Kangana travels back into history
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. Besides Rangoon, the 28-year-old actress 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 Kumari.
