Ac­tor Richa Chadha (left) has signed on to star in di­rec­tor Omung Ku­mar’s up­com­ing biopic on Sarab­jit Singh, who was con­victed of spy­ing by a Pak­istani court. The film sees Aish­warya Rai Bachchan and Ran­deep Hooda (right) in lead roles.

In the film, Aish­warya will play Sarab­jit’s sis­ter, Dal­bir Kaur, who fought for her brother’s re­lease from the Lahore jail but her quest ended trag­i­cally when he died in 2013 fol­low­ing a bru­tal at­tack by fel­low pris­on­ers.

Richa, who is rid­ing high on the suc­cess of Masaan, will play Sarab­jit’s wife in the film based on the In­dian who died in the Pak­istani jail. “Yes, they have ap­proached me and I will be do­ing it. How­ever, at this point of time, pa­per work is be­ing done and I can’t com­ment any­thing more. I have been of­fered the role to play Ran­deep’s wife and I will sign on the dot­ted lines soon. It is an in­ter­est­ing role and can’t wait to talk more on the same,” Richa says. This will be her sec­ond film op­po­site Hooda. The two will be seen to­gether in up­com­ing film on Charles Sobhraj, also a biopic.
