"From my first film till this one, I am playing a lover to don or gangster. It is quite a coincidence. I have not deliberately chosen these kinds of films. This film..script is very special, I liked it very much. So I wanted to be part of it," the PTI quoted the actress as saying.
In her debut film Gangster, Kangana Ranaut played gangster Shiney Ahuja's love interest. The film directed by Anurag Basu was rumoured to be based on the life of Abu Salem and former actress Monica Bedi. Thereafter in Milan Luthria's Once Upon A Time In Mumbai, based on the life history of an underworld don of the 1960s, Haji Mastan, played by Ajay Devgn, Kangana essayed the role of starlet Sona, with whom Mastan was in love.
"I don't think it really matters in how many films I have played gangster's girlfriend. But this film is different from what I have done earlier," she said.
Directed by Sanjay Gupta, Shootout at Wadala, revolves around the life of gangster Manya Surve and how he was shot dead, the first registered encounter by Mumbai police, in 1982 in Wadala. The film would release on December 7.
