Chhote Nawab Saif Ali Khan gets the young and pretty Sonakshi Sinha as his co-actress for Tigmanshu Dhulia’s ambitious gangster film Bullet Raja. Saif and Sonakshi have never shared screen space, and are cast opposite each other for the first time.
The maverick director Tigmanshu Dhulia is counting his blessings. After his much acclaimed film Paan Singh Tomar, and his highly praised act in the recent hit Gangs Of Wasseypur 1 & 2, Dhulia is gearing up for his next film Bullet Raja. The film made news recently when the Dhulia roped in Saif Ali Khan to play the lead role.
Now, the grapevine is abuzz that the gangster film will have Sonakshi Sinha as well, playing the love interest of Saif , who’s last gangster act was seen in Omkara. However, Sonakshi’s role is not that of a gangster; she will be seen as a modern, educated and independent Bengali girl, who lands up among the gangsters.
Bullet Raja is scheduled to go on floors in November this year, and will be shot in Lucknow, Kolkata and Mumbai. The look of the film is not yet known, and neither the fact that whether the movie is set in contemporary India or in the past.
No matter what, Saif and Sonakshi sound a lethal combo.
