The Hindi remake of Tamil hit Jigarthanda is finally happening five years after the original wowed the audience and critics alike with its gritty and intriguing plotline and impeccable performance of its lead cast.

According to industry sources, Rajkummar Rao and Saif Ali Khan are likely to star in the lead in this commercial potboiler. While Rajkummar is almost finalized, Saif is believed to be still in talks with the makers. “Jigarthanda is a two-hero project. It revolves around a young aspiring filmmaker who decides to make a gangster film and follows a real-life gangster in search of a solid story. Siddharth and Bobby Simha made both characters memorable with their exceptional performances with the later even bagging a National Film Awards for Best Supporting Actor. Now in the Hindi remake, Rajkummar will be playing Siddharth’s character while Saif, if he comes on board, will be seen playing a notorious gangster for the very first time,” our sources informed us.

Saif Ali Khan plays a wealthy Parsi filmmaker in Vishal Vishal Bhardwaj’s Rangoon, which also stars Shahid and Kangana and released in theatres on Friday, February 24.

Vishal Bhardwaj’s Rangoon, starring Shahid Kapoor, Kangana Ranaut and Saif Ali Khan, released on Friday, February 24, and has received a mixed response from the audience. People are lauding the fine performances by the cast.

Saif has delivered a stupendous performance as Rusi Billimoria – a wealthy Parsi filmmaker – who leads a royal lifestyle and believes that British rule is the best for India’s growth. Although he is suave and romantic, his actions are also rough and violent.

This is Saif’s second outing with Bhardwaj, with whom he earlier worked in Omkara, an adaptation of Shakespeare’s Othello. If you have watched Omkara – the brilliant masterpiece – you will surely agree that Saif had delivered his best performance in his then career span of 13 years. Although the actor didn’t play the lead character, he had a prominent role and broke the impression of being an average actor. In Rangoon too, the charming Nawab of Pataudi leaves everyone in awe with his remarkable and hard-hitting acting chops.

Director Vishal Bhardwaj’s Casablanca-like love story, Rangoon, promises its viewers a ride to the British-ruled India, at the brink of the Second World War. The film was a journey for its artistes and crew members who toiled to recreate the era with costumes, dialogue and picturesque locations.

Shahid Kapoor in a soldier’s uniform, Kangana Ranaut in her vintage dresses and Saif Ali Khan in his fitted pants and suits bore the brunt of what they felt was the toughest schedule of their lives.Rangoon was shot in Arunachal Pradesh whose weather never fails to surprise.The artistes were greeted with torrential rain, followed by a drop in temperature and ice-cold breeze. If the state offered great landscape, it lacked network, civilisation in most pockets and toilets. It was also difficult to travel from one point to another. Vishal reasons, “I like to keep my cinema as realistic as possible.We had to depict the Rangoon border of that era. The raw, unchartered terrains of Arunachal Pradesh were the closest we could get.“

Kangana learnt to juggle knives and ride a horse for a 30 second shot. She plays the fiery actress, Miss Julia.While playing the nation’s heartthrob, Kangana was reminded of herself when she’d debuted in the movies.She says, “Rangoon has a Broadway-like treatment.
