Kangna Ranaut to play a Gangster in an upcoming film

Kangna Ranaut, who is known to experiment with her roles is ready to live up to it again. The actress will now be seen as a gangster in Sai Kabir’s upcoming film that revolves around a female outlaw.

Produced by Tigmanshu Dhulia and Rahul Mittra, the film is all set to go on floors soon.

Says a source,

Kangna was recently signed for the film. She will be seen as a gun-toting character in the revenge drama. The film, set in the hinterlands, will have her essay the title role. Considering that she has done the dark ‘n’ dreary to comedy to chic roles, she feels this will showcase her in new light.

Like Dhulia’s Irrfan-starrer Paan Singh Tomar, this flick will be shot in Madhya Pradesh. Earlier there were news that Tabu will play the same role but Kangna got the chance instead.

The film’s writer-director Sai Kabir had penned the dialogues in the Sanjay Dutt-starrer Lamhaa and the screenplay for the Shahid Kapoor-Vidya Balan film Kismet Konnection.

He was slated to make his debut as director with Chemistry, a film produced by Shreyas Talpade featuring the actor along with Tanishaa and Soha Ali Khan. The film though shot in Paris has yet to see light of day.
