After having shared the screen space in 2013 Bullet Raja, handsome hunk Saif Ali Khan and gorgeous Sonakshi Sinha are all set to come back onscreen with Anurag Basu’s upcoming film. It is learned that the hit filmmaker’s next film is about four inter-connected stories based in a metropolitan city and Saif and Sonakshi are going to be part of it
According to the reports in DNA After Hrs, it is learned that instead of Sonakshi, Nawaab Saif’s wife Kareena Kapoor Khan was supposed to play the lead role but things didn’t work out. “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 zeroed in on Sonakshi Sinha. While the two actors will be the part of the movie, they are not paired opposite each other. It is learned that Saif and Sonakshi will be part of different stories and will have only a few scenes together. The source reveals to the daily, “She(Sonakshi Sinha) was given a narration and offered the role two weeks ago. The Dabangg actress has signed on the dotted line. They aren’t paired opposite each other but will have some scenes together.”
Director Anurag Basu has roped in all the prominent stars of the industry in his forthcoming film which is rumoured to be the sequel of 2007 film Life In A Metro. The other actors who have been locked for the film are Abhishek Bachchan, Taapsee Pannu and Rajkummar Rao. “Raj was the first to say yes to it. Soon afterwards, Abhishek also joined in and Taapsee gave her nod, too. If Sidharth Malhotra says yes, he will be paired opposite her,” avers the informer. It is also being said that Dhadak star Ishaan Khatter is also in talks to be a part of the film.
Another source reveals to DNA, “Anurag is working on two scripts and discussions are on to make it into different films with a distinct cast. Both parts will be shot back-to-back,” says the informer. Well, it really looks like an interesting star cast and has definitely peaked our interests.
