The sequel stars Akshay Kumar, Sonakshi and Imran Khan in lead roles while Sonali will be playing a significant role that was chalked out especially for the actress.

"I will be part of 'Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai 2'. Its a great role. With the film it feels like I'm coming home since Shobha Kapoor has been Goldie's very close family friend. Also, Ekta Kapoor is a creative genius and has an amazing story sense so I trust her judgement on this. I have worked with Milan before...So its very comfortable space," Sonali said in a statement here.

Director Milan Luthria on his part said, "I am thrilled to add another twist to the casting of 'Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai 2'. Sonali is not only gorgeous to look at but she is a terrific actress. She suits the role. My crew and I are super excited to offer her this platform."

Sonakshi will be seen in the movie opposite Akshay Kumar, who plays Shoaib, a character modelled on underworld don Dawood Ibrahim.

The shooting for the film is expected to begin from August.
