Anand Rai, director of upcoming film Raanjhnaa, said that he did not sense any discomfort between Abhay Deol and Sonam Kapoor while filming the project.
Director Anand L. Rai has captured the essence of Benaras in this trailer of his film Raanjhnaa.
The relationship between Abhay and Sonam reportedly went sour during the making of Aisha, after the actor had publicly expressed displeasure with the way the film was being made. The film was produced by Sonam's father Anil Kapoor.
"Even I had heard about all this. Sonam liked the film and she came on board. Then I told the story to Abhay. He liked his part and agreed to do the film. There were no issues at all between Sonam and Abhay. I did not feel any cold vibes between both of them while shooting for the film," Rai told PTI in an interview here.
Besides Abhay and Sonam, the film also stars Kolaveri Di famed actor-singer Dhanush, who is making his Bollywood debut through the project.
The Tanu Weds Manu director said he wanted actors who could play ordinary characters on-screen.
"When I finished the story, I was sure I need somebody who is simple and ordinary, it was not about the looks. I needed that small town feel inside them and not on their faces. I felt we needed someone like Dhanush and Sonam," Rai said.
