After being in the oblivion for almost an entire 2012, the year which saw the arrival of a delayed TEZZ, Kangana Ranaut would be much more visible this year. While she could well be in the verge of half a dozen releases in months to follow, pretty soon she would be enjoying a double bill, what with two of her films arriving in back to back weeks.

‘That’s true,’ confirms our source, ‘She would be first seen in I LOVE NY on 26th April. This would be followed by SHOOTOUT AT WADALA which comes less than a week later on 1st May.’
Incidentally she has altogether different parts to play in both the films. While former is set in USA and is a musical romcom, latter is a gritty dramatic affair which is set in Mumbai.
CHECK OUT: No romance for Sunny Deol!
‘Kangana has a lot riding on both these films,’ a trade insider adds, ‘Post the debacle of RASCALS, she was seen in MILEY NAA MILEY HUM which came and went. After that it was a long break for her. She has made her displeasure clear around being cornered in the industry, as a result of which a long break ensued. It was indeed a big deal for her when she stepped into SHOOTOUT AT WADALA. She is the only leading lady in this all men drama. On the other hand she has Sunny Deol for company in I LOVE NEW YEAR which is centered entirely on the couple.’
For the young woman who was riding high on the success of TANU WEDS MANU till just a couple of years back, it could well be about time for Kangana to get back into the reckoning with her double bill this season.
