Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Dobara, which released on August 15 has not been doing so well with the audiences. However, this Milan Luthria movie does have a pleasant surprise for us when Vidya Balan appears on screen.
None of the moviegoers even had a vague idea that they would see Vidya Balan in OUATIMD. The filmmakers have maintained this secret all along to surprise the audience. In the song titled 'Tayyab Ali' where Imran Khan is seen giving us some good jhatkas, Vidya appears on screen wearing a burkha. The actress is seen watching the dance from her balcony window.
This cameo role of Vidya lasts only for a few seconds. She is gone by the time the audience digests this vidya-surprise. Vidya Balan has worked with Milan Luthria earlier in The Dirty Picture and she did not hesitate to make this appearance. Although Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Dobara is entirely Akshay Kumar centric, everyone is tapping their feet to the song 'Tayyab Ali' sung by Javed Bashir.
OUATIMD also brings to us Sonali Bendre and Sophie Choudry in cameo roles. There is even a short intimate scene between Akshay Kumar and Sophie. On the other side, we have Sonali as Mumtaz in the film.
