If the name Soundarya Sharma doesn’t ring a bell, then perhaps her film Ranchi Diaries will. The actress, who’s just two films old, was last seen in the aforementioned critically acclaimed drama that released last year, but hasn’t signed any new Bollywood project since then. Well, we now know why. It’s because Soundarya has been roped in for the Wonder Woman 1984 – the sequel to the smash hit Wonder Woman, which, coincidentally, had also released last year.
Apparently, Soundarya auditioned for and bagged Wonder Woman 1984 soon after completing Ranchi Diaries. As per reports, her character would be of Asian descent, and the role is quite prominent, with Soundarya sharing more than a few scenes with Gal Gadot – the star of the film. The same reports also claim that as per her contract, Soundarya was required to not take on any other film during the shooting of Wonder Woman 1984. Well, we bet she didn’t mind that part one bit.
Kudos to you, Soundarya Sharma! Here’s looking forward to seeing you alongside Gal Gadot in Wonder Woman 1984.
