The pretty schoolgirl with pigtails and in flowery frock you see above is indeed Sonam Kapoor. The actress seems to have turned back the hand of clock to look unbelievably young in the film Raanjhnaa with south star Dhanush.
Since the film by director Anand L. Rai is a romantic drama that spans a long time in the lives of two lovers, Sonam and Dhanush turned into 17-year-old school going teens for a portion in the film. The earlier plan was to rope in young actors to play the parts, but director Anand L. Rai couldn’t find suitable faces to match Sonam and Dhanush’s.
It was then that Dhanush and Sonam Kapoor suggested that they should portray their younger versions themselves. And what a transformation it turned out to be. The ‘Kolaveri Di’ star shaved off his stubble and Sonam went on a special diet to look her younger self.
Director Rai was so convinced by their transformation that he said, “When they play 17-year olds no one would be looking at the two actors' real ages.”
