Dhanush and Aishwarya camp in Varanasi

Dhanush and wife Aishwarya will spend the next 40 days in Varanasi. And no, it’s not a pilgrimage

The National Award-winning actor and wife have camped in the temple town to shoot for Dhanush’s Hindi film Raanjhana.Directed by Anand L Rai of Tanu Weds Manu, Raanjhana is touted as a romantic musical in which Dhanush is playing a college student from Eastern Uttar Pradesh. Sonam Kapoor is playing his love interest in the film.

“The film is set against the backdrop of Varanasi and hence a lengthy schedule has been planned there. During breaks, Dhanush will visit temples in the locality,” sources say. Music for Raanjhana is by AR Rahman. The film is being made simultaneously in Tamil too. Back home in Kollywood, Dhanush will soon start Sottavalakutty to be directed by Sargunam.
