    Director of Raanjhnaa Anand L Rai has proved his skills earlier with a hit like Tanu Weds Manu.

Actor Sonam Kapoor feels lucky that maestro A R Rahman has composed music for two of her films - Delhi 6 and Raanjhnaa. It was in Rakesh Omprakash Mehra's directorial venture Delhi 6 that Rahman churned out a song Masakali which featured Sonam. The song became so famous that people started calling Sonam the 'Masakali' girl.

"It was because of Rahman's magical music that  'Masakali' became a rage and people associated me with that one song. He adds life to everything. He is a genius and a very modest person. I feel privileged and blessed that he has given music to two of my films," says Sonam who has completed filming Raanjhnaa that also stars southern actor Dhanush and Abhay Deol.

In fact, Dhanush, who has sung the hugely popular song Kolavari Di, also couldn't stop talking about Rahman. "He gives melodious music which people can never forget," he says.

Sonam is quite happy to share screen space with Dhanush (who is married to Rajinikanth's daughter Aishwarya) in the film which marks his debut in Bollywood. "For me Dhanush is the Raanjhnaa. No one can be like him. He is innocent and sweet," she smiles.

Even Sonam's actor father Anil Kapoor was all praise for Dhanush, after seeing the promo of the film, she says. "My dad was just talking about Dhanush, and saying how good he is in the film, how he has acted and etc. When I asked him about me, he said you are also good and again started talking about Dhanush," she shares.

Sonam even went on to say that in real life too, she would love to have someone like Dhanush in her life.

"I think there are no good boys in Bombay...I think I will have to go to Tamil Nadu to find a guy for myself," she chuckles. Showing off her romantic side, she says, "Everytime I fall in love I feel like it's the first time. I have had no successful love story yet. I hope I will succeed next time when I fall in love," she said.
