Move over Dons and Bullett Rajas of Bollywood. Give a round of applause to our very own 'Queen' Kangana, who's turned Revolver Rani to kill, fight and gyrate in style. The movie's latest track aptly describes protagonist Alka's 'janglee jawaani' and her propensity to go 'dhaain, dhaain' at the drop of a hat.
Sample the lyrics: Zahreelee tarannum ka hissa hai, ye shahar e jahannum ka kissa hai. Yahaan bandooke paas bhasha hai, mohabbat ka khooni tamasha ha.
The number instantly connects with you. Not only the lyrics (by Puneet Sharma and Shaheen Iqbal), but Sanjeev Srivastava's music and Usha Uthup's voice make the song catchy.
Revolver Rani is a satirical and unusual love story set against the backdrop of politics. It’s about Alka Singh (Kangana Ranaut), the leader of a political party, and her obsessive love for Rohan Mehra (Vir Das), a rising star of Bollywood.
Directed by Sai Kabir Shrivastav, the film also stars Piyush Mishra and Zakhir Hussain.
Apparently, Kangana was travelling with her costume designer Gavin and they shopped at 'kinky' stores in Europe to get the look right.
“Kangana’s character is crazy about clothes from Europe. She is also a bindaas and cool woman in the movie. We wanted to create a look that was a ­little futuristic and quirky, and at the same time ­realistic. Kangana also had a strong idea of her ­character and her look. That really helped me a lot. After checking out those stores, we got excited and decided on inventing our own personal style,” says Gavin.
The whackiest were the outfits she wore for a ­particular bedroom scene where she is showing off to Vir Das that her clothes come from Europe. Seen wearing a metallic bra, this outfit has been making news ever since the promo went out.
“When she saw the outfit, she loved it, but was a little skeptical if it would be comfortable. So she wore it a few times to get ­comfortable, but when the camera rolled, she was totally in control. Kangana has the poise and attitude to carry it off,” says Gavin.
