Mumbai: After playing moll to reel life gangsters like Shiney Ahuja and Ajay Devgn, actress Kangana Ranaut is once again set to reprise the role in ‘Shootout At Wadala’, as gangster Manya Surve's girlfriend.

The 24-year-old actress portrays the role of Vidya Joshi, the love interest of Surve, essayed by John Abraham.

 "From my first film till this one, I am playing a lover to Don or gangster. It is quite a coincidence. I have not deliberately chosen these kinds of films. This film's script is very special, I liked it very much. So I wanted to be part of it," Kangana said after the first look of the upcoming film was launched.

 In her debut film "Gangster" Kangana played Shiney Ahuja's love interest. The film directed by Anurag Basu was rumored to be based on the life of Abu Salem and former actress Monica Bedi.

 In Milan Luthria's "Once Upon A Time In Mumbai", based on the life history of a underworld don of the 1960s, Haji Mastan, played by Ajay Devgn, Kangana essayed the role of starlet Sona, with whom Mastan was in love.

 "I don't think it really matters in how many films I have played gangster's girlfriend. But this film is different from what I have done earlier," she said.

Directed by Sanjay Gupta, "Shootout at Wadala", revolves around the life of gangster Manya Surve and how he was shot dead, the first registered encounter by Mumbai police, in 1982 in Wadala.

The film would release on December 7.
