Kangana Ranaut will be playing the role of a poster girl, Julia in Rangoon!
Having a plot of the Second World War, Rangoon can be described as the mix Moulin Rouge and Saving Private Ryan. Kangana has inspired herself from Fearless Nadia in lead for Huntervali for her character in Rangoon.
A source close to the makers of the film stated,
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 popular daily asked Kangana about the film. She praised Vishal and said,
He’s an amazing director, writer, composer and person. My Julia is beautiful, intense and funny. The film has three heroes.
Vishal Bharadwaj‘s Rangoon also stars Saif Ali Khan and Shahid Kapoor. The movie is set in the 40s.
