If reliable sources within the industry are to be believed, veteran filmmaker Sooraj Barjatya has finally found his leading lady in Sonam Kapoor.
Even though several names were discussed, sources say, Sonam was always Barjatya’s first and only choice to romance Salman Khan in his 2015 Diwali release.
While we await an official confirmation to confirm the development, the pre-production work is in progress as the film will go on floors in the third week of May 2014.
Salman has previously shared screen-space with Sonam in her debut film Saawariya, directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali.
Meanwhile, Neil Nitin Mukesh has also been signed to play Salman’s step brother in the film. His role will have shades of grey.
What do you think of the Salman – Sonam pairing? We think the two will look great together. Sonam is exactly the same age as Deepika Padukone, who was earlier rumoured to be a part of the film.
