Kangana Ranaut and Shahid Kapoor have worked together for the first time in Vishal Bharadwaj’s Rangoon. Both actors are playing on-screen lovers. However, far from their on-screen characters, the duo reportedly shared cold vibes during the making of the film. However, Shahid has said “all’s good” between both of them.
During a recent chat with the firebrand actress, she told us, “We were shooting in a remote location where a little makeshift cottage was erected. Shahid and I were sharing the cottages with our respective teams. Every morning, I would wake up to this mad hip-hop music. And he would exercise listening to crazy trance and techno songs blasting from the speakers. I was fed up and wanted to shift out. Sharing the cottage with Shahid was a nightmare,” she says with a laugh.
Shooting in a hostile terrain was not difficult for the actress since she hails from the hills. “Initially, it was a bit taxing because I was suddenly taken from an urban location to an extremely remote location with no network. But, gradually, it became a lot easier since I am a mountain girl. But Shahid would often freak out,” she adds.
Working on the film was a life-changing experience for her. “This is probably the best script that I have ever heard. The film revolves around my character, Julia, and it [playing it] was demanding. But, it is a role that comes to an actor once in their lifetime.”
Rangoon is an upcoming Indian Hindi-language drama film, directed by Vishal Bhardwaj and produced by Sajid Nadiadwala and Viacom 18 Motion Pictures. The project is a period film set during World War II (1939-1945) and supposedly portrays the life and times of Mary Ann Evans aka Fearless Nadia, Bollywood’s first original stunt-woman still remembered for her fiery role in the movie Hunterwali. It stars Saif Ali Khan, Shahid Kapoor and Kangana Ranaut in lead roles. The film is scheduled for release on 24 February 2017.
