Sonam Kapoor will be starring opposite Vijay in a Tamil flick by A R Murugadoss
Sonam Kapoor has jumped on to the bandwagon of Bollywood actors who have dabbled in films down South.
After reading through scripts, the actress has finally decided to star in Ghajini director A R Murugadoss's action adventure, Maalai Nerathu Mazhaithuli. She will be romancing South star Vijay in this Tamil film.
That's not all. Apparently, while, Akshay Kumar is set to star as the lead in the Bollywood version of the film, it is quite likely that Sonam will play the female lead in both the versions.
A source reveals, "The producers were very keen to rope in Sonam as they felt she had the look to carry off the role. When they approached her with the script, she loved it and agreed to be part of the film.
Though the contract is still to be signed, it's almost confirmed that she is doing the film." The film that is slated for a 2012 release will be mostly shot in Mumbai. Sonam Kapoor and AR Murugadoss remained unavailable for comments.
