Turbaned no more: Shahid Kapoor abandons pagdi in Rangoon

It is a case of too many too soon. With a whole lot of our Bollywood stars playing Sikhs in recent films, and some more coming up-Vicky Kaushal in Zubaan and Tiger Shroff in The Flying Jatt - Shahid Kapoor will no more be playing a turbaned Sikh in Vishal Bhardwaj's Rangoon.

According to sources close to the project, that was the original plan. "Shahid has never played a Sardarji before. And it was felt he would look dapper in a turban. But then, a whole lot of stars like Ajay Devgn, Akshay Kumar appeared on screen as a Sardarji. So, Vishal Bhardwaj dropped the idea of casting Shahid as a Sardarji."

The actor's role has now been altered. Apparently, Shahid Kapoor now plays a Muslim character, as it was important to cast him in a culture-specific part as the film, according to a source in the know, is a love triangle among three people from three different backgrounds.
