Omung Kumar is set to direct a biopic on Sarabjit Singh and he apparently is now looking at who he can cast in the protagonist’s role, having confirmed Aishwarya Rai Bachchan to play Singh’s sister. News has it that Farhan Akhtar, Sonu Sood, Fawad Khan and Randeep Hooda are favourites to bag the role.
Indian Express report a source stating, “Omung already has three-four names in mind and they are not newcomers. The movie will capture Dalbir�۪s battle but it is not entirely about that. It is also about the struggles Sarabjit faced while in Pakistan. He will be talking to few actors and finally decide on someone in a few days”.
No doubt whoever ends up being signed will be interesting to see alongside Rai Bachchan in the film.
