A love triangle where Saif will play the role of a director, Kangana, a famous actress of 40’s and Shahid will play the role of an army man. Set in the background of World War II, the movie has the musical charm of Moulin Rouge, the romance of Casablanca and the intensity of Saving Private Ryan, as per the movie makers’ claim.
“I am very happy with what we have achieved during the shooting of Rangoon. This film is closest to my heart and I want to make sure this is seen as my best work,”
Originally Rangoon was about to be released in September 2016, but due to some post production issues now the movie has decided to be launched in February 2017. Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘Raees’ and Hrithik Roshan’s ‘Kaabil’ will be released in February 2017, so no doubt the Rangoon may face some big time competition. But still the makers of the movie have decided to release it in February 2017, and that ensures that the flick is able enough to compete with the other big fat releases.
