Vishal Bhardwaj, who is riding high on the success of Haider, which has won accolades in India and abroad, is now all set to make a romantic film with a historical backdrop. Titled Rangoon, the film is a ‘Casablanca style’ love triangle between Kangna Ranaut, Saif Ali Khan and Shahid Kapoor.
The filmmaker not only confirmed the title but further added that this will one of his most expensive films to date and will also be a musical. While Vishal has worked with Shahid Kapoor in Kaminey and Haider, he has worked with Saif Ali Khan in Omkara. However, the two hunks of Bollywood have never come together for a Bollywood film. On the other hand, Vishal Bhardwaj will be working with Kangna Ranaut for the first time.
Elaborating on the plot of Rangoon, Vishal mentioned that the film will focus on the era of Second World War. Further reminiscing about those days filled with bloodshed, the filmmaker added that there are many graves of Indian soldiers in Imphal and Manipur who had lost their lives during this period of World War. In Rangoon, he will portray the way Indians killed their own kith and kin because they were many who were fighting from the side of British Army against freedom fighter Subhash Chandra Bose and his Indian National Army.
