After lying low for over a year, Kangana Ranaut would be suddenly a lot active. So much so that she would now be enjoying a double bill, what with two of her films releasing in back to back weeks. These are I Love New York and Shootout At Wadala.
“Her fortunes were at an all time high after Tanu Weds Manu. However post that, except for Double Dhamaal which was largely a male dominated affair, she couldn’t enjoy as many cheers. Game and Miley Na Miley Hum were flops but it was the debacle of Rascals that hurt her the most. Last year she was seen in only one film, Tezz, where she had a blink and you would miss role. The fact that it too failed commercially was a further downer,” says a source.
She decided to take a mini break of sorts and gave her entire career strategy a rethink. This is when films like Shootout at Wadala, Krrish 3 and Ungli came into picture.
“Even though Shootout At Wadala is a male dominated film, she knew that it was a massive project to be a part of. Ditto for Krrish 3. As for Ungli, no one thinks twice when Karan Johar gives a call,” the source adds.
In the meantime though, a much delayed film of hers, I Love New York, is finally being readied for release.
“Fortunately for Kangana, not many are aware that she had started work on this film with Sunny Deol. Since not even a glimpse of it has been revealed so far, it is expected to come across as a fresh film. However its release would be just a week before Shootout at Wadala which has been confirmed for 1st May quite some time back,” an insider comments.
Not that Kangana would be complaining after being MIA for so long!
