MUMBAI: The Aashiqui 2 fame Shraddha Kapoor is indeed going places. After witnessing a massive turnaround in her career post the film, she has now been signed opposite Akshay Kumar for Gabbar. The development is close on the heels of her giving a nod of approval to Shahid Kapoor's Haider.
Producer Sanjay Leela Bhansali was quite positive about Shraddha making the cut since he felt the pretty girl carried just the right kind of innocence that the character demanded.
This will be Shraddha first movie in the big league opposite a superstar like Akshay. Incidentally each of her next three films, The Villain, Haider and now Gabbar, has the leading man in the title, playing the central protagonist.
Not too long ago a certain Sonakshi Sinha also started on the similar lines with Dabangg, Rowdy Rathore and Son of Sardaar; so Shraddha seems to be having a gameplan.
