With the recent arrival of baby Inaaya Naumi Kemmu, proud parents Soha Ali Khan and Kunal Khemu are no doubt on cloud nine. Although there are busy times ahead with the newest addition, it seems Ali Khan will be doubly busy as she will be preparing to return back to work in December.
Reported in Ahemdabad Mirror, the ‘Ghayal Once Again’ (2016) actress will be returning for the third instalment of the ‘Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster’ (2011) franchise, starring Jimmy Shergill, Irrfan Khan and Mahi Gill. This time around Sanjay Dutt will be playing the new ‘Gangster’ and Chitrangada Singh as his love interest in the film.
Producer Rahul Mittra shared that once the script had been finalised Ali Khan had given her approval. “When Mirror reported (May 22) that Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster 3 was in it’s final stages of scripting and that after Randeep Hooda and Irrfan Khan, Sanjay Dutt had come on board the project as the ‘Gangster’, Soha was the first person to call me and congratulate the entire team on the casting coup. I had told her then that we had a special role for her in this sequel and she had immediately given her nod.”
The ‘Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster’ (2011) team are currently gearing up to shoot the second schedule for the film in Jodhpur which will happen in mid-October. Thereafter in December the ‘Tum Mile’ (2009) star will join them in Mumbai as they commence the third schedule.
In ‘Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster Returns’ (2013), Ali Khan played a young princess (Ranjana), falls in love with Khan a ragged royal (Indrajeet Singh), but their relationship is soon cut short as Shergill (Aditya Pratap Singh) who also loves the princess, forces her father to get them married. However, Mittra didn’t give too much away regarding Ali Khan’s role for the forthcoming instalment, other than there will be twists involved. “Soha’s character was a modern, ambitious girl earlier who eventually falls in love with her husband. You will see new shades to her personality this time. Get set for another game of Russian roulette.”
