Kangana Ranaut to play an actress in Rangoon
Kangana Ranaut is looking forward to Vishal Bhardwaj’s 1940-set drama Rangoon that will see her playing an actress, who is romantically involved with her mentor.
Riding high on the success of her latest film Tanu Weds Manu Returns, the National Award-winning actress will star alongside Shahid Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan in the movie.
While Vishal got career-defining performances out of Shahid and Saif in Kaminey, <g data-gr-id="28">Haider</g> and Omkara, it remains to be seen how he uses Kangana’s talent in the period drama.
Kangana calls the movie a ‘passionate love story’, which is set in a turbulent period of Indian history.
“It is a film which is set in the 1940s during the World War II. It is about three characters and one of
them is a superstar and her mentor, who she is romantically involved with. Another one is a soldier. It is about INA, <g data-gr-id="31">independence</g> and so many other things. It is a very passionate love story,” Kangana told a <g data-gr-id="30">media</g> person.
Besides Rangoon, the 28-year-old actor will star in Ketan Mehta’s Rani Laxmibai and Hansal Mehta’s Simran. She is also in talks for Tigmanshu Dhulia’s biopic on late actress Meena <g data-gr-id="29">Kumari</g> but it is not yet confirmed, Kangana said.
The actor will be next seen opposite Imran Khan in Nikhil Advani’s Katti Batti, which hits <g data-gr-id="25">theatres</g> on September 18.
The actor said it is a very emotional drama about relationships that unfolds in a thriller-like manner.
