Ever since Sooraj Barjatya announced his return to direction with a new film starring Salman Khan, T’town actresses have been trying their best to bag this prestigious project. Earlier there were reports that Deepika Padukone has been doing everything in her capacity to work with Salman. When Sooraj Barjatya was seen at a party in Deepika’s house, the rumours gained further credence. However, the latest buzz is that Deepika has been beaten to the post by another actress – Sonam Kapoor!
Reports say Sonam Kapoor is likely to reunite with Salman Khan for Sooraj Barjatya's upcoming film after co-starring with him in her debut Saawariya. "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," said a source from Rajshree productions.
The makers of the film had apparently approached Deepika but things did not materialise due to date issues. Deepy has a super busy date diary and may not be able to accommodate this film. Meanwhile, if things go as per plan, this will be Sonam’s big coup!
The film is likely to go on floors in June this year.
