Rangoon Movie Story/Plot Wiki
“Rangoon” will follow the story of a love triangle set in the backdrop of World War 2. The love triangle of Saif, Kangana and Shahid is expected to be based on the 1942 American romantic drama movie “Casablanca”. This is the second movie of Shahid Kapoor with director and composer Vishal Bhardwaj. Their previous collaboration was 2014 blockbuster movie “Haider”. Kangana Ranaut will be appearing as Julia and her role will be based on “Fearless Nadia” who was an actress and a stunt woman known for her work in 1935 Indian movie “Hunterwali”.
There are also reports that Kangana has been visiting an island in Mexico to learn solo living which is going to be an important part of her role in the movie. Brandon Davis is another member of the cast who will be taking the role of a British Soldier. The backdrop of World War 2 gives hint of the 1998 American epic movie “Saving Private Ryan”. So “Ragoon” is most likely going to be a mélange of “Casablanca” and “Saving Private Ryan”. There are reports that the shooting for the project stopped due to an injury received by Shahid Kapoor in January. This will be the first time Kangana, Shahid and Saif will appear together in a movie. So lets see how the chemistry works out.
