Actor Sonam Kapoor who plays a school girl in several scenes of her upcoming film Raanjhanaa, admits to taking inspiration from Jaya Bachchan’s character in Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s Guddi (1971). Confirms Sonam Kapoor, “I needed a reference point for my character…a naughty spunky school
girl , I had already seen Guddi but I saw it again before shooting for the film. I was inspired by Jaya Bachchanji as Guddi in the film.”
It was also a dream come true for Sonam to be shooting for these scenes especially since it was something she never did during her schooling days – Says Sonam, “I studied at a very conservative school..I was not allowed to wear short skirts or be boisterous or have fun with the boys but through the course of this film I did everything that I couldn’t do in my school days”.
The film also stars actor Dhanush who sang the popular song Kolaveri Di.
