Karuna requested this music , I must confess I have heard it for the first time and I looooved it.
Karuna is a full-time pug mommy and dabbles in a couple of things part time. She is a fashion stylist and loves working on different concepts. She also runs a catering and event styling company called ‘One full meals’ with her partner. She has also dabbled in a few very interesting interior projects for residential spaces one of them for Ramya – a leading actress and an MP from Karnataka. Karuna also helps Ramya style her wardrobe.
As Arif, Karuna’s friend puts it “She is so gorgeous I can’t even put it in words “and I totally agree !
Your favorite holiday destination and what is it that you always pack when travelling ?
I am not going to pick a few places, that’s unfair. Every new place has given me great experience that has taught me something new. I usually pack basics and lots of scarves/shawls depending on the weather and a couple of statement jewellery pieces and my mojris.
(dress : Bandhej , woolen Shawl : Fab India)
Your style icon
My Ammamma ( grandmother) , Deepti Naval , and every other Rabari woman in Kutch
(Ajrakh printed kurta and indigo cotton scarf with aquamarine tassles both from Fab India and a flower given by a stranger in Pushkar )
( Saree from Prasiddhi silks in Bangalore and cotto ikat blouse made by my tailor Zakir)
Your favorite movie and why ?
I dont have a favourite ,but so many good movies!
What comes to my head right now: Pestonjee for the fact that it has all my favourite actors and the art direction, Chashme Badoor because Deepti Naval and Farooq Sheikh – what’s not to love , Garden State because its real and adorably awkward , Amelie because clothes and every frame looks so beautiful , Saagara Sangamam because KAMAL HASSAN and his brilliant acting , 1980 Ananthapuram because Swathi is an actress extraordinaire and this movie just went on to prove that.
I think Karuna looks like a movie star herself!
