Dancer and actor Nora Fatehi has been roped in to play the role of a spy in Ajay Devgn starrer Bhuj: The Pride of India.

Earlier, Parnieeti Chopra had opted out of Abishek Dudhaiya’s film due to her schedule with the Saina biopic and an upcoming mystery-thriller reported Mumbai Mirror.

Now, Nora Fatehi will play the part in the Bhushan Kumar, Ginny Khanuja, Vajir Singh and Kumar Mangat Pathak production.

“She came on board recently and has started attending workshops for her role with the director, also focussing on getting the body language of a spy right. She will start shooting after January 12, as part of the war -drama’s 15-day last schedule,” a source close to the film told Mirror.

Bhuj: The Pride of India is set against the backdrop of the 1972 Indo-Pak war.

In the film, Ajay will be seen playing the character of Squadron leader, Vijay Karnik, who was in charge of the Bhuj airbase despite receiving heavy bombarding from Pakistan.

300 local women from the Kutch district helped him rebuild the destructed airstrip.

Bhuj will also feature Sonakshi Sinha as social worker Sunderben, Sanjay Dutt as Ranchordas, a local, Rana Daggubati as a Lieutenant Colonel and Ammy Virk as a pilot.

Earlier, the filmmaker had released Ajay’s first look from the upcoming film.
