First Look: Kangana Ranaut in, But Not as, Simran

New Delhi: Actress Kangana Ranaut is diversifying her resume - after having played a supermodel in Fashion, a middle-class Punjabi in Queen, a modern young woman in Katti Batti and the headstrong Tanu from Kanpur, here she is as NRI Gujarati Praful Patel in the first look of director Hansal Mehta's Simran.

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted this on Thursday.

But who is Simran? We don't have the answer yet but the film is reportedly based on the true crime story of an NRI who robbed banks to pay off gambling debts.

Simran is scheduled to begin shooting in USA in August.

Kangana Ranaut, 29, was last seen in Tanu Weds Manu Returns, for which she won the Best Actress National Award this year. This was her third National Award win - she won Best Actress for 2014's Queen and the Best Supporting Actress prize for 2008 film Fashion.

Kangana's upcoming projects include Vishal Bhardwaj's Rangoon, co-starring Shahid Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan. She will also play the titular role in Ketan Mehta's Rani Lakshmibai.
