Kangana Ranaut Plays A Madhubala Look-Alike In ‘Once Upon A Time In Mumbai’

If Prachi Desai has the look of Dimple Kapadia,  Kangana Ranaut will play the role of a girl who looks like Madhubala, the famous Bollywood timeless beauty.  She reveals that the character she plays is a girl named Rehana, on the lines of Sona, don Haji Mastan’s wife. The feared don  had a huge crush on Madhubala and had married a girl who looked like her.

“In real life Haji was a big fan of Madhubalaji and he fell in love with Sona who looked like her. So my character is a cross between the two,” Kangana says. “The character I am playing has some similarities with Madhubalaji… like the way she was a superstar and had problems in life.”

Talking about her character in the film, Kangana said: “Rehana is a very big star… she is the woman who evokes desire in everyone and then she falls in love with this gangster and discovers a new world. My character transforms from a star to a woman.” Kangana  had successfully reprised the role of Parveen Babi in the movie ‘Woh Lamhe’ and will now be doing a character inspired by Madhubala. “I observed 70s actresses like Zeenat Aman and Parveen Babi… they were the rebels who wore bikinis and were style icons. My character is somehow like them,” says Kangana.

Once Upon a Time in Mumbai is a gangster movie set in the 1970s and is directed by Milan Luthria.  The story  is about the rise of a Sultan(Ajay Devgn) and his fall from power while his protégé Shoaib (Emraan Hashmi) challenges his supremacy and takes over the rule of the underworld in Bombay. The film that releases on July 30 will have Prachi Desai opposite Emraan Hashmi.

But haven’t we seen Kangana taking way too many eccentric characters? She hasn’t done a single role that can be diva-like. Kangana doesn’t really care about this, as she says, “I really don’t care what people think of me and how they perceive me. That is okay with me because I don’t make an extra effort to be friendly to people. I do things I like doing. I’m a very moody person. There are times when I want to talk about my life whereas there are days I just want to be left alone.”I don’t put myself on Twitter to see how many people are crazy about me. I don’t like to blow kisses at my fans to show that I am a diva. This whole idea of diva doesn’t turn me on,” says Kangana, “However I do share a close personal relationship with my fans and close friends. I am happy that way.”
