Watch the movie 'Kumbalangi Nights' and you won't miss talking about cute and sweet girl Babymol aka Anna Ben. The first probable question that may come to your mind would be, “Are you like Babymol?” and Anna would say, “Bold? Yes, but style varies a lot.”

In 'Kumbalangi Nights', she was seen in 'naadan' avatar with simple floral churidars but in real life, Anna is more stylish and modern.

“I was working in Bangalore as a fashion designer when I applied to the casting call of the movie.”


With curly hair, Anna Ben prefers casuals like denims and tops for regular outings while she likes embellished anarkali and churidhars with light hues for special occasions. Saree barely comes in handy for the actress but for a recent photoshoot, Anna tried that for a change.

She was seen in a laced-red saree with black border perfecting it with matching laced black blouse with net sleeves and trust us she looked stunning. She chose to decorate hair with red roses, black bindi and black hangings and looked more like a portrait.


For photoshoots, it's the costume designer and stylists who opt everything for Anna. But coming to her personal tastes, she would barely pick a saree and would even go with big ringed or long hangings. Bindi's would go occasionally for Anna as the dresses is what matters most.

And with the latest photoshoot, she proved that she can slay in both tradition and stylish avatars. Ask her if she has any plans to straighten up her hair and she replies, 'never'. “It's sometimes heavy and irritating to carry the curls but this is what makes me different I believe,” she said.
