Mumbai: Kangna Ranaut is all set to get into gangster mode. The actress has been pencilled in for debutant Sai Kabir’s upcoming flick that revolves around a female outlaw. The project is being produced by Tigmanshu Dhulia and Rahul Mittra who earlier made Sahib Biwi aur Gangster together.
Says a source, “Kangna was recently signed for the film. She will be seen as a gun-toting character in the revenge drama. The film, set in the hinterlands, will have her essay the title role. Considering that she has done the dark ‘n’ dreary to comedy to chic roles, she feels this will showcase her in new light.”
Like Dhulia’s Irrfan-starrer Paan Singh Tomar, this gangster flick will also be shot in Madhya Pradesh. Interestingly this is the same project for which there was earlier buzz that Tabu was to essay the pivotal role. But it seems that they opted for Kangs instead.
The film’s writer-director Sai Kabir had penned the dialogues in the Sanjay Dutt-starrer Lamhaa and the screenplay for the Shahid Kapoor-Vidya Balan film Kismet Konnection. He was slated to make his debut as director with Chemistry, a film produced by Shreyas Talpade featuring the actor along with Tanishaa and Soha Ali Khan. The film though shot in Paris has yet to see light of day.
