This is probably the most exciting news you’ll hear all day!

Sonakshi Sinha has been finalised as the main lead opposite John Abraham in Abhinay Deo’sForce 2. The film is a sequel to the popular 2011 Vipul Shah film Force which also starred John Abraham alongside Vidyut Jamwal and Genelia D’Souza. We are yet to find out if Vidyut will also feature in the sequel. While the first film was directed by Nishikant Kamat the sequel is being helmed by Abhinay Deo. Earlier, Katrina Kaif‘s name as the lead opposite John was doing the rounds but Kat shot down those reports at an event confirming that she is not doing the film.

Force went on to be one of the most successful action films of 2011 and the makers have decided to make the sequel even more high-octane. This is the first time Sona and John have been paired opposite each other and it would be rather interesting to watch their chemistry on screen.

Jr Shotgun will be seen doing a lot of action sequences in her upcoming film Akira so we are hoping to see some of her action spill over to Force 2 as well! The film is likely to go on floors in September this year and sources suggest that the makers are aiming for a release in the first half of 2016. We really like the fresh pairing of John and Sonakshi in the film, what about you?
