The first media event of upcoming film, Raanjhanaa, is sure to give its guests a feel of Benares. The makers have created an entire set resembling Benares at Film City in Goregaon, where the event is scheduled to take place on May 10. Since the Sonam Kapoor-Dhanush starrer has been shot in Benares, the makers wanted to create a set similar to that of their film’s location for the event.

“Our idea behind creating a rustic set was to engage the audience in a pure local Benares experience,” says Aanand Rai, the director of Raanjhanaa.

The event will see Sonam and Dhanush entering in a chariot, followed by a dance performance on the title track of the film. There will also be performances by Dhanush and Sonam.

“The audience are in for a huge surprise. This will be one of the most desi (Indian) entries of all time,” adds the director.

The makers believe that the Benares set will create a direct connect with the audience. “We wanted to do something that represented the essence of the film and its setting, hence the idea of having an event in true Benaresi style came about. We want the audience to experience the real flavour of the film and return home with it,” says producer Krishika Lulla.
