Kangana Ranaut character in Vishal Bhardwaj’s Rangoon has finally been revealed. She is to play the role of Jaanbaaz Miss Julia, a 1940s action diva. Rangoon is said to be Vishal Bhardwaj’s dream project, on which he has been working since past 7 years. The movie is set against the backdrop od the second world war and, revolves around a Casablanca-like love triangle. The movie stars Saif Ali Khan and Shahid Kapoor as the main male leads.
The first look of the Kangana shows her as a poster girl, wearing a black leather outfit with a whip in her hand, sporting a Marilyn Monroe- like haircut, with a white stallion neighing close by.
“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,” informs a source close to the development.
