Sonam Kapoor has finally confirmed that she has signed Sooraj Barjatya’s next (still untitled) opposite superstar Salman Khan and will start shooting for the film after completing Arbaaz Khan’s Dolly Ku Doli.
“I was in negotiations with Sooraji for the last four months. We’ve finally worked out all the modalities. And, yes I am doing the film. I’ll be getting into the film as soon as I finish shooting Arbaaz Khan’s Dolly Ki Doli”, Sonam said in a statement.
“I’ve grown up watching Sooraji’s films. To be actually working in his film is a very exciting prospect for me. It’s double exciting as I’ll get to star with Salman Khan for the second time (after Saawariya)”, she added.
“People seem to remember that I was paired with Ranbir Kapoor in Saawariya. They forget my character was actually in love with Salman .In fact my character chose in the end to go with Salman rather than Ranbir.Salman and I had shot together for Saawariya for thirty days", she said further.
There is a strong buzz in the industry that Salman Khan will be having a double role in the movie. The movie also stars Anupam Kher, Neil Nitin Mukesh and Deepak Dobriyal in prominent roles. The film goes on floor in June this year and will release on Diwali 2015.
