Sanya Malhotra bags a dance film – Sanya Malhotra, who is best known for playing the role of Babita Phoghat in Bollywood’s highest grosser Dangal (2016), is steadily making inroads into the Hindi film industry. Her on-screen elder sister and bestie, Fatima Sana Shaikh, has already bagged Thugs Of Hindostan opposite Aamir. Now, Sanya, too, has an eclectic mix of movies lined up for release. Apart from Ritesh Batra’s Photograph (in which she will share screen space with Nawazuddin Siddiqui), Vishal Bhardwaj’s Pataakha where she is warring with Radhika Madan and Badhai Ho opposite Ayushmann Khurrana, the curly-haired actress has bagged yet another project.
Our source says, “Sanya has just been confirmed for a dance film, which will be directed by Bosco Martis, who is one of the leading choreographers of Bollywood. It is likely to go on floors later this year.” Bosco along with Caesar (Gonsalves) has choreographed over 200 songs in 75 films including biggies like Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara (2011), Student Of The Year (2012), Gunday (2014), Raees, Jab Harry Met Sejal and Badrinath Ki Dulhania (all of which released in 2017).
For a while now, the petite actress, who is a trained dancer and a choreographer, has been talking about wanting to act in a dance movie. Guess this is where it was leading to. We contacted Sanya’s team but they remained unavailable for comment.
