Things weren’t as hunky-dory on the sets of the Kangana Ranaut-Saif Ali Khan-Shahid Kapoor Rangoon as was made out to be.
Apparently Kangana, the Queen of rabble-rousers, has come away from the project having rubbed up director Vishal Bharadwaj, and her co-stars Saif Ali Khan and Shahid Kapoorthe wrong way.
A source from the film’s crew reports that there was a lot of tension on the sets of Rangoon. “Pehle toh Shahid aur Saif ke beech mein bass kaam ki baat-cheet hotorahi(Shahid and Saif only spoke on professional matters). Usske baad Kangana ne apna 3-times National award wala card pheka(Kangana threw her three times National award winner’s card). Bahot zyada tension tttha sets pe(there was a lot of tension on the sets).”
Apparently Kangana insisted on gaving Shahid and Saif tips on how to do their scenes. She also wanted to contribute from behind the camera with dialogues and even scenes. But director Vishal Bhardwaj cut her short.
“Vishal very clearly told Kangana he was in-charge and she was to obey his orders.Kangana complied,” says the source.
The source also informs that there was discernible tension between Kangana and Shahid. “Unke beech mein koi history hai(they have a history of some sort).Dono kafi alag-alagrehte the(they stayed away from one another).”
Given the stress the completion of Rangoon was no less than a miracle. Luckily the film has shaped up just the way Bhardwaj wanted it.
“Kangana has given another National award winning performance,” says the source.
