"I feel fortunate to be working with great actors like them. I liked Saif as ‘Langda Tyagi’ in 'Omkara' and Shahid was incredible in 'Haider'. They (Bhardwaj and Saif and Vishal and Shahid) have great tuning and they had same energy for this film ‘Rangoon’," Kangana said.
Praising Bhardwaj the 29-year-old actress says that the filmmaker has the courage to deal with subjects which no one will ever think of bringing on-screen.
"He has courage to take on subjects which are different like 'Rangoon' is a love story in the backdrop of world war II. It is a very courageous move and not many filmmakers will resent a love story in rugged and rustic backdrop of war."

"I feel this character has landed in my lap because I signify that part (fearless) in today'scontemporary actresses that we have today."
