The ever-so-stylish Sonam and Kolaveri di-fame star Dhanush team up for Anand Rai’s upcoming film Raanjhana
Tanu weds Manu director Anand Rai is now all set with an epic love story against the backdrop of Varanasi and Mathura in Uttar Pradesh for his next outing, called Raanjhana. The film will see Dhanush playing the lead as a schoolboy. The scrawny actor has had to shed weight to look like a skinny teenager growing up in Varanasi. The 29-year-old actor is also taking lessons in English diction.
And guess what? The average-looking actor from the South will be paired up with the style diva of Bollywood, Sonam Kapoor. The Kapoor gal will be seen playing a small town girl with big dreams in this romantic saga. The story of Raanjhana revolves around a young Sonam who completes her schooling and finds her wings in the politically charged atmosphere of the university.
We know that Sonam has played a small town girl before in Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s Delhi-6, opposite Abhishek Bachchan. But for this one Sonam needs to de-glam her popular image for which she has has been attending acting workshops conducted by well-known Delhi theatre person Arvind Gaur. Will Sonam recreate the magic of Masakali once again?
