Monday, June 24, 2013 • Hindi Comments

Prevention is better than cure - goes the saying and the makers of ‘Once Upon a Time in Mumbai Dobaara’ literally felt keen to follow this popular proverb about being safe. In forthcoming Balaji’s ‘Once Upon a Time in Mumbai Dobaara’, Sonakshi Sinha essays the role of Yasmeen, Shoaib’s (Akshay Kumar) love interest.

However according to the latest development, Sona’s screen name has been changed to Jasmeen. So the story goes that a well-wisher informed the film’s makers that Yasmeen Joseph happens to be yesteryear’s actress, Mandakini’s name in real life. The makers, who were oblivious to this factoid, were stunned at the coincidence.

As the love story of this doe-eyed beauty with a notorious Don is no secret, the makers have decided to change Sonakshi’s screen name from Yasmeen to Jasmeen and are re-dubbing the relevant portions in the film. No one wants unwanted controversies after all! Also starring Imran Khan in lead, ‘Once Upon a Time in Mumbai Dobaara’ is slated to release on August 15th.
