Kangana Ranaut reveals interesting details character in Rangoon
Kangana Ranaut reveals interesting details character rangoon
The makers of ‘Rangoon’ released the first song called ‘Bloody Hell’ from the movie today and Kangana Ranaut‘s look as the Hunterwali left us asking for more. The actress has always done complete justice to her characters and this one’s going to be no different.
While it’s being assumed that her role is modelled on the yesteryear actor Fearless Nadia, Kangana has something else to say. She gave out some really interesting details about her character Julia in the movie. Speaking to a popular daily, Kangana said, “Julia is ambitious in life, in love. She lives a dual life, loves two men at the same time. It stumped me how feisty ladies were celebrated in pre-independence India. There was a spy girl, hunterwali, chabook wali… they were hugely popular. Gulzar sa’ab and Vishal sir introduce Julia with much passion in a larger-than-life song like this. There isn’t an element of judgment in the way they see her. She seeks sexual freedom and is conflicted, but they have portrayed it as pure innocent love. The very fact that they see someone as flawed as her worthy of worshipping is progressive.”
She further spoke about her dance experience in the movie. “I am better known for my so-bad-it’s-good dance. But in this film, I did three major dance sequences in the first schedule (15 day-long). Dance in the ’40s was about high energy and for me, it was all too new. I rehearsed a lot and I don’t think I was amazing. But, I wasn’t terrible either. Julia is a first-rate performer and to justify her popularity, I needed to be damn good. However, I was determined. Even if it meant breaking bones, I had to do it for this part.”
Kangana also spoke about the intense sequence where she had to whip herself. She said, “It has me whipping myself. My character is sucked in by guilt and inflicts pain on herself. When the shot was done, everyone applauded. That has to happen at least once on set! I need to know I am good at what I do. I’d also run to Vishal sir (Bhardwaj) for reassurance.”
‘Rangoon’ is helmed by Vishal Bhardwaj and stars Saif Ali Khan and Shahid Kapoor apart from Kangana. The movie is all set to release on February 24, 2017.
