While Sidharth Malhotra has been signed on for quite a few upcoming projects, his leading ladies haven’t been confirmed yet. But we’ve come to know that Vikramaditya Motwane has approached Sonakshi Sinha to star opposite the actor in his next venture.

“It’s not finalised yet, but Vikram has verbally discussed his film with Sonakshi. She is yet to hear the script and take a call. But it might just work out since Sonakshi has had a good rapport with Vikram, who she has worked with before (in Lootera; 2013). It’s too early to talk about it, because the film is over six months away from hitting the floors,” says an industry insider.

The director apparently wants to be careful with his casting, keeping in mind the next part to his film. “Since plans are afoot to make a sequel, the female actor has to be right for the first as well as the second film,” adds the insider.
Right now, Sidharth is busy preparing for his ‘fighter’ avatar for the adaptation of the Hollywood film, Warrior (2011). He was also said to be starring in the Bollywood remake of French hit, Priceless (2006), opposite Anushka Sharma.
Despite repeated attempts, Sidharth and Vikramaditya couldn’t be reached for a comment.
