Dangal girl Sanya Malhotra has moved on to bag a very prestigious project. Ritesh Batra will now direct Sanya in a movie that is set in Mumbai.
Sanya, who played Aamir Khan’s younger daughter in Dangal, has been more or less kept away from the public eye.
It was taken for granted that nothing appeared to be happening in Sanya’s career. Nevertheless, it is now ascertained that the actress has been busy since Ritesh signed her right after Dangal.
Talking excitedly about the project is Sanya’s co-star in the film, Nawazuddin Siddiqui.
He affirms, “Sanya has a tremendous role in Ritesh’s film. I can’t disclose much about the flick except that we will be caught getting along a totally different take on Mumbai as compared with Ritesh’s previous outing, The Lunchbox. We begin filming in Mumbai from October 4.”
Nawaz, who has worked with Ritesh in The Lunch Box, is excited to join forces with the director once again.
“The Lunchbox was a turning point for Ritesh and for me. We’ve both grown as artistes since then. So, it would be a pleasure to shoot with him again,” says Nawaz.
