Actor Akshay Kumar faces a new challenge as he gears up to portray one of the most feared Dons Dawood Ibrahim on the silver screen in the film ‘Once Upon a Time in Mumbai 2’. But even as the hunt for the coveted role of Mandakini, Dawood’s girlfriend is on, rumours & gossips are being splashed everywhere in the Bolly villa. Mandakini is the same lady who was once the leading actress in a famous (rather ill-famous) Raj Kapoor film!
Every passing day, a new actress is laying claim to playing Mandakini in the Milan Luthria thriller. From Kareena to Kangana, looks like every actress is pretty egged up about the project though it’s still not clear as to who will finally don the cloak of the Don’s ladylove.
Some 6 months ago, Kareena had egoistically declared that she is all set to not just play the powerful role but to also bathe under the waterfall in a replay of Mandakini’a famous semi-nude scene in Raj Kapoor’s ‘Ram Teri Ganga Maili’. Next, the leggy Deepika Padukone rolled out her legs and allowed the media to think that she is being considered for the role. And now, only a couple of days back, the once-curly haired Kangana Ranaut has managed to make the tabloids believe that it is she who will be depicting the special role.
However, the news coming in suggests that Sonakshi Sinha may finally clinch the role since her chemistry with Akshay has already been established (the two are doing ‘Joker’ and ‘Rowdy Rathore’).
But clearing the air on the speculations, Mr. Luthria has stated that currently, he is busy writing down the script and will make sure that the most suitable actress gets the role. However, he made one point clear that Kangana won’t be approached for the role since she has already played the character of Haji Mastan’s girl in OUATIM 1. Aw, bad luck, Kangana!
