The film 'Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Dobara' has been directed by Milan Luthria and produced by Ekta Kapoor and Shobha Kapoor.
After 'Lootera' in which Sonakshi Sinha does first ever intimate scene with Ranveer Singh, the actress will be seen cosying up to Akshay Kumar and Imran Khan in 'Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai'.
'Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Dobara' is a crime gangster film which features Akshay Kumar, Imran Khan, Sonali Bendre and Sonakshi Sinha.
Reportedly, the film will also feature a sequence with Akshay Kumar viewing a cricket match, which has also been shown in a trailer.
But director Milan Luthria was looking for an older actor, and that's why he selected Akshay Kumar.
For the female lead, several female actors - Illeana D'Cruz, Kareena Kapoor, Kangna Ranaut, Sonam Kapoor and Deepika Padukone - were considered. And Sonakshi Sinha was finally signed.
The chemistry between Imran and Sonakshi in the film is impressive.
The Akshay Kumar-Sonakshi Sinha starrer is a sequel to the 2010 hit film 'Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai'.
Reportedly, Shahid Kapoor was signed to play the second male lead. But Imran Khan was finalized.
Akshay Kumar essays the role (fictitious) of gangster Dawood Ibrahim.
Sonakshi Sinha and Akshay Kumar were earlier seen in 'Rowdy Rathore'.

The film will be released on Independence Day, 15th August 2013.
Since the release date of the film is August 15, 2013, it avoids clashing with Rohit Shetty directorial Chennai Express.
