Sonam Kapoor to play Sahibaan

Bollywood hottie Sonam Kapoor is making the right moves in showbiz by taking Bollywood by storm.

After winning accolades for her notable performance in “Saawariya” and “Delhi 6” Sonam has become a name to be reckoned. She is now been considered for plum roles. Sonam is all set to play ‘Sahibaan’ in a silver screen adaptation of "Mirza-Sahibaan", to be made by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra.

The idea of making ‘Sahibaan’ came to Rakeysh during the shoot of ‘Delhi 6’. Rakeysh used to address Sonam as `Bittu`, the character she played in ‘Delhi 6’. Then suddenly one day he started calling Sonam `Sahibaan`. At first Sonam was baffled by this new name from Rakeysh. But as the historical perspective and the literary antecedents of the character began to seep in, Sonam grew excited about the project and began to pester Rakeysh about the project.

The actor playing the role of ‘Mirza’ is yet unknown, but rumours have it that actor Abhishek Bachchan will play Sahibaan’s lover.
