Sonakshi Sinha will next be seen in Shilpi Dasgupta directorial ‘Khandaani Shafakhana’. In the film, Sona will be sharing the screen space with Varun Sharma, Annu Kapoor and rapper Badshah. The film was also supposed to star ‘Kasautii Zindagii Kay 2’ actor and television heartthrob Parth Samthaan. However, he turned down the offer. Wondering why? Well, then read on to know the reason.

According to a report in Pinkvilla, Parth was offered the part of Sonakshi’s lover in ‘Khandaani Shafakhana’. However, the screen time of this character was minimal and hence, Parth refused the offer.

Parth’s popularity is immense thanks to his portrayal of the character Anurag Basu in ‘Kasautii Zindagii Kay’ reboot. So naturally, why would he take up a small role? Perhaps when the film and length of his role are right, Parth would take the big leap and enter Bollywood.

Currently, Parth is in Switzerland to shoot for an important part in his show.

Coming back to ‘Khandaani Shafakhana’, the film is a comedy-drama bankrolled by T-Series, Mahaveer Jain and Mrighdeep Singh Lamba.

The film was earlier scheduled to hit the screens on July 26 alongside Kangana Ranaut‘s ‘Mental Hai Kya’. However, the makers have decided to push it further. So now, it will be releasing on August 2.
