Sonam Finally Said Yes to Abbas-Mustan’s The Italian Job

Once again, we are talking about Abbas Mustan’s The Italian Job. But this we are talking not who’s next opted from the project, but the Good news is that Sonam Kapoor is back again in the project. Yaah, Its true that Sonam Kapoor who has been forbidden to sign any other project, will now work opposite to Abhishek Bachchan’s in the Italian Job.

Abbas Mustan was facing problems in casting of female actress in opposite to Abhishek Bachchan from the long time. Earlier also, we already reported Katrina Kaif then Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra also turned down from the film.

Though, Sonam was very keen to work on this project but due to Pankaj Kapoor’s forbidden from signing any other project until the completion of Mausam, the actress was unable to sign the project. Sheetal Talwar, producer of Mausam also confirmed the news,

“It’s true. Pankajji has asked Sonam not to sign any more films until Mausam is done. Her dates in November, when we suppose The Italian Job will start, are with us. There’s no question of date adjustment. I am sure Sonam understands the situation. We all adore her. She’s magical in front of the camera.”

But now the latest news is that Sonam is again back in the project. A source says,

“Sonam has been cast opposite Abhishek. She is very much doing the film. One doesn’t know what transpired behind the scenes, but Sonam is back on board.”

Well, whatever be the story, but, I hope, Abbas Mustan must have a huge sigh of relief after signing their Leading Lady for their dream project.
