Shahid Kapoor stars as one-third of a love triangle in director Vishal Bhardwaj's new film Rangoon, opening this Friday. The setting of Rangoon is World War II-era Burma and the plot follows three characters whose lives intertwine romantically - Shahid plays Nawab Malik, a soldier who falls for Kangana Ranaut's character Miss Julia, a spunky actress who is already involved with her rather shady producer Rustom Billimoria, played by Saif Ali Khan.
Shahid Kapoor and Vishal Bhardwaj will be collaborating for the third time - Mr Bhardwaj previously directed Shahid in Kaminey and the acclaimed Haider, an adaptation of Shakespeare's Hamlet set in Kashmir.
Shahid Kapoor, last seen in Udta Punjab as a drug-addicted rockstar, is currently filming director Sanjay Leela Bhansali's period film Padmavati, in which he plays Rani Padmini's husband Ratan Singh.
