The makers of Rangoon recently launched the trailer from the film along with three posters. The posters showcase the three main characters in the film portrayed by Kangana, Shahid Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan in different moods.
The film is essentially a period drama which is set in the 1940s. This is the time when India was fighting the war of Independence to get freedom from the Colonial rulers.
There was a buzz that the film is a biopic, but the director had made it clear that it is not so. It is purely a work of fiction. But Bhardwaj has set the record straight saying that the movie doesn’t follow the life of any of the various actresses of the era.
Rangoon is a love triangle where Kangana Ranaut plays the role of Julia, a seductress and Saif Ali Khan who plays a filmmaker in love with her. Shahid Kapoor will be seen playing the role of a soldier named Nawab Malik who falls in love with Julia during a train journey.
Bollywood actors Shahid Kapoor and Deepika Padukone are busy shooting in full flow for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s upcoming ‘Padmavati’. The duo is continuously doing night shifts and the shooting is going in full flow.

After shooting a song sequence, both Shahid and Deepika got a standing ovation from the entire crew along with director Sanjay Leela Bhansali.

The period drama stars Shahid Kapoor as Raja Ratan Singh Rawal of Chittor, Deepika as queen of Chittor, Rani Padmavati and Ranveer Singh as Alauddin Khilji.
With such a stellar cast, Padmavati is slated for release on 17th November 2017.

Shahid essays the role of Raja Ratan Singh Rawal of Chittor while Deepika Padukone plays his wife queen of Chittor, Rani Padmavati. The actor is continuously doing night shifts for the film.
To get into the character of the King, Shahid has been undergoing sword fighting and horse riding classes during the day while shooting during the night for the film. Source close to Shahid said that Shahid has hired a personal trainer who is busy training him in sword fighting as well as horse riding lessons. The actor wants to get everything right and bring more authenticity to his role.

The press conference of the upcoming Bollywood film Coffee with D took place recently in the presence of actor Sunil Grover. The standup comedian who has made a name with his portrayal of Dr. Mashoor Gulati in the popular show The Kapil Sharma Show interacted with the media and spoke at length about making his debut in Bollywood.
The film shows Sunil Grover as a controversial television journalist named Arnab Ghosh and Zakir Hussain as the infamous Dawood Ibrahim. The Bollywood film Coffee with D is a hilarious parody on the underworld Don’s life.
Speaking about his experience, he said “I am glad that people have given me so much love due to the portrayal of the different women characters. They are difficult. I do not know how women manage a sari. You know I have become so accustomed to doing such roles that I often used to check whether I had put on lipstick just before a shot was taken”.
The actor also revealed that the character that he plays in the film is loosely based on eminent journalist Arnab Goswami. He focused on the point that this has been done so as to help the audience in relating with the character shown on the screen. “Journalists do a tough job. They work day and night. Hats off to them for the hard work! I used to work in a news channel before I entered in this world of acting. So I am well aware of the way that they act. That helped a lot in enacting the character” said Sunil.
An Apex Entertainment production, Coffee with D is directed by Vishal Mishra and produced by Vinod Ramani. It is slated for release on 6th January.
