Bollywood actress Sonakshi Sinha was roped in for a digital project helmed by Toilet – Ek Prem Katha fame director Shree Narayan Singh, titled ‘Bulbul Tarang’. Latest reports said that the film will be a social drama which will revolve around dowry.
In March this year, Dabang actress Sonakshi Sinha wrapped up her debut OTT project, Amazon Prime Video series ‘Fallen’. Even before the release of her debut project she has signed two more digital projects- Heera Mandi under Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s banner and web film called Bulbul Tarang. Previous reports only said that the web film will be directed by Toilet – Ek Prem Katha fame director Shree Narayan Singh.
While revealing a little more about the movie, a source said, “It’s a social drama majorly in the satire zone that revolves around dowry and the horrific implications of the same. Sonakshi plays a carefree happy-go-lucky girl from a small town who sets out to bring a change and reform the social prejudices that exist in her town and community. It’s a coming of age film and when Sonakshi was approached for the same, the actress loved the script and her role. The whole idea touched her heart and she immediately said yes to the same.” (Bollywood Hungama)
Sonakshi will be entering the digital world with ‘Fallen’ which will release on Amazon Prime Video.
