She is the Bollywood actress who bore the brunt of cruel jibes for turning out in unflattering gowns, in her last Cannes outing.
According to multiple media reports, director duo Abbas Mustan have signed Neil for a three-film-deal, including his upcoming action thriller ‘Players’, which is slated to hit theaters on January 6, 2012.
If sources are to be believed, after watching Neil’s acting in the film, the makers are considering Neil for SRK’s character in the remake of 1993 blockbuster film ‘Baazigar’.
A friend of the actor revealed, “Abbas-Mustan, after seeing Neil’s bad boy act in the rushes of their forthcoming film have decided to cast him in their remake of Baazigar.”
Apparently, when the promotion of Pankaj Kapoor’s ‘Mausam’ was taking place, as organized by the film’s producers Sheetal Talwar and Vistaar Religare Film Fund, Sonam found herself stuck-up with the shooting of Abbas Mustan’s ‘Players’.
She requested the director duo to allow her a restricted off and promised to be back on sets after attending the event. Well, Sonam did return, and shot till late night!
