If the current reports are to be believed then Kareena Kapoor is all set to play the role of the yesteryear’s actress Mandakini in the sequel of Once Upon A Time In Mumbai which will be directed by Milan Lutharia. It seems that producer Ekta Kapoor is going to make this movie a grand affair as she has already roped in Akshay Kumar to play the role of Dawood Ebrahim in it.
It is known that Mandakini was a muse of the Don himself and if Kareena agrees to play the love interest of Akshay in the movie her character will be modeled on Mandakini’s persona. While the makers insist that the sequel will be story of Shoaib (played by Emraan Hashmi in the first part) over Dawood Ibrahim, they had made similar claims that Sultaan Mirza’s character was not modeled on lines of Haji Mastan, though we all know the truth now.
Interestingly Kareena was supposed to work with Milan Lutharia years ago in the movie Chori Chori but due to date problems she opted out as her role went to Rani Mukherji. Mandakini is herself famous for her transparent white outfit scene in Raam Teri Ganga Maili years ago.
