After a long search for the leading lady, director Jagmohan Mundra has finally made his decision. Young Sonia will be played by none other than the gorgeous Preity Zinta. As we all know, Jagmohan Mundra had already decided on who would play the older Sonia Gandhi. That part will be played by the hot Italian actress Monica Balluchi.
This film is intended to be a biography of sorts. The film will cover various details of Sonia’s life. The audience will be shown incidents from her youth, her work life and of course her love life too. Meeting with Rajeev Gandhi, marriage and life in India – all the aspects will be covered.
The latter part of the film will show her entry into politics and her pivotal role as one of the highest ranking leaders of The Indian National Congress. The movie is yet in the scripting stage and promises to attract audiences from all age groups.
The reason Preity is being offered the role of young Sonia is that she seems to resemble Sonia more than any other actress. It remains to be seen if Preity can pull this one off with aplomb and sans her bubbliness!
