Sonu Sood confesses that he was so eager to work with filmmaker Ramesh Taurani that he gave his nod for Ramaiya Vasta Vaiya without even reading the script.
The film which is a launch pad for Taurani’s son Girish Kumar, is produced by Tips Industries Ltd banner. Shruti Haasan plays the female lead in it. “I was in Canada when I got a call for the film and without even reading the script, I immediately said, ‘Yes, I will definitely do it’,” the 40-year-old said here in an interview.
“This is because when I came to Mumbai 10 years ago, I met Rameshji (Taurani) and asked him, ‘When will I get a film?’ And he said, ‘Very soon.’ But it took him 10 years to take me (in a movie),” Sonu added, who has also been signed by Taurani for an Akshay Kumar-starrer. In Ramaiya Vasta Vaiya, directed by Prabhudeva, set for July 19 release, Sonu plays Shruti’s strict brother.
