Kangana to play Madhubala
Once Upon a Time in Mumbai could possibly be Kangana Ranaut?s magnum opus as she is slated to star as the veteran actress Madhubala who was also
Haji Mastan?s love interest. The film deals with the real story of the underworld don of the 1960?s, Haji Mastan.
Once Upon a Time in Mumbai will be produced by Ekta Kapoor?s Balaji films and directed by Milan Luthria. Before zeroing in on Kangana, Luthria had also considered Katrina Kaif and Priyanka Chopra for the role. Our source said, ?Kangana?s selection is a good thing as although Ajay Devgan and Emraan Hashmi were on board, the producers couldn?t shoot for a long time because Luthria was unable to select an actress. Only recently did Luthria and Ekta settle on Kangana.? Now, with cast in place, the film is scheduled to go on floors in April and will be shot across Mumbai.
Although Bollywood has made films on Haji Mastan before, like Deewar, this film will concentrate on the romantic angle between Haji Mastan and Madhubala. Ajay Devgan will play Haji Mastan and Emraan Hashmi will play the young Dawood.
