Sonam Kapoor has an impressive line-up of films set to release this year. First, she will be seen opposite Farhan Akhtar in the Milkha Singh biopic, Bhaag Milkha Bhaag (BMB), after that, she will return to the big screen with Anand Rai’s Ranjhanaa alongside Kolaveri di south star, Dhanush.
Sonam Kapoor teams a quirky print with an interesting neckpiece. She looked elegant and charming at the premiere of Mai on Thursday.
However, currently the industry is most curious about her next Yash Raj Films (YRF) production. She has been paired with Ayushmann Khurrana in the currently-untitled project. And the latest news is that she will be playing the role of a lawyer in the movie.
“She is very excited about the role. Like all her films, she will undergo training for this one too. And she is looking forward to it because she wants to play the role to complete perfection,” says a source close to the actor. “She wants to be well-prepared before she faces the camera for this film, which is why she will be devoting time to specially prepare for her part well in advance.”
To understand lawyers and their body language and general demeanour better, the makers are scheduling meetings where Sonam will meet young professionals. “She will be chatting with them, taking tips and asking them questions and in general, observing them for a few days before the film goes on the floors,” says a source. This is the third time, back-to-back, that Sonam will return to Delhi to shoot for this film. She has shot BMB and Ranjhanaa there previously.
