Revealed: Kangana Ranaut’s character in ‘Rangoon’
Kangana Ranaut‘s last film ‘Katti Batti‘ was a dud at the box office. But, her upcoming films are likely to make up for it. Kangana is now filming for Hansal Mehta’s ‘Simran’ and is also a part of Vishal Bhardwaj’s ‘Rangoon’.
Bhardwaj, whose last release ‘Haider‘ was a Shakespearean adaptation of ‘Hamlet’, is crafting ‘Rangoon’ as a love-triangle where Kangana plays Miss Julia, a diva from 40’s. Kangana’s character, a fierce woman in spirit and a great dancer and actress, reminds us of Mary Ann Evans, a stunt-woman from the 30’s.
“Julia is not Fearless Nadia but is a ’40s diva in her own right who came into films via theatre and as was the convention at the time, went to the front to entertain soldiers fighting the Second World War. That’s where Julia who is in love with a producer, played by Saif Ali Khan, meets Shahid Kapoor’s character and loses her heart again, bringing grit, glamour and romance into this intense war-drama,” a source told a popular website.
The film is slated to release coming February.
