The ensemble cast of Sanjay Gupta's SHOOTOUT AT WADALA is getting bigger by the day. The star-studded sequel of 2012 already features Anil Kapoor, John Abraham & Kangana Ranaut. Recently it was revealed that Manoj Bajpai had been signed up to play the role of Shabbir.

And now the latest addition to the set-up is of Sonu Sood. Sanjay Gupta who has been on the lookout for an actor to play Dawood in SHOOT OUT AT WADALA has finally zeroed in on Sonu Sood.


Confirming the news, Sonu said, "I am extremely thrilled to be a part of this prestigious project. Sanjay Gupta is one of the best technicians we have in the industry. He presents his actors like no one else. On the other hand, Ekta Kapoor is one of the most prolific producers. She leaves no stone unturned for the success of her films."

Dawood has always been an important character in Hindi films and a strong actor was needed to portray it. Sonu adds, "It's an iconic role."

Sanjay Gupta says, "It is the clash of the titans. Who better to play young Dawood than Sonu Sood? His body language and his physique work for the role perfectly. It is a very important character in the film. We show how Dawood forms his D company the very night his brother Shabbir dies. John plays Manya Surve. The clash of two of the best bodies in the industry should be interesting to watch."

The film based on a story by Hussain Zaidi deals with the rise of Dawood in the underworld and his rivalry with Many Surve. It talks about the death of Dawood's brother Shabbir and the encounter of Manya Surve reportedly orchestrated by Dawood.

The rest of the cast is expected to be announced soon.

SHOOTOUT AT WADALA, a Balaji-White Feather Films co-production, is slated for December 7 release. It goes into production this week.
