Last seen in Eros International’s comic-caper Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi (2018), Sonakshi Sinha might play the female lead in the forthcoming Bollywood movie Bole Chudiyaan.

Starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui as the male lead, Bole Chudiyaan will be helmed by debutant filmmaker Shamas Nawab Siddiqui, who is the younger brother of the actor.

Before Sonakshi Sinha, Shraddha Kapoor’s name also hit the headlines for being in consideration for the female lead in the movie. But looks like the Haider (2014) actress turned down the offer which led the makers to approach Sona.

“Shamas was looking for a leading lady and found it in Sonakshi Sinha. He thinks that Sona is quite apt for the role and she will be featuring alongside his brother Nawazuddin Siddiqui,” a source revealed.

“The actress too has liked the script and has given a verbal nod for the film. The makers will be making an official announcement as soon as the final formalities are completed,” added the source.

Sonakshi Sinha is presently shooting for Karan Johar’s much-awaited production Kalank. Directed by Abhishek Verman, the period drama also features Sanjay Dutt, Madhuri Dixit, Alia Bhatt and Aditya Roy Kapur on its ensemble cast. It releases on 19th April, 2019.
