Kangna Ranaut is Vishwas Patil’s Rajjo !
Winner of several prestigious awards including the Sahitya Akademi National Award,Priyadarshini National Award and Bhartiya Bhasha Parishad Award – Director Vishwas Patil while zeroing in on his leading lady who plays a nautch girl in the film, was looking for a powerhouse performer with a regal appeal on the lines of the iconic Madhubala.
Talking about his Rajjo ,says director Vishwas Patil, “There is no doubt that Kangna is a talent to reckon with ,however, what appealed to me more was that she has a strong Indianess to her that hasn’t been exploited in her roles so far….With Rajjo that is exactly what I aim to do….The film looks into the issue of the mujra houses that are dying a slow death in today’s competitive world of high rises and corruption”.
Says Kangna Ranaut “”When I heard the script of the film..I knew immediately I wanted to be part of it…people will identify with Rajjo’s character and empathize with her struggle”.”
Produced by Four Pillars Entertainment, Rajjo , is scheduled to release in the year 2013.
