Kangana to do an ad with Salman

Mumbai, Apirl 30 - If there are any doubts about Kangana Ranaut's growing clout in the entertainment market, her latest triumph should put all questions to rest. She's not only been chosen by international shoe company Red Tape to endorse their brand, the actress will shoot with Salman Khan for a TV ad.
So far Salman endorsed the brand.
'Until now they manufactured footwear only for men. And Salman was their brand ambassador. The company is launching its female line-up with me. And that's quite an honour, considering it's my first endorsement,' Kangana told IANS.
What made them choose her?
'It was my casual looks, I guess. The brand isn't associated with formal shoes - only sporty footwear, sneakers etc. They want me to endorse their shoes in my jeans and with my curly hair. Very youth-oriented. And the fact that they expect my career to grow with their new female line up of shoes makes the endorsement a bigger responsibility for me.'
The actress, who made a successful debut with 'Gangster - A Love Story' and repeated it with 'Woh Lamhe', recently shot spots for hoardings and magazines.
Apparently Red Tape has paid Kangana a whopping figure and has promised to enhance the amount by 30 percent in the next financial year.
'At this rate I'll soon realise my dream of buying my own house. The shoes and my career are supposed to journey together. It's a good thought.
'I'm excited about the ad with Salman. I've always been his fan. I think he's the only rock star in our cinema. I had watched him dance at an awards function and hoped I'd be paired with him one day. It's happening sooner than I thought.'
