Exclusive! Sonakshi Sinha-Saif Ali Khan in Anurag Basu’s next, Full SCOOP inside!
Anurag Basu’s forthcoming film is about four inter-connected stories based in a metropolitan city. As many as seven prominent actors are playing the characters.
After Hrs was the first to tell you that Kareena Kapoor Khan was the original choice for the female lead. But a source tells us, “Bebo has already signed Karan Johar’s Good News, which rolls around the same time, so she had to decline Anurag’s offer. Then, Kangana Ranaut was approached for the same. She decided to do his i instead with Rajkummar Rao and told her mentor-director that she won’t be able to do this movie.”
Now, the makers have finally zeroed in on Sonakshi Sinha. The source adds, “She was given a narration and offered the role two weeks ago. The Dabangg actress has signed on the dotted line.” This will be the second time that Sona and Saif will share screen space after Bullett Raja (2013). “They aren’t paired opposite each other but will have some scenes together,” informs the khabri.
