Actress Kangana Ranaut has gone to the US where she is preparing for her role in forthcoming film Simran. In Hansal Mehta’s directorial venture Simran, Kangana Ranaut will play a Gujarati NRI named Praful Patel.
“She (Kangana) is doing her recce and workshop session with Hansal Mental and team for ‘Simran’. She is in Atlanta right now meeting hotel staff to get the nuances correct,” sources said.
The Queen actress had left for the US on August 24 and she will back in Mumbai on September 1. Simran is the story of a girl, her ambitions and how she gets addicted to the world of crime.
According to sources, the shooting for the film is expected to commence from September end. The name Simran however has dominantly taken the face of Kajol, whose character was named so in her famous film alongside Shah Rukh Khan in Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge.
However, Kangana has been one of the actresses in Bollywood whose box-office scorecard has not depended on the the male lead of her films, and her versatility has won her fans like megastar Amitabh Bachchan and superstar Aamir Khan. Now she is likely to star with Shah Rukh Khan, but she says the project is at a very premature stage.
Rumours have been rife that Shah Rukh and Kangana are going to work in a Sanjay Leela Bhansali film.
Asked about it, Kangana told IANS: “Sanjay sir just spoke to me about the film, saying that he wants to make it with me and Shah Rukh sir. But it’s at a very premature stage. It’s not that I am working with Shah Rukh sir tomorrow or something like that… So, yeah, like I said, it’s at a very premature stage.”
