While Sonakshi Sinha doesn't want to do another hero-centric film post Dabangg 2 and Rowdy Rathore, Asin's schedule is jam-packed with films like Most Wanted in 2013 with Salman and Sajid Nadiawala's upcoming film based on Chetan Bhagat's novel, Two States, opposite SRK.

Ileana D'Cruz, who is making her Bollywood debut with Ranbir's Barfee has agreed to do the role.

The movie will be an action flick directed by N Linguswamy, who also directed the original Tamil film, with Shahid Kapur in the lead role. The Tamil version also starred R Madhavan, Arya, Sameera Reddy and Amala Paul in the lead roles while Ashutosh Rana, Thambi Ramaiah and Nasser played supporting roles.
