Last year, Sonam Kapoor had collaborated with author Anuja Chauhan and bought the rights of some of her works in order to adapt them as films. Being an avid reader, Battle of Bittora was Sonam Kapoor's first choice for an on screen adaptation and she even announced that a film on it is on the cards.
Now that she has found the royal prince in the form of Pakistani actor Fawad Afzal Khan (Khoobsurat
), we hear that the actor will once again be paired with Anil Kapoor's daughter in this film. As mentioned before, Fawad Khan will be seen in the role of a politician belonging to a royal family named Zain Altaf while Sonam Kapoor will play the role of Sarojini Pandey. Set against the backdrop of election campaigns, Battle of Bittora is a passionate love story where rivals fall in love. Jinni, a young and independent girl working to fulfill her dreams at an animation studio, suddenly gets entangled in a web of politics, after her dominating grandmother drags her off the simple life to contest the Lok Sabha elections from Bittora.
The film in question will be produced by Rhea Kapoor under the banner Anil Kapoor Productions.
Sonam Kapoor is currently busy with the shooting of Sooraj Barjatya's Prem Ratan Dhan Payo where she plays a wealthy princess opposite Salman Khan.
