Filmmaker Abhishek Dudhaiya’s ‘Bhuj: The Pride Of India’ is all set for an August release. The film will star Ajay Devgn as an IAF Squadron Leader Vijay Karnik with Sanjay Dutt, Sonakshi Sinha, Rana Daggubati, Ammy Virk, and Pranitha Subhash in other major roles.
It was alleged that ‘Ishaqzaade’ fame, Parineeti Chopra was in talks to play the role of a spy in the film. Unfortunately, sources from the industry have revealed that the actress had prior engagements like the sports biopic ‘Saina’ and thriller-drama ‘The Girl On The Train’ and hence, won’t be able to commit to the upcoming film.
It is now being said that dancer turned actress, Nora Fatehi has been chosen instead for the role Chopra was supposed to play. “She came on board recently and has started attending workshops for her role with the director, also focusing on getting the body language of a spy right. She will start shooting after January 12, as part of the war drama’s 15-day last schedule,” a source mentioned regarding the recent development.
Nora will also be seen ‘Street Dancer 3D’, which will be released on 24th January, 2020. She will also be making a cameo in ‘Baaghi 3’.
