The trailer for Kangana Ranaut’s ‘Simran’ proves she’s still Queen of Bollywood

‘Queen of Bollywood’ Kangana Ranaut is back and this time she isn’t fighting nepotism or going on her honeymoon alone; her fatale flaw is that she’s a kleptomaniac and is addicted to gambling. Playing the role of the eponymous Simran, the trailer is out and it promises exactly everything that we expect from this fiery actress.

A kleptomaniac divorcee who is addicted to gambling, Simran is a triangle in a world of squares. She is everything you want to be, but are afraid to be, and that is what makes her perfect in her own small world. Starring Ranaut in her ever-popular Queen inspired avatar, Simran is possibly the breath of fresh air Bollywood’s failing status needed.

Going by the looks of the trailer, Simran promises a fun adventure with possibly one costume change too many for the better! The diva who chooses to wear wigs and disguises than skullcaps to rob places gives us that modern-day Thelma & Louise vibe, but all done with Ranaut’s natural charisma! Playing the lead of the film again, with absolutely no need of a prominent male lead, there isn’t a doubt that Simran would be a sight for sore eyes this coming month.

Directed by Hansal Mehta – whose Shahid bagged him a National Award for direction – the film is set to release on September 15th. If you still haven’t seen the quirky trailer, check it out here:
