Can Kangna Ranaut pull off a nautch girl act?

The Krrish 3 actor is all set to portray a mujra dancer in Vishwas Patil’s Rajjo. But will she pull it off with élan?

Ever since Kangna Ranaut started her film career with Anurag Basu’s Gangster, she’s excelled mostly in portraying mentally unstable and disturbed characters, be it in Woh Lamhe or Fashion. It’s only with Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai that Ms Kangs changed the course, and later went on to do some light-hearted roles in movies like No Problem, Tanu Weds Manu and Rascals.

There’s no denying that Kangna is a powerhouse performer, and she is careful in selecting the right kind of films and characters. So it didn’t come as a surprise when Ms Ranaut chose to play the role of a mujra dancer (nautch girl) in Vishwas Patil’s Rajjo alongside versatile actors, Mahesh Manjrekar and Prakash Raj. Coz unlike her contemporaries, she is known to tread on the road less traveled.

In decades of Hindi cinema, we have seen eternal beauties like Meena Kumari, Rekha and Madhuri Dixit dance their way to fame for their effective portrayal of mujra dancers in films like Pakeezah, Umrao Jaan and Devdas respectively. And wethinks it’s actually going to be a cakewalk for Kangna too considering that the she has already started training in dance, and has been catching up on movies like Umrao Jaan and Pakeezah to learn the nuances of mujra. Now, if only she pays equal attention to her diction (remember she screaming ‘Bustard’ which actually meant Bastard in Fashion?) Right Kangna?
