Sources have suggested that Sonam Kapoor has been cast in Sooraj Barjatya’s next film under Rajshree Productions. The director and production company have been behind hugely successful films such as Maine Pyar Kiya (1989), Hum Aapke Hain Koun (1994) and Hum Saath Saath Hain (1999). All three films had Bollywood megastar Salman Khan as the leading man. It was already confirmed from before that Salman will be playing the leading man in Barjatya’s next. Shooting for the film has been scheduled for June 2014.
Deepika Padukone was initially predicted for the female lead; but apparently cannot commit to the project due to date issues. Hence, if rumours are to be true, this will be Salman and Sonam’s second pairing after Saawariya (2007). Sonam made her acting debut in Saawariya along with Ranbir Kapoor, which was directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali. However, Salman did make a guest appearance in this film where he acted alongside Sonam in some scenes.
A source from Rajshree Productions reported the following to the Indian media regarding Sonam and Barjatya’s next film. “We are working on the dates, 99 per cent we will decide about the leading lady in a day or two. Most likely, it is Sonam who is going to act in the film.”
Will Sonam bag this dream project and follow in the footsteps of Bhagyashree and Madhuri Dixit? We will bring you confirmation, as well as updates on this exciting project, as and when we receive it!
