Sonam Kapoor and Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra have worked together for two films now namely Delhi 6 and Bhaag Milkha Bhaag. But her role in the movie didn’t really have much impact as the protagonists were the male leads – Abhishek Bachchan in Delhi 6 and Farhan Akhtar in the biopic.
But this time, the director is ready to give Sonam the time she deserves on-screen and they will be doing a film together for the third time which will be a period love-story Mirza Sahiban.
“We’re working on the script, trying to polish it as much as we can. But yes, that’s my next one,” says Rakeysh.
Speaking from Dubai, Rakeysh says, “Sonam, like everyone else got associated with Bhaag Milkha Bhaag because she believed in it. I mean, look at the man. We grew up reading about Milkha Singh. Stories about him are part of folklore. Sonam knew it was not a lengthy role. But she knew her role would have an impact.”
DDirector Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra gave a cameo in his latest flick but went unnoticed. Milkha Singh when flies on the plane for the first time gets scared and Rakeysh plays the captain of the flight who comes out and pacifies him. Laughs Rakeysh, “Nobody noticed but I was also in the last scene of Rang De Basanti as young Bhagat Singh’s father.”
