Vishal Bhardwaj’s Rangoon starring Kangana Ranaut, Shahid Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan is somehow not making tremendous progress at the box office. The film had a below average opening and collected around Rs 6 crore on both Friday and Saturday, and remained stagnant even on day three. It earned Rs 6.15 crore on Sunday. Rangoon currently stands at Rs. 18.25 crore in domestic profits. Such low numbers are not good enough for a film which has some of Bollywood’s biggest names.
Rangoon is a period film set against the backdrop of World War II. Various actors of Bollywood, like Kareena Kapoor Khan, Randeep Hooda, Aanand L Rai, Rajkummar Rao, had appreciated the film when they were invited for the special screenings. However it seems, no one is interested in watching the fresh pair, Kangana Ranaut and Shahid Kapoor’s romance on screen.
Even the trailers, promotional videos and songs of Rangoon seemed promising when they were released by the team. Apart from Shahid, Kangana was also spotted romancing with Saif Ali Khan for the first time in her career. Despite all kind of fresh factors, the film could not climb very high.

Rangoon marked the return of Nawab Saif Ali in the industry after quite a long gap, all this while the film star had only been on the news when his kids were up to something. The actor recently had Taimur with Kareena Kapoor, before that when his daughter Sarah Ali Khan graduated from Columbia Universtiy and got an offer in Karan Johar’s film Student Of The Year part 2, this factor only brought in a little publicity to the actor.
