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’, ‘Haider’ 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, independence and so many other things. It is a very passionate love story,” Kangana told.

The actress will be next seen opposite Imran Khan in Nikhil Advani’s ‘Katti Batti’, which hits theatres on September 18.
