After playing the traditional housewife on television for years, Sakshi Tanwar had an image transformation of sorts on her daily soap opposite Ram Kapoor.
But this time, looks like the actress is all set to go another step forward with sources saying she could be cast as a commercial sex worker in an upcoming film, helmed by Ankush Bhatt. Producer Irshad Khan confirms, “Yes, Sakshi will play the second lead in the movie. We will be signing her shortly.”
The project is said to portray the brothels on Mumbai. For the lead role apparently Konkona Sen Sharma was approached. But with that not working out, the makers are looking out for another actress. A couple of years back, Sakshi also shot for a film titled Mohalla Assi opposite Sunny Deol but the project got shelved.
