In director’s Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s film, Jaya Bachchan played a spunky and carefree schoolgirl. Whereas, in Raanjhnaa, Sonam plays a middle-class college student from Varanasi. “Jaya Bachchan’s classic performance in Guddi inspired me. It was perfect for the character I was going to portray and I saw it over and over again,” says Sonam.
Sonam is paired opposite south actor Dhanush, popularly known for his song ‘Kolaveri di’. He plays a carefree youngster. Produced by Krishika Lulla, Raanjhnaa is a romantic flick where Dhanush’s character undergoes a drastic change after he meets Sonam’s character. The film is slated to hit theatres on June 28.
