"It's a great role. With the film it feels like I'm coming home since Shobha Kapoor has been (my husband) Goldie's very close family friend," Sonali, married to filmmaker Goldie Behl, said in a press statement.
"Additionally, Ekta is a creative genius and has an amazing story sense, so I trust her judgment on this. I've also worked with Milan (Luthria) before. So it's a very comfortable space," she added.
"Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai 2" is a sequel to the 2010 film "Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai" (OUTIM). Sonali was last seen in a guest appearance in 2003 film "Kal Ho Naa Ho". A special role has been chalked out for her comeback by Luthria.
"I'm thrilled to add another twist to the casting of 'OUATIM 2'. Sonali is not only gorgeous to look at and a terrific actress, but suits the role to the''''. My crew and I are super excited to offer her this platform," said the director, who scored brownie points with "The Dirty Picture".
