Mumbai, Apr 2: Bollywood actor Sonakshi Sinha will play a gangster's moll in Ekta Kapoor's Once Upon A Time In Mumbain Again.
Sonakshi's character Yasmin is said to based on the life of 80's actress Mandakini of Raj Kapoor's film Ram Teri Ganga Maili.
Sonakshi has so far played the role of a village belle in Dabangg, Rowdy Rathore and Joker.
It will be her third film with Akshay Kumar,who plays Shoaib (modelled on underworld don Dawood Ibrahim).
Sona will be seen as Shoaib's (real life Dawood's) love interest.
Imran Khan will be seen as Aslam who is drawn into Shoaib's activities and utimately forms the third angle to the love triangle.
Sonakshi says, "While listening to a script,I place myself in the character while listening to the story.
"If I can't picture myself in the role I don't do it. This character goes through an interesting transformation from a young, innocent girl who aspires to be an actress to someone whose life changes after she falls in love with a gangster.
"It's based in the 1980s and will be interesting to get into a character during that time. "
Talking about her third film on the trot with Akshay, Sonakshi says, "It's my third film with him. I think we share very good on-screen chemistry which is why people keep casting us together.
"He's a very good co-star and fun on the sets. He has got a great sense of humour and is very grounded despite his superstar status."
