Dabangg 2, Arbaaz Khan has focussed his attention on expanding his home banner, Arbaaz Khan Productions after the grand success of Dabang 2. For his upcoming film centring on the women, the producer turned actor has signed Sonam Kapoor to play the lead in a film called Dolly Ki Doli which will be directed by debutant Abhishek Dogra, who had previously assisted R. Balki on Paa.
Sonam will be seen playing the role of Dolly, a punky North Indian girl in the film, which is expected to hit the screens in January 2014. Shot across the Northern heartland three more significant characters will be casted soon.
Arbaaz later confirmed the news where he said, “We wanted a girl who can do justice to the character. I’m happy to have Sonam onboard. When we narrated the script to her, she admitted that she could instantly identify with Dolly.”
He revealed that the film will be a quirky drama with strong comedic element. “It is one aspect of Sonam’s personality, which hasn’t been explored. If all goes well, we will be ready for release by the end of next year,” Arbaaz said.
