Dhanush to debut with Sonam Kapoor
South superstar Dhanush is all set to make his Bollywood debut with the film 'Raanjhnaa'. Dhanush's entry in B-Town was in news at the start of this year, while everyone was wondering who the leading lady would be.
It has been recently disclosed that Dhanush will be playing Sonam's 'Raanjhnaa' in the film. Yes, that's right! Sonam Kapoor will be pairing opposite Dhanush in this film which is directed by Anand L.Rai of 'Tanu Weds Manu' fame.
Anand said he chose Dhanush for his simplicity."For the past six months, I've been looking for a simple boy to play the lead in 'Raanjhnaa'. My requirement was a man who could look vulnerable on screen. When I saw Dhanush in the Tamil film 'Aadukalam'. I liked him immediately. He looks very ordinary and honest, and that was the demand of the character," Rai said in a press statement.
Dhanush, who is iconic hero Rajinikanth's son-in-law, is not too well versed with Hindi. But it won't be a barrier for his Bollywood career as he is keen to explore the industry and learn the local language and culture. The actor is also perhaps planning to hire a coach to learn Hindi. He is convinced that by the time the film's shoot gets over, he will be able to communicate fluently in Hindi, which will open more avenues for him.
