Newcomer Patralekha, who made her debut earlier this year with the much-acclaimed Citylights۪, has now been signed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali for his upcoming production.

Confirming the news to Mumbai Mirror, the actress said, It actually feels like a dream to have got an opportunity to work under Bhansali sir’s banner- that too in my second film. It’s an interesting role, and is quite different from the part I played in Citylights. I am looking forward to this film.۝

The film, to be directed by Anuradha Tiwari, is said to be an intense romantic drama, which will be shot in Mumbai and Banaras. Though a male lead is yet to be finalised, shooting will commence from January 2015.
