Actress Sonakshi Sinha’s brother Luv Sinha confirmed that the actress was signed to play the lead role of gangster’s moll in upcoming movie ‘Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai 2’.

“It’s official! @sonakshisinha is part of one of the films I'm looking forward to watching the most. ONCE UPON A TIME IN MUMBAI.AGAIN,” poster Luv Sinha on Twitter.

This will be the third time that the actress will be paired opposite Akshay Kumar. The actress is already doing Shirish Kunder’s ‘Joker’ and Prabhu Deva’s ‘Rowdy Rathore’ with Akshay Kumar.

“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,” said Sonakshi Sinha to a daily.

Previously actresses like Kareena Kapoor and Kangna Ranaut were approached with the same roles. But in the end Sonakshi Sinha has been signed.

When asked what made her accept the role she said, “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.”

The movie ‘Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai 2’ is a sequel to blockbuster hit ‘Once Upon A Time in Mumbaai’.

The movie stars Akshay Kumar, who will be playing Shoaib, a character modeled on underworld don Dawood Ibrahim, Sonakshi Sinha and Imran Khan. The movie is directed by ‘The Dirty Picture’ fame Milan Luthria and produced by Ekta Kapoor.
