Two heroines in Vishal Bhardwaj’s Rangoon

Filmmaker Vishal Bhardwaj’s next film ‘Rangoon’ is going to get bigger and better. The latest buzz is that the film will have two leading ladies, not one as reported earlier.

The ‘Haider’ director has already cast Shahid Kapoor, Saif Ali Khan and Kangana Ranaut to play important roles in the film. He is still on a lookout for a new girl to play the second lead in the movie.

A source close to the film said ”The audition for the second lead is in progress on a daily basis, but he (Vishal) still hasn’t found a suitable actress. He doesn’t want a beautiful looking girl but is on a looking for someone who looks ordinary but real”

“The second female lead has an equally powerful role to play and Vishal doesn’t want to take a risk on casting anyone with less talent” the source added

Rangoon, which is said to be Bhardwaj’s most expensive project till date, is set against the backdrop of Second World War where a lot of Indians lost their lives owing to the fact that Indian soldiers from the British army fought against Subhash Chandra Bose’s Indian National Army in Rangoon.

The film will go on floors in December this year.



  • EXCITED !!! HAIDER, WIth Bang Bang Clash, collected 60 cr with very less screen space !!
    Imagine getting full-fledged solo release !!

    With critical acclaim I bet this one can go 180-200 !! MARK MY WORDS NOW EVERYONE !!!

  • After watching Haider i am excited for Rangoon . The title of the movie is brilliant and interesting . Vishal is a brilliant director . Maqbool and Omkara were brilliant movies but were Box Office failures . Kaminey and Haider were successful . He lost his way badly with 7 Khoon Maaf and Matru . I also loved Makdee it is a very sweet movie . The combo of Vishal and Shahid has been terrific . Only 2 movies of VB has been successful and both of them was with Shahid . In case of Shahid he has given his best performances in Kaminey and Haider . Saif is also a good actor but his choice of movies have been pathetic . Kangana is going through the best phase of her life . I just hope Vishal manages the budget in a proper manner . History was my favourite subject in school so a movie based on the 2nd World War will be exciting for me . I hope Vishal, Shahid, Saif and Kangana can deliver something brilliant and exceptional .

  • Anothr Haider or better than it is coming coz Vishal each film is better than the previous one and there will be no exception here. I dont knw why he casted Saif for a movie of director which depends on acting and content. Saif will spoil the movie and if the movie fails it will be him who will be responsible . He is trying to much extra to be loved by audience and extra is over the head and noone likes his movie. All is well will be a disaster movie , all songs are beautiful but he does not suits the role or doesnot knw acting. Wat a waste of name Bachan

  • If aamir does it then it will become blockbuster becoz aamir can take out his clothes any time when it is about money !

  • wow
    vishal is a gem.
    but sadly most of his movies are offbeat and they underperform.
    no doubt they are praised by critics but i think a section of audience likes it too.he shows the stark reality and not to impress a group of specific people which other directors do.
    rangoon will be a hit In Sha Allah. xcited to see saif and shahid together onscreen

  • Neeraj Karayat .. bro do u watch movies by its collections ? are u getting paid for d success of a movie.U have nothing to do by its collection. just go & watch quality movies. let d producers think about collection. Its not ur business.

  • @neeraj
    Range jyda mention krdi you ne ?
    It’s 45-65 cr ?

    The story lookin similar too Akshays airlift ..Sayd

  • I am big fan of vishal sir’s movie. Superhit jodi shahid and vishal sir is coming after kaminey and haider. Rangoon , the movie name is interesting. Waiting………

  • @ultron
    Someone already said it for salman so dont be over smart ….Stop copying others.
    About the topic although movie will be content oriented but would be boring also.A movie with world war 2 background will be very dark and getting universal acceptance would be difficult.
    100cr would be the limit with positive wom.

  • Shahid ke ache din shuru all his upcoming films will be hits esp shaandar which will be huge hit….
