Shahid Kapoor, Kangana Ranaut in Vishal Bhardwaj’s Rangoon!

Director Vishal Bhardwaj has roped in the beautiful and super-talented Kangana Ranaut for his next film. She will be paired opposite Vishal’s favourite actor Shahid Kapoor in a film titled Rangoon. It is being said that it was producer Sajid Nadiadwala who wanted to cast Kangana after watching her on-screen histrionics in Tanu Weds Manu Returns.

Both Kangana and Shahid have worked with Vishal before, although they haven’t been paired together. Shahid has given two of his best and most acclaimed performances under Vishal in Kaminey and Haider, for which he also won the best actor award at Filmfare this year.

Talking about Kangana, Vishal said “She was my first choice for Rangoon but till I could offer it to her, I didn’t want to talk about  it because I was afraid kissi ki nazar lag zayegi (it’ll get jinxed). I’m sure we’ll challenge each other as we approach this cinematic journey together.”

Rangoon will be set in the period of World War 2 and the battle that Indian soldiers fought there. It will also be Vishal’s most expensive film.



  • @Indicine, Yangon is originally name is Rangoon. Is this about Myanmar? Please reply…

    @Myanmar:Yes,obviously it is about ur place as it was called “Rangoon” back then at the time of world war 2.

  • Vishal Bhardwaj is a brilliant director and showed his class in Haider . The cast of the movie is looking solid . Saif is going through a bad phase and this movie is really important for him . First of all his upcoming movie Phantom has to be successful . Because if Phantom flops then it will be very difficult for Saif . Both Saif and Shahid have given their Best Performances in Vishal’s movies . Saif was his best in Omkara and so was Shahid in Haider . Kangana is also going through the Best Phase of her career and she can also give a cracking performance in this movie . I hope this movie is something exceptional and i am waiting for the release date . @ Indicine After reading this news i think the movie between Vishal and Hrithik has not been confirmed .

  • Wow! Good news . Rangoon will be sure blockbuster. Go shahid go. Nice to see both kangana and shahid in same movie. It will be hatrick of due of shahid and vishal sir for
