Director Prabhu Deva has already been working with actor Sonu Sood in Kumar Taurani's Ramaiya Vastavaiya. Looks like the actor has impressed Prabhu Deva so much that he has been cast in his forthcoming project, Namak, alongside Shahid Kapoor and Sonakshi Sinha.
The film is set to go on floors next year and Sonu is set to play the antagonist of the film. Apparently, it was during the shooting of Taurani's film in Pune when Prabhu Deva discussed the role with Sonu, following which the latter agreed.
The director is more than happy to have a sincere actor like Sonu around, claims a source.
