Katrina Kaif, Deepika Padukone or Kareena Kapoor: which one of these ladies will play the gangster’s moll to Akshay Kumar in Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai 2? And not just any glitzy glamorous airhead arm candy; one of these actresses will get to play the role of the stunning Mandaikni, of Ram Teri Ganga Maili fame.
While Akshay Kumar has been announced to play the underworld don in the sequel to director Milan Luthria’s Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai, Ekta Kapoor is yet to decide who will play the female lead in the sequel. Considering Mandakini’s flawless pearly complexion, Katrina and Kareena are obvious contenders for the role. But now, even the curvaceous Deepika is being considered for the part. Earlier Vidya Balan was also in the race for the role, but news is that she is being considered for another part in the film.
For those who came in late, the light-eyed Mandakini was one of the sexiest poster girls in the 80s who skyrocketed to fame as the village belle bathing under a waterfall in a white transparent sari in Raj Kapoor’s ‘Ram Teri Ganga Maili’. Though Mandakini’s filmy career dropped off the graph after that, she made the headlines because of her alleged proximity to gangster Dawood Ibrahim.
Who do you think will play Mandakini better: Katrina Kaif, Deepika Padukone, Kareena Kapoor or Vidya Balan?
