Kangana Ranaut as Abhishek Bachchan’s wife

Glamorous Kangana Ranaut has grabbed another fruity project. She will be playing Abhishek Bachchan’s better half in Ram Gopal Varma’s ‘Department’.  

Talking about the project, an elated Varma said, “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.”

Apart from Kangna and Abhishek, the film will also have Sanjay Dutt and Amitabh Bachchan. Kangna is the only female lead in the film.

“It is very much a guys’ film, with only one major female character. 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,” added Varma.
