If the grapevine is to be believed then Shahid Kapoor is all set to deliver another applaud worthy performance in his upcoming film Rangoon and might even end up sweeping awards for his role.
Buzz is that the few who have watched the flick, say that Shahid's look has a striking resemblance to Leonardo DiCaprio's look from his Academy Award winning film, The Revenant.
Ironically, Shahid's look from the period drama in certain scenes also bears an uncanny resemblance to Leonardo Di Caprio's look from the multi-Oscar nominated film.
In both the pictures, Shahid and Leo are both seen bruised and covered in mud with the backdrop of the heavy forest.
Talking about it, a source was quoted saying, "The few who have watched Rangoon claim this to be Shahid Kapoor's finest . While Vishal has kept most of Shahid's character in the film under wraps , he is a surprise package in the film and will completely floor audiences with his performance. A lot of people have also been drawing comparisons to Shahid's scenes and those of Leonardo Di caprio's from The Revenant, namely the portions that have been shot in the forest and during the battle scenes".
Well, we just can't wait to watch yet another power-packed performance by Shahid! Meanwhile, do let us know if you guys feel that Leo was Shahid's inspiration for Rangoon.
