Once Upon a Time in Mumbai Dobaara! (abbreviated as OUATIMD and previously known as Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Again), is an upcoming 2013 Indian crime gangster film directed by Milan Luthria and produced by Ekta Kapoor and Shobha Kapoor. A sequel to the 2010 film Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai, the film will feature Akshay Kumar, Sonakshi Sinha and Imran Khan in leading roles and Sonali Bendre in a supporting role.
The first trailer of the film was released on 28th May 2013. The film, on the other hand is expected to be released on the Independence Day, 15th August, 2013. The release date of the film was pushed further by the producers to avoid clashing with Rohit Shetty's upcoming film Chennai Express which is releasing one week earlier.
