Shraddha Kapoor to act with Akshay Kumar

The Aashiqui 2 actress Shraddha Kapoor seems to be grabbing meaty roles. The 21 year old actress whose portrayal of Arohi in the hit movie Aashiqui 2 got her much critical acclaim, has signed Akshay Kumar’s next film Gabbar. Now this comes just after the actress okaying Shahid Kapoor’s Haider.

Producer Sanjay Leela Bhansali said the actress has an air of innocence that is perfect for the role. Besides that, acting alongside Akshay Kumar definitely gives a bump to her career; a bump that can land her in the superstar league.

“This is a huge high indeed for the petite young girl who is getting attention from all the right quarters,” a source says, “Gabbar is about to go on floors but the leading lady wasn’t finalized. Though there were quite a few names floating around, no final announcement was made. By bagging Gabbar, Shraddha’s career should take a good leap.”

We wonder if she can make her screen presence known despite acting with an actor of Akshay Kumar’s stature…
