Choreographer-turned-director Bosco Martis (of Bosco-Caesar) and his upcoming film, Circus, had a revolving door of possible lead actresses in the last few years. Kangana Ranaut was considered for the role and later, Parineeti Chopra was confirmed to star as the lead as of last year. Now comes word that Sonakshi Sinha will step into the role of a trapeze artist in the film.
Actor Suniel Shetty is also part of Martis’s project as a former circus performer who will play Sinha’s father. He told Mumbai Mirror tabloid that Circus is “an ambitious, intense story with a larger-than-life set-up. I’m looking forward to filming with Sonakshi.”
The cast is expected to go through extensive training and workshops to look like experienced circus performers on screen. Circus should also have a strong dance angle to it, seeing Bosco Martis’s background as a choreographer since 1994. The first schedule of the film is due to start next month in the US.
