Mumbai, Oct 29 (IANS) After giving an understated performance as the archetypal fallen woman in 'Laaga Chunari Mein Daag', Rani rises straight for heaven in director Kunal Kohli's next film.She plays an angel descending on earth with a rather sweet and heart-warming mission.
The talented actress apparently took her angel's role very seriously, even going as far as to abstain from her favourite fish dishes to feel the pure and positive energy of an angel. The still-untitled film is being produced by Yash Raj Films.
'It's not easy playing an angel. It's a character absolutely without a reference point. Rani has gone into her inner resources to create the character,' a Yash Raj source told IANS.
Contrary to reports, she doesn't wear just one costume throughout the film, which will be completed in February and not in December as reported in the press.
While Amitabh Bachchan plays god, ghost and djinn in 'God Tussi Great Ho', 'Bhootnath' and 'Alladin' respectively, Esha Deol has already played a ghost in 'Bhoot'.
But no one has played an angel in Hindi movies before unless we count 'Aftab Shivdasani' who says his role as the angel in Anupam Sinha's 'Shukriya' was his best ever.
