Imran Khan’s dates govern casting of Milan Talkies

By Hindustan Times

There has been a lot of buzz surrounding the female lead of Milan Talkies. Although Sonakshi Sinha was believed to have bagged the part opposite Imran Khan, rumour mills now suggest that the actor has been dropped from Ekta Kapoor’s production. Reason: she refused to forego her Indian avatar for her character in Tigmanshu Dhulia’s film.

According to insiders, until some time ago, Sonakshi was among the frontrunners. But she was never officially roped in because of date issues. “She was never finalised because she is busy with several other films and it might be difficult for her to make time around early next year. The makers were aware of this situation. That’s why her inclusion in the film was never official,” says the insider.
