Mallika to play lead role in Qurbani remake

Mallika Sherawat, Bollyood's hottest babe and the only one with a shot at measuring up to Zeenat Aman's oomph factor, will play the female lead as Sheela in the Qurbani remake, reports Mid Day.
The remake, like the 1980 original, is being produced and directed by Feroze Khan.
However, this time Feroze Khan will not play the lead role of the suave thief Rajesh. Instead he will step into the shoes of the eccentric inspector Amjad Khan, played by late Amjad Khan.
The lead role in the film has gone to Feroze Khan's son, Fardeen Khan. A hunt is on for an actor to play Vinod Khana's role of Amar. It was offered to Saif Ali Khan but he declined citing date problems.
According to Bollywood's rumor mill Saif turned down the role because Fardeen Khan was playing the lead. Later, in a tit-for-tat retaliation Fardeen walked out of Abbas-Mustan Race which has Saif playing a lead role.
Mallika has already consented to the role that was earlier offered to Priyanka Chopra. Feroze Khan is expected to make a formal announcement in a few days and filming will start shortly thereafter.
A source close to Khan says, "Mallika will be signing the film in a few days, but she has already given her consent.”
