Kangana Ranaut says ‘Rangoon’ is not based on any living or dead person

Vishal Bhardwaj’s ‘Rangoon’ is surely one of the most awaited films of the year. However, the film has been pulled into a legal tussle. A lawsuit has been filed against the makers of the film, by Wadia Movietone Pvt Ltd, who are claiming that Kangana Ranaut character, Miss Julia is based on stunt actor Mary Evans, popularly known as Fearless Nadia.

Recently, while talking to a news agency, when Kangana was asked about it, she said, “I think there is some legal hassle around that. First of all, we cannot comment on a matter when it’s already in the court, but we can assure you that it’s not based on any living or dead person.”

Well, we wonder if the legal tussle will create a problem in the release of the film which is slated to hit the screens on February 24. (Also Read: The intimate scenes in ‘Rangoon’ were not as pretty as they look. Read why!)

The movie which is produced by Sajid Nadiadwala, also stars Saif Ali Khan and Shahid Kapoor. It is set against the backdrop of World War II.
