• Read Kareena Kapoor Khan's review on 'Rangoon'

    20th February 2017

    Producer Sajid Nadiadwala along with wife Warda Nadiadwala held a special preview of 'Rangoon' for Kareena Kapoor Khan, last night at a suburban preview theatre in Mumbai. The screening proves to be one of the first previews of the film. 

    It is an unusual sight to spot Bebo at film screenings, however, the actress made an exception and caught the first screening of husband Saif Ali Khan's Rangoon.

    Kareena said though she does not usually attend film screenings, she came for this one for producer Sajid Nadiadwala, Bhardwaj and her husband, for whom she is very excited.

    Kareena said, "His (Saif's) character in the film is going to be very striking because for the first time he will be seen in a role like this. We are very excited. This film is special because it is by Sajid Nadiadwala. Karishma did Judwaa with him and I did 'Kambakht Ishq'. I normally don't go for trailers and Saif was surprised too. But I had to go because of Vishal, Sajid and Saif."

    The actress had been intrigued ever since the trailer of Rangoon was released.

    In an interaction before entering the screening, Kareena said, "I am expecting it to be one of the films of the year because it is directed by one of my favourite directors Vishal Bhardwaj, who has also made Omkara. I think that people are also expecting that because Saif was so good in that film as 'Langda Tyagi', which is one of his iconic roles"

    "People will find Saif's character of Rustom Rusi Billimoria to be very striking as it is for the first time he’s playing a Parsi and a film producer himself. The negative characters in Vishal’s films are always very striking. However, there are three stellar actors in this film, Kangana, Shahid and Saif. I like the competition and there should be one too, because then only they will all give their best. I expect nothing less from them. They are the best performers in the industry," she added right before entering the screening.

    "I expect nothing less from them. They are the best performers in the industry today, all three."

    Rangoon is a Casablanca-like love story set against the backdrop of Second World War, featuring feisty Julia aka Kangana, filmmaker Rusi aka Saif and soldier Nawab aka Shahid.

    'Rangoon' directed by Vishal Bhardwaj and produced by Sajid Nadiadwala under the banners of Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment and Viacom 18 Motion Pictures is all set to hit the theaters on February 24, 2017.
