Vishal Bhardwaj clears the air about Rangoon and Hrithik-Kangana controversy


Bollywood film Rangoon drew immense expectations from the actress Kangana Ranaut. Also starring Saif Ali Khan and Shahid Kapoor, the film which was directed by Vishal Bhardwaj was hurled with many controversies. It was also reported that Kangana Ranaut had differences with her co stars Shahid Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan. Rumours were rife about Vishal Bhardwaj too having tiff with Kangana Ranaut.

During a book launch event, Vishal Bhardwaj cleared the rumours about Rangoon and also spoke about Kangana-Hrithik feud. Bhardwaj supported Kangana by stating, “Kangana is a very professional girl. And, maybe this is the right time to talk about it. When their (Kangana and Hrithik) personal conflict was going on, if it was any other actor, they would have stopped shooting for the film in the middle stating that they need to fix their mental state (Kangana was shooting for Vishal’s film Rangoon). Whereas Kangana was strong, even when the media was writing something or the other controversial about her every day and night. She would come for the shoot and once she was in front of the camera, she was totally into the character she was playing. After that what she used to do, I don’t know because we all were also busy with the film. But I know for a fact that it was a tough time for her. She was absolutely professional, and not even one day has she asked to stop the shooting for the film. We were shooting in the interiors of the country. So, we were totally cut off from the world, and would read the news on our phones only.”
