Sonakshi Sinha paired opposite John Abraham in ‘Force 2’

The ‘Dabangg’ girl Sonakshi Sinha has been paired opposite John Abraham in Abhinay Deo’s ‘Force 2’. The 28-year-old actress is set to play a RAW agent in the sequel to the popular 2011 Vipul Shah film ‘Force’ which starred John Abraham alongside Vidyut Jamwal and Genelia D’Souza.

Confirming the news, Sonakshi said, “Yep yep! Told you I had news for you… Super excited to be playing a RAW agent in my next film – FORCE 2,” Sonakshi posted on twitter.

It is not yet confirmed whether Vidyut will also feature in the sequel. While the original was directed by Nishikant Kamat, the sequel is being helmed by Abhinay Deo. Earlier, Katrina Kaif’s name was surfaced for the female lead but the ‘Jagga Jasoos’ actress vehemently denied being in the film. 

"Reports about me doing the film opposite John are not true. There is nothing like 'Force 2' happening. The next film I would be working on is Anurag Basu's 'Jagga Jasoos'", Katrina told PTI.

This is the first time Sonakshi Singh and John Abraham will be paired opposite each other and their chemistry is going to be watch out. ‘Force 2’ is likely to go on floors in September this year and the makers are aiming for a release the film in the first half of 2016.
