Sonam Kapoor in Arbaaz Khan's next!

Sonam Kapoor, who is currently busy shooting for her home production Khoobsurat, has signed for Arbaaz Khan's next venture.

After his hit Dabangg 2, Arbaaz Khan is focusing on expanding his home banner, Arbaaz Khan Productions. For his upcoming woman-centric flick, the producer-actor has signed on fashion diva Sonam Kapoor to play the lead in the film. The film is named Dolly Ki Doli, which will be directed by debutant Abhishek Dogra, who had previously assisted R Balki during Paa.

Sonam will be seen playing the titular role of Dolly, a spunky North Indian girl in the film. There are three more significant characters that will be cast soon. Dolly Ki Doli is expected to go on floors in January 2014 and will be shot across the Northern heartland.

Arbaaz confirmed the news saying, "We wanted a girl who can do justice to the character. I'm happy to have Sonam onboard. When we narrated the script to her, she admitted that she could instantly identify with Dolly."

Arbaaz said the film is a quirky drama with a strong comedy element added to it. "It is one aspect of Sonam's personality, which hasn't been explored. If all goes well, we will be ready for release by the end of next year," he concluded.

Sonam Kapoor was last seen opposite co-star Dhanush in Anand L Rai's Raanjhanaa.
