Actress Kangana Ranaut says her 'Rangoon' co-stars Shahid Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan are incredible actors and she is fortunate to share screen space with them.
'Rangoon' a love story set against the backdrop of World War II brings together the three actors on-screen for the first time. "They are incredible actors. They are amazing with Vishal Bhardwaj sir (director) and he has given them wonderful characters in the films that he did with them. They are both very special, very natural and spontaneous.”
"I feel fortunate to be working with great actors like them. I liked Saif as Langda Tyagi in 'Omkara' and Shahid was incredible in 'Haider'. They (Bhardwaj, Saif, and Shahid) have great tuning and they had the same energy for this film," said Kangana.
Praising Bhardwaj the 29-year-old actress says that the filmmaker has the courage to deal with subjects which no one will ever think of bringing on-screen.
"He has the courage to take on subjects which are different like 'Rangoon' is a love story in the backdrop of world war II. It is a very courageous move and not many filmmakers will present a love story in the rugged and rustic backdrop of war." "He has that undying desire to push the envelope and go beyond what people expect from him," she added.
In the movie the 'Queen' star portrays the life and times of Mary Ann Evans aka Fearless Nadia, Bollywood's first original stunt-woman still remembered for her fiery role in the movie 'Hunterwali'.
"She (Fearless Nadia) is a stuntwoman and it's an amalgamation of many characters in the film. I am known to speak my mind and to say things that I stand for is right. That sort of conviction and identity was important for the role,” said the actress.
"I feel this character has landed in my lap because I signify that part (fearless) in today's contemporary actresses that we have," said Kangana.
