It has been confirmed that Kangna Ranaut will play the role of Abhishek Bachchan’s wife in Ram Gopal Verma’s next movie Department. RGV met her on Monday and was impressed with her as he finalised her role then and there.
When the mercurial director was asked about his choice, he responded, “I wondered why we haven’t worked together as yet! Kangna very much fits into my vision as a filmmaker. She is intense and emotional on screen. I’ve wanted to work with her, from the time she appeared in Gangster and Woh Lamhe. But I didn’t want to cast her in anything insignificant. The role had to justify her presence.”
The other actors who will be featuring in this movie are Abhishek Bachchan and Sanjay Dutt as Kangna is the only female lead in the movie. According to RGV, it is basically a guy’s movie with only one major female character.
When prodded further about the plot of the movie, RGV conceded and said, “The story is about three cops and the extra-constitutional activities they engage in to maintain a civil society. Kangna is the only person in the world that Abhishek’s character can share his agony with. She plays a very intense role in this dark, gritty and real drama.”
