Rakesh Sawant’s under production film was recently in news for all the wrong reasons. The filmmaker, who is also Rakhi Sawant’s brother had signed Laila Khan for this film. But the actress was later found to be brutally murdered.
Now, Rakesh has decided to restart the film. He has signed Veena Malik for the role that was supposed be played by Laila Khan.
Rakesh, who will be directing the film, said that he had launched Laila Khan and knew her very well. He said that his motive behind making this film is to show the real story behind Laila’s death. Rakesh believes that the media is not showing the true story.
He signed Veena Malik because the role required someone who can look glamorous and he found Veena to be perfect for the role. When asked why he didn’t sign his sister for the movie, Rakesh revealed that the movie has some bold scenes and he would not have been able to shoot them with her. However, Rakhi Sawant is playing the role of Azmina, Laila’s sister.
Rakesh is not afraid of an A certificate for his film and is fully prepared for it. The shooting for the film will start in August and will also star Om Puri and Jackie Shroff.
