Angiya is a conversion of modern day bra into the olden day’s Indian lingerie. The concept is developed by a Mumbai-based entrepreneur, producer and director Priyanka Thakran who feels that modern bra is not comfortable at all for women. According to her, an Angiya is comfortable yet sexy lingerie with make in India treatment.
Priyanka is a Mumbai-based film director and producer who has a been a part of movie ‘RUSH’ that she recently completed the production featuring Imran Hashmi and Sagarika Ghatge. When I asked her as why she decided to enter into the sector that is away from her core business she replied saying, “I have worked as a film producer and occasionally directed ad films and feature films for close to 20 years. As a film producer and director, you have to overlook all aspects and all departments that work cohesively together to create the end product, namely the film. One of these departments is “Costumes”. So I wouldn’t say I have deviated too far from what I was doing earlier. In fact, if anything with this endeavor I am choosing to have my full focus on only what would have been one of many departments I would be spearheading.”
