While several scenes in Raanjhanaa required actress Sonam Kapoor to essay the character of a school girl, the actress admits to taking inspiration from Jaya Bachchan’s character in Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s Guddi.
Confirms Sonam Kapoor, “I needed a reference point for my character…a naughty spunky school girl, I had already seen Guddi but I saw it again before shooting for the film. I was inspired by Jaya Bachchanji in Guddi for the film”.
It was also a dream come true for Sonam to be shooting for these scenes especially since it was something she never did during her schooling days.
Says Sonam, “ I studied at a very conservative school..I was not allowed to wear short skirts or be boisterous or have fun with the boys but through the course of this film I did everything that I couldn’t do in my school days.”
With music composed by A.R Rahman, Eros International’s Raanjhanaa directed by Aanand L Rai, starring Dhanush, Sonam Kapoor and Abhay Deol is scheduled to release in UK cinemas on 21st June 2013.
