Viacom18 Motion Pictures, Sajid Nadiadwala, and Vishal Bhardwaj officially come together for a blockbuster film in the making, Rangoon!
The intense love story is set in the 1940’s. Rangoon will bring together the work of B-town’s finest talent in one of the most ambitious projects ever made. The film stars national award winner Kangana Ranaut, Saif Ali Khan, and Shahid Kapoor. The film is back by the soul stirring symphonies of Vishal Bhardwaj with the addition of maestro lyricist Gulzar.
Viacom18 Motion Pictures COO, Ajit Andhare said,
Our endeavor at Viacom18 Motion Pictures has been to redefine a mainstream Hindi film. In that quest, we have always produced films that marry great content with a wide commercially appeal. Our unique collaboration with Vishal and Sajid who are filmmakers of great pedigree in their own space reflects that approach. Rangoon is not only a larger than life epic love drama but has a gripping story at its heart. It will enthrall the contemporary audience.
Director and producer, Vishal Bhardwaj added,
Amalgamating a story like this with experts from the industry is like a dream come true for me. I am delighted that a project so close to my heart has not only started shaping up well but will be portrayed as an epic story of love and drama in a never seen before avatar.
Producer Sajid Nadiadwala also mentioned,
Our company believes in working with directors with great vision and Vishal undoubtedly stands tall in this league. His storytelling is unique and he always finds a way to bring a great sense of characterization to any film he’s working on. And along with Viacom 18 Motion Pictures, we are all set and very excited to bring Rangoon to the audience.
Rangoon is set to releasing this year in 2016; the final date is still to be decided.
