Actress Kangana Ranaut is pleased at bagging plum assignments, including Woh Lamhe, a take on the relationship between Mahesh Bhatt and the late Parveen Babi.
"I used to admire Parveen Babi for her beauty, her talent and the fact that she was so lovable. She was a dignified woman and I have the highest regard for her. It was very heartbreaking to hear the taped conservation (between Bhatt and Parveen), which made me realise that she was very helpless and depressed," says the actress whose performance in Gangster garnered her a lot of acclaim.
The actress was shooting for Gangster in South Korea when Mukesh Bhatt offered her the role."I feel very honoured and privileged that I was chosen for this role. Playing Sana was difficult but I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was very different from the character of Simran that I played in Gangster. My director Mohit Suri made it much easier for me since he knew what he wanted. Bhatt Saab, Mohit and I used to discuss the screenplay and I think I've done a decent job," said Kangana. The film is slated to bereleased onSeptember 29.
