Known best for his movies like ‘Haider’ and ‘Udta Punjab’, Bollywood actor Shahid Kapoor will soon be hitting the silver screen with Vishal Bhardwaj’s’ ‘Rangoon’. 

    It is said that his role inthe movie is inspired by actor Leonardo Di Caprio’s film in ‘The Revenant’, owing to the uncanny resemblance in his looks with Di Caprio’s. The movie later went on to get DiCaprio an Oscar.

Says a source, “The few who have watched ‘Rangoon’ claim this to be Shahid Kapoor’s finest. While Vishal has kept most of Shahid’s character in the film under wraps, he is a surprise package in the film and will completely floor the audience with his performance.

A lot of people have also been drawing comparisons to Shahid’s scenes and those of Leonardo DiCaprio’s from ‘The Revenant’, namely the portions that have been shot in the forest and during the battle scenes.”

Produced by Sajid Nadiadwala the movie is a period drama set during World War II, featuring Kangana Ranaut, Shahid Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan in lead roles. ‘Rangoon’ is scheduled  to release on February 24.
