The release date of Vishal Bhardwaj's 'Rangoon' has now been pushed forward to next year. The period drama set in the era of the 1940's amidst the turmoil of India's war for independence will hit the silver screens on 24th February 2017 since the makers are keen that no stone should be left unturned to make this film a benchmark and they want the best VFX technicians from around the world to work on it.
A leading tabloid quoted the director as saying, "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 ever. When we suggested Feb 24th as the release date - Kangana was very excited as she is sentimentally attached to February given the exceptional response to Tanu weds Manu which had released in the same period and was also produced by Viacom18 Motion Pictures. Given that it's Shahid's birthday on 25th February, there is no better way to celebrate." He further added, "For Saif and me, Rangoon has been even more special since it's been ten years since Omkara and an interesting experience working together again after a full decade."
'Rangoon' stars Shahid Kapoor, Saif Ali Khan and Kangana Ranaut.
