Last seen in Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi (2018), Sonakshi Sinha has added yet another exciting project to her pocket. The actress has been cast to play the female lead in an upcoming slice-of-life movie which also stars Varun Sharma, Annu Kapoor, Kulbhushan Kharbanda and Nadira Babbar in its cast.

The untitled film will be produced by Bhushan Kumar, Mahaveer Jain and director-turned-producer Mrighdeep Singh Lamba. Shilpi Dasgupta will be making her directorial debut with it. The movie is set to go on floors in Punjab on 25th January.

The story of the film unfolds in Hoshiyarpur, Punjab. Sonakshi will be seen in the role of a carefree, free-spirited girl who can go to any lengths when it comes to bringing joy to her family, even if it means sacrificing her own dreams.

Talking about her character in the film, Sinha says, “I am extremely happy to be part of this film which is so close to the world around us, to step into the shoes of a small town girl, and face the hilarious, madcap challenges thrown at her. Full of flavour, fun and emotions, I am so looking forward to beginning this journey.”
