Sonam Kapoor to star in Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s next

Looks like the Bhaag Milkha Bhaag director is mighty impressed with the Kapoor lass and wants to cast her in his next period love story

There is no doubt about the fact that Sonam Kapoor as an actor has evolved drastically over the past few years. And we are sure ace director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra totally agrees with us on this! Well, that’s the reason why Mr Mehra is keen on casting the B-town babe in his next titled Mirza Sahiban.

The actor director combo has already worked together in Delhi-6 and Bhaag Milkha Bhaag so far. While Sonam didn’t really have much to do in both the films as they were hero-centric, with Mirza Sahiban the director wants to explore the actor’s caliber to the fullest. Talking about the project Rakesh said, “We’re working on the script, trying to polish it as much as we can.”

Now it would be interesting to see Sonam play a more serious and a mature role, no?
