Once Upon Ay Time In Mumbai Dobaara! is the story of an underworld don, Shohaib (Akshay Kumar), who killed his mentor in the past (Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai) to gain supremacy and is now the ruling mafia king. It is an upcoming Bollywood crime gangster film directed by Milan Luthria and produced by Ekta Kapoor and Shobha Kapoor. A sequel to the 2010 film Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai, the film will feature Akshay Kumar, Sonakshi Sinha and Imran Khan in leading roles and Sonali Bendre in a supporting role.
The film, on the other hand is expected to be released on the Independence Day, 15 August 2013. The release date of the film was pushed further by the producers to avoid clashing with Rohit Shetty’s film Chennai Express, which released on 9 August 2013. This is the third collaboration between Akshay Kumar and Sonakshi Sinha as a pair (after 2012 films Rowdy Rathore and Joker), and the first between Sonakshi Sinha and Imran Khan.
