This is the first time Kangana has worked with Vishal Bhardwaj, who has directed Shahid in two films - Kaminey (2009) and Haider (2014) - and Saif in 2006 film Omkara.
In Rangoon, Kangana plays the role of an actress cum entertainer whom Saif (her boyfriend and a filmmaker) sends to another country for a gig. Kangana's security is entrusted with Shaihd Kapoor, who plays a soldier. Set against the backdrop of World War II, Rangoon maps the romantic journey of these three characters.

Earlier, gossip mills were abuzz with news of Shahid and Kangana not getting along on the sets of the period romance drama film, though, they both have time and again denied all such rumours, reports PTI. She also reportedly drove everybody on the sets of Rangoon to the edge with her tantrums, but in an earlier interview to mid-day, Kangana said: "He (Vishal Bhardwaj) told me just this one thing, 'Ignore those people who are talking negative things about you. Shoot them down with your performance.' That gave me a lot of confidence. These negative things said about me are working like a blessing in disguise. Rangoon started like any other film, but there are so many negative things being said about it that it is only bringing all of us together."
