Sonal Chauhan set for a modern day fairy tale
The actress has been signed on by veteran painter MF Hussain’s son Owais Hussain for his directorial debut tentatively titled Punjab 69. The film — a fairy tale of sorts set in modern times — has Anurag Sinha of Black and White fame playing Sonal’s love interest, revealed an insider. A source said, “Sonal is very excited about this film. She found Owais very creative and was looking forward to working with him ever since she read the script.Although the film happens to be Sonal’s second in Bollywood, the actress has been quite busy down South and she’s recently wrapped up a film opposite Shivrajkumar.
The source adds, “Many thought that she’s on a sabbatical, but she was only waiting for the right kind of script to come along. And Owais’s script just bowled her over.But while on the professional front the actress has been on a high, personally she’s undergoing a harrowing time, all thanks to an over-zealous fan who’s been stalking her in Chandigarh, where she’s just begun shooting for Hussain’s film.A unit hand revealed, “After the shoot, several fans insisted on meeting Sonal and she obliged. However one fan kept stalking her even after that and even made it to her hotel.
Sonal alerted the security guards who discovered that the guy not only knew her exact room number, her schedule, her other locations but even her flight number!” The production unit has decided not to take it lightly and has shifted Sonal to another hotel and provided added security.
