Mumbai: Actress Kangana Ranaut says she is fortunate to share screen space with her ‘Rangoon’ co-stars Shahid Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan.

"They are incredible actors. They are amazing with Vishal Bhardwaj sir (director) and he has given them wonderful characters in the films that he did with them. They are very special, very natural and spontaneous,” Kangana avers.

‘Rangoon’ a love story set against the backdrop of World War II and brings together the three actors on-screen for the first time.

"I feel fortunate to be working with great actors like them. I liked Saif as Langda Tyagi in 'Omkara' and Shahid was incredible in 'Haider'. They (Bhardwaj and Saif and Vishal and Shahid) have great tuning and they had same energy for this film,” the actress adds.

Praising Bhardwaj the 29-year-old actress says that the filmmaker has the courage to deal with subjects which no one will ever think of bringing on-screen.

In the movie the ‘Queen’ actress portrays the life and times of Mary Ann Evans aka Fearless Nadia, Bollywood's first original stunt-woman still remembered for her fiery role in the movie ‘Hunterwali’.

"She (Fearless Nadia) is a stunt woman and it's an amalgamation of many characters in the film. I am known to speak my mind and to say things that I stand for is right. That sort of conviction and identity was important for the role,” she said.

"I feel this character has landed in my lap because I signify that part (fearless) in today's contemporary actresses that we have today,” Kangana says.

Produced by Sajid Nadiadwala and Viacom 18 Motion Pictures the film is scheduled for release on February 24.
