‘Simran’ teaser sees Kangana Ranaut in ‘Queen’ mode

Kangana Ranaut is playing yet another oddball in the upcoming Hansal Mehta movie.

The teaser of the new Kangana Ranaut movie Simran showcases the actress’s quicksilver persona. Praful looks like the Gujarati cousin of Rani from Ranaut’s biggest hit Queen (2013) as she shakes a leg like nobody is watching and sports blonde and fiery red wigs.

The teaser gives nothing away of the plot of Hansal Mehta’s film, which will be released on September 15.

Simran is loosely based on the life and times of Sandeep Kaur, an American nurse who was convicted of robbing four banks. Sandeep Kaur was nicknamed the Bombshell Bandit, according to a fabulous BBC profile.

Simran is Ranaut’s first release of the year after the box office disaster Rangoon. It was recently in the news after its writer and editor fell out with the director. Apurva Asrani, who has collaborated on the writing and editing of five of Hansal Mehta’s films, including Shahid (2012) and Aligarh (2016), objected to the fact that Ranaut got an associate writing credit for Simran, which he said had been given without consulting him.

Asrani was fired as the movie’s editor the day after his interview to the Mumbai Mirror tabloid. Another story hinted that Ranaut had taken Asrani’s serious-minded screenplay for Simran and turned into the entertainer it needed to be. On the basis of the first trailer, the movie looks like Queen in suburban America, but perhaps like Praful, it will be full of surprises.

A phone so stunning that it deserves its own photoshoot

Presenting the Moto X4, crafted to perfection.

The light reveals the fluidity of its body; curves that fit perfectly in the contours of a palm.

Reclining on a bed of satin, the glass-encased phone blends into the folds of the luxurious fabric.

The slimness, seamlessness and solidity of the phone make for a great profile shot.

A stunning design which is IP68 rated water-resistant too, it is as beautiful as it is strong.

We partnered with photographer Gaurav Sawn to create this series. Says Gaurav, “The glass sandwich design looks extremely good and the reflections on the back panel make the phone stand out. This is a phone that is best used without a case. The curved corners were also very comfortable to hold. All in all, really enjoyed shooting this phone!”

While this phone is elegant and crafted to perfection, it is also extremely tough, being protected from scratches with Corning® Gorilla® Glass that stretches all the way around.

You don’t need to sacrifice of performance either. It’s packed with a 2.2 GHz octa-core Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 630 processor and comes with a TurboPower™ Charger which means hours of power in minutes!

For the music lover, this phone is a boon. With simultaneous connectivity of up to four Bluetooth® audio devices at the same time, you can build your own stereo system without worrying about cables.

The dual rear cameras – a 12MP that lets you focus faster and get great results even on dark, cloudy days, and an 8 MP camera, with wide angle lens makes your most ambitious photos look all the more impressive.
