Soha Ali Khan to play Meenakshi Seshadri's role in ‘Ghayal 2’

Soha Ali Khan has been signed to play the female lead in the sequel to 1990 action drama, ‘Ghayal’. She will star opposite Sunny Deol. "To put an end to the confusion, I am playing the female lead in 'Ghayal 2' but it's not a romantic film -it is, as expected, an action thriller," Soha posted on twitter.

The sequel to ‘Ghayal’ was in the pipeline for quite sometime and now things are in track and the film will go on board early next year. Soha whose last film, ‘Mr Joe B. Carvalho’ badly doomed in the box-office will reprise Meenakshi Seshadri's role in the original.

According to a source, the sequel will start where original ends. Soha’s character will be fresh and very original. She will be also seen doing some stunts. The cast and the crew were recently spotted shooting in Mumbai's Kala Ghoda.

The original director Rahul Rawail will be replaced by Rahul Rawail.
