Watching the trailer of Rangoon what impressed me most in terms ok look was Kangana Ranaut. She’s had a 360 degree makeover for the film with a look that is once again causing much intrigue among fan and media alike
The film Rangoon is set in the Second World War and Kangana Ranaut plays the role of a daring horse riding whip banishing entertainer Toofan ki Beti who is introduced in the film as Jaanbaaz Miss Julia. During the second world war and later troops on the battle front were treated to special entertainment shows to break the monotony of battle. Many of the top actors of the time like Elizabeth Taylor Judy Garland Lucille Ball all entertained the troops.
Many an entertainer of that era also doubled up as a spy as they had easy access to trop information and movement. From the Rangoon trailer it looks like Kangana fits that bill perfectly. As the trailer progress Kangana is chosen to be a spy as well by her love played by Saif Ali Khan.
As for the inspiration for her character Kangana’s character is modelled on the lead actor in the 1935 film Hunterwali right down to the Zorro type mask. The very westernized character Kangana for most of the film wears either smart dressers skirts of trouser outfits form the era. In sync is her short hairdo and the accessories she wears, straight out of a film of the 1940’s.
Off course Rangoon, as we all know now is a love triangle in which Kangana is the pivot and the object of affection of Shahid Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan who we are sure will pull out every trick in the book to woo her a win her affection. Who will get the lady we will come to know on the 24 February 2017 when Rangoon releases in cinemas
