JANNAT fame Sonal Chauhan who is geared up for the prolific veteran J.P. Dutta’s PALTAN is now finding herself in the league of the diva called Madhuri Dixit!!.
Yes, the lovely Sonal Chauhan will be playing a pivotal role in Mahesh Manjrekar’s untitled comeback that stars Vidyut Jamwal and Shruti Haasan.
Reported to be a gangster drama, Sonal Chauhan is the welcome addition according to our sources and guess what.
A source close to the production informs that the movie is an underworld gangster drama with an interesting ode to the iconic DEVDAS. While Shruti will be seen playing Paro, Sonal will portray the role of Chandramukhi in the movie.
Hmm that’s something to rave for!!. Well the role of Chandramukhi is certainly in the ‘BUCKET LIST’ of actresses who want to prove their mettle as an actor and not just a glam quotient. Sonal Chauhan seemed to have bagged the opportunity and it will be interesting to see how this new age Chandramukhi woos the handsome and charming Vidyut Jamwal.
Legends like Madhuri Dixit, Vyjayanthimala had mesmerized the audience as Chandramukhi in 2002 AND 1955 respectively. Bollywood’s new age adaptations of Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay’s classic novel on love and redemption saw Kalki Koechlin in DEV D (2009) as the outspoken Chandramukhi and recently Aditi Rao Hydari appeared as the new age version of the same in DAAS DEV.
