By HT

Mumbai, Feb. 23 -- Randeep Hooda will play Sarabjit Singh (the Indian national who was accused of spying by a Pakistani court) in film-maker Omung Kumar's next. Apparently, Sarabjit's sister, Dalbir Kaur, dotes on Randeep.

A source close to the actor says, "Randeep met Dalbir for the first time in Mumbai, before they started shooting for the movie. And when they were filming at Bhikhiwind, a town along the India-Pakistan border in Punjab, recently, Dalbir dropped in on the sets to meet Randeep. She shared stories of her and Sarabjit's childhood. This helped Randeep prepare for his role."

The source adds that Dalbir has invited Randeep to her house. "He has promised her that he will come over for a meal. They share a great bond now," adds the source.

When contacted, Randeep says, "It was a pleasure to meet Sarabjit's family and friends in Bhikhiwind. Dalbir and both her daughters are adorable."
