Will Sonali Bendre beat Tabu to be a part of Ekta Kapoor’s new serial?

Buzz has it that the Balaji Telefilms owner is looking for a leading lady for her upcoming small screen magnum opus and it seems that the India’s Got Talent judge might just inch ahead of the Jai Ho actor for the role

Ekta Kapoor has been working on a new script for quite some time. A script, which would have a female protagonist and apparently, she has been eyeing Tabu or Sonali Bendre for the lead role. Tabu was the front runner for doing the role, but her lack of exposure on the small screen might just not work in her favour. Whereas Sonali Bendre’s stint on television as the judge of some reality TV shows might work to her advantage and land this lead role in her kitty. Not to forget, Sonali impressed Ekta with her small cameo in Once Upon A Time In Mumbai Dobaraa.

A little birdie tells us that the show is about a woman who has been forced to take up a job after her husband ends up in jail. Now we don’t know anything more about the story but it sure seems to be gripping. Also, with such good B-Town heroines vying for the lead role, this might turn out to be Ekta’s trump card.

We expect the show to be as grand as its cast, no matter who plays the protagonist. What do you say BollywoodLifers, who would you like to see doing this show?
