The stunning former Miss World Aishwarya Rai will star in Hindi movie Sarabjit Singh, along with Randeep Hooda, revealed the movie’s director Omung Kumar on Twitter.
“Sarabjit” is a biopic on the late Indian death row prisoner in Pakistan, who was murdered in jail last year.
“Yes Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Randeep Hooda are going to be apart in my next biopic Sarbjit.” Kumar wrote on Twitter.
Randeep Hooda will play the role of Sarabjit while Aishwarya will don the role of his sister Dalbir Kaur, who fought to get him released from Pakistan jail.
The shooting of the movie “Sarabjit” will star in October 2015 for 70 days in Punjab.
Sarabjit was tried and convicted by Pakistan court for bomb attacks in Lahore and Faisalabad that killed 14 people in 1990.
According to Sarabjit, he was an Indian farmer who strayed into Pakistan while drunk.
Some unconfirmed sources say, Sarabjit was an Indian spy working for intelligence agency Indian Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) and was working undercover in Pakistan.
His fellow jail mates attacked Sarabjit in April 2013, and he died after six days at the Jinnah Hospital, Lahore.
Aishwarya Rai will start shooting for the movie after she completes shooting for “Jazbaa” which will be released on October 9, 2015.
