love them, you can hate them, but you can't ignore them brand of resin sandals available at a standalone Crocs store. And one more stylish reason for men to lose their paunch

Father and veteran villain Ranjeet, created drama on 75 mm, daughter Divyanka dreams of evoking a similar reaction from audiences with her garments. "I love entertaining people through my designs," says the chirpy 21-year-old, who is off to Beijing to participate at the Triumph Inspiration Award, a lingerie competition slated for July 31.

A student of Raffles Design Institute, Divyanka's Lady-Ivy lingerie ensemble was chosen from among two dozen entries across India. She now competes with contestants from 31 countries. "The idea behind the lingerie piece was a woman's fascination to drive a man crazy with her beauty. Uma Thurman's character of Poison Ivy from Batman and Robin, was an obvious inspiration since it was all about making men go weak in the knees with one blow of a magical potion," says Divyanka.

The designer may have inherited a dramatic streak from her dad, but it was mother Naazneen who instilled a sense of design. Without any formal training in designing, Naazneen managed to dress up Ranjeet's friends, even co-stars. Shopping online for garments turned curiosity into a solid career, for Divyanka, leaving Ranjeet wondering "Why fashion designing?" For someone who is yet to graduate, Divyanka already finds her name in the credits of Raell Padamsee's play Noises Off, where she's dressed three characters. Her label GigiB is inspired by the 1958 musical starring Audrey Hepburn. "Dad wanted to call me Gigi. But according to shashtras, my name had to begin with a 'D'. But I'm still called Gigi at home."
