Sonam Kapoor and Dhanush are all set to turn younger! No, the time machine hasn’t been discovered yet; the actors will play17-year-olds in their upcoming Bollywood movie Raanjhnaa.
Raanjhnaa is a romantic movie, and Sonam Kapoor and Dhanush will be playing young lovers for a section in the film! Apparently, earlier, director Anand L Rai wanted to cast younger actors for this part! However, hunting for faces and body features that match Sonam Kapoor and Dhanush’s proved a hindrance and that is when the actors themselves suggested that they can play their younger selves!
Director Anand L Rai welcomed the suggestion and said in a recent interview that Sonam and Dhanush are so much into their characters that portraying 17-year-olds would be a cakewalk for them!
Speaking about the actual age of the actors, while Dhanush is 29, Sonam Kapoor is just 26! Well, we are sure playing 17-year-olds should not be a problem for them! After all, if Aamir Khan can play a college lad at the age of about 40 in 3 Idiots, Sonam and Dhanush are comparatively much younger!
What do you think? Will Sonam and Dhanush be able to pull it off on screen? Do sound off in comments!
