A strange coincidence has led to a change in the name of Sonakshi Sinha’s character in the upcoming movie Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Dobara.
The film has Sonakshi playing a budding actress who gets into a torrid affair with an underworld don, played by Akshay Kumar. Now, since Akshay Kumar’s character is said to be based on Dawood Ibrahim, it’s being rumoured that Sonakshi’s character Yasmeen is modeled on the former actress Mandakini.
Though the makers Balaji Motion Pictures denied that Sonakshi’s character is based on Mandakini’s, they were stunned to learn that Yasmeen Joseph was Mandakini’s real name. The same name in Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Dobara for Sonakshi’s character would inevitably lead people to make comparisons.
Therefore, to ward off controversy, the makers have decided to change Sonakshi’s name in the film from Yasmeen to Jasmeen.
The scenes that have Sonakshi Sinha’s character referred to by her name would now be dubbed again to incorporate the change in the name.
Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Dobara is slated to release on August 15. The film’s plot revolves around a love triangle between Akshay Kumar, Sonakshi Sinha and Imran Khan.
