"Rhea would be making her Bollywood debut with Mere Dad Ki Maruti. Even though she has a three film contract with Yash Raj, she is free to work in outside productions. The one which she has consented to is Sonali Cable", informs a source.
The film is about a cable centre run by a girl named Sonali. Though the title indicates a comic film in the offering, something which is also the genre of Rhea's Mere Dad Ki Maruti, there would be fair deal of intense scenes as well in Sonali Cable.
"Incidentally this is also a woman centric film which is in sharp contrast to Rohan's Nautanki Saala!, Dum Maaro Dum, Bluffmaster, each of which has been a male dominated affair. When Charudutt Acharya came with an idea for Sonali Cable, Rohan was simply bowled over and immediately consented to backing it. He had heard good things about Rhea who has also been a popular model. Since her contract with Yash Raj was non-exclusive, there was no difficulty in roping her in either", the source adds.
The film is expected to go on floors around the same time (April) when Rohan releases his Ayushmann Khurrana and Kunaal Roy Kapur starrer Nautanki Saala!
