Mumbai, June 23 (IANS) New York-based Indian actor Ankur Bhatia, who played Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's husband in "Sarbjit", has now been signed to play Shraddha Kapoor's husband in Apoorva Lakhia's "Hasina".
Interestingly, both the films are real life stories. While "Sarbjit" was the story of Dalbir Kaur, the elder sister of Sarabjit Singh who fought a long legal battle for the release of her brother from a Pakistani jail, "Hasina" is the story of Hasina Parkar, sister of Dawood Ibrahim.
Talking about his role, Ankur said: "I am super-excited to work with Shraddha as I think she's an immensely talented actress. I've been longing to work with Apoorva Lakhia and I'm so glad he gave me the opportunity."
"I play a tall Pathan character who is filled with joie de vivre. I am really excited to play this part," added Ankur.
