'The film's USP is Sonakshi, since we're both fighting for her,' Akshay quipped.
Quelling speculations of the story being inspired by real-life incidents, the cast insisted that OUATIM 2 was a work of fiction that takes off from its prequel.
Directed by Milan Luthria and produced by Ekta Kapoor and Shobha Kapoor, it is the much-awaited sequel to the 2010 blockbuster, ONCE UPON A TIME IN MUMBAAI. The sequel features a fresh cast - Akshay Kumar, Imran Khan, Sonakshi Sinha and Sonali Bendre.
The film will showcase the era of the 1980s and is reported to be a love triangle between the leading actors and the gang war of the gangsters.
The film also marks the return of Sonali Bendre to mainstream cinema.
