Rangoon stars Kangana as the solo female lead...
There have been reports that Esha Gupta has performed an item song in Vishal Bhardwaj’s Rangoon and that the number has been snipped out because the film’s leading lady Kangana Ranaut wanted it out. The rumour has been gaining credence, as none of the principal players involved in the project has bothered to clarify. However Esha finally came forward to rubbish the rumour. Says Esha, “I was never offered the song. I don’t even know if there is an item song in Rangoon or not. I think it’s just some fake news doing the rounds maybe, but even the makers will agree, I have no idea about anything related to Rangoon.”
Esha Gupta will be next seen in the awaited Akshay Kumar film Rustom. The film is based on the infamous Nanavati murder case that shook the nation in the 1950's. Ileana D'Cruz also appears as the female lead.
Rangoon starring Shahid Kapoor, Kangana Ranaut and Saif Ali Khan is set in the 1940s amidst the turmoil of India's independence struggle and will feature some epic historic references. The film wrapped its final shoot schedule a couple of weeks back and the entire team, including Bhardwaj, producer Sajid Nadiadwala and Ajit Andhare, COO, Viacom18 Motion Pictures, are delighted with the results.
While Shahid will be seen portraying an Indian National Army (INA) soldier in the film, Kangana will essay the role of a Broadway actress and Saif will be seen playing a filmmaker from the black-and-white cinema era.
The Maqbool helmer, Vishal, says for him and Saif Rangoon is "even more" special since it has been ten years since Omkara. “Seeing the confidence and excitement in the team of 'Rangoon', looks like we have much to expect in early 2017," he added.
