New Delhi: Actress Kangana Ranaut, whose character in the forthcoming film "Rangoon" is said to be loosely based on actress-stunt woman Fearless Nadia, says her role is not based on any real-life person.

A lawsuit was filed against "Rangoon" maker Vishal Bhardwaj on grounds of copyright infringement, by Wadia Movietone Pvt Ltd, which has claimed that Kangana's character Miss Julia is based on real-life Australian stunt actor Mary Evans, popularly known as Fearless Nadia.

Asked about it, Kangana told IANS here: "I think there is some legal hassle around that. First of all, we cannot comment on a matter when it's already in the court, but we can assure you that it's not based on any living or dead person."

The 29-year-old actress added that "Rangoon" is "completely a fictional story" and the "characters are fictional as well".

"Rangoon", also starring Saif Ali Khan and Shahid Kapoor, will release on Friday. It is set during World War II.
