2013 release Aanand L Rai’s Raanjhanaa is special in many ways. The film was South star Dhanush’s big Bollywood debut. While the film received a huge appreciation at that time, it is still fresh in everyone’s mind. Sonam Kapoor Ahuja’s acting and performance were also top-notch in the film.
Sonam’s transformation from an innocent teenager to an ambitious young girl was appreciated by the audience.
However, very few know that the actress took inspiration from Jaya Bachchan’s Guddi for her role as a 15-year-old schoolgirl in Raanjhanaa.
Talking about the same, Pinkvilla quoted Sonam, “Zoya is a bubbly and free-spirited girl. It was difficult initially but then I saw Guddi and got inspired by it. Even Jaya Bachchan was in her early 20s when she played the role of Guddi, so I got the energy, spunk and body language of a schoolgirl after watching her film.”
She also revealed about copying veteran actor Waheeda Rehman’s style in the movie. “I have completely copied Waheeda Ji’s performance in Guide in my film Raanjhanaa,” she had added.
It’s been 8 years since the film dropped on the big screen. Since then Raanjhanaa holds a cult following. People still love watching the film and the songs of the film still make it perfect.
