After successful biopic "Bhaag Milkha Bhaag" and hit masala movie "Chennai Express" comes gangster drama "Once Upon Ay Time in Mumbaai Dobaara!". Directed by Milan Luthria, the much-awaited Akshay Kumar-starrer hits the screen Friday.
While the prequel was more about the gangster world, this one - as the tagline says - is about personal tussle between the heroes trying to win over their common love interest - Sonakshi, who plays a budding actress in the movie.
Produced by Balaji Motion Pictures, the movie is made with a budget of approximately Rs.100 crore and, according to distributors, it will be released on approximately 2,500 screens.
It also brings back Sonali Bendre on the silver screen after almost a decade and she did it for her friend Luthria.
"The film is directed by Milan Lutharia and I have known him since a long time. He used to assist (Mahesh) Bhatt sahab and my first ever song 'Sambhala hai maine...' was shot by Milan. So the equation and the relationship go very far back," Sonali said.
After the stupendous box office success of "Chennai Express", it will be interesting to see if the trio of Akshay, Imran and Sonakshi can turn the audience's interest in their favour.
