Rangoon is a story of love and deceit set in the times of World War II. Kangana stars as Miss Julia, an actress and entertainer sent for a show to war-torn Burma by her lover and producer Rustom Billimoria, played by Saif Ali Khan. Shahid Kapoor plays Nawab Malik, a soldier entrusted with Miss Julia's safety. Miss Julia and Nawab Malik are off to a rocky start but they fall in love eventually and Rustom obviously doesn't like it.
Rangoon also stars Richard McCabe and Satoru Kawaguchi.
