Vishal discussed Rangoon with Saif ten years back


Saif Ali Khan in Rangoon

Now this indeed is a scoop. Do you know filmmaker Vishal Bhardwaj had discussed the idea of Rangoon with one of its lead actors, Saif Ali Khan ten years back? Yes, it is true. Saif was one of the first persons with whom the filmmaker had early discussions regarding the concept and script of Rangoon. Ten years later, Saif plays an important role in the film, also starring Kangana Ranaut and Shahid Kapur.

Both Saif and Vishal are known Shakespeare lovers and have similar tastes in cinema too. The discussion was an informal one between them on the sets of Omkara. After reworking the script, Vishal met Saif again and narrated the script to him. The actor endorsed the script, and the duo is back together after Omkara.
