Several scenes in Raanjhanaa required Sonam Kapoor to play a cheeky school girl and apparently she took her inspiration from Jaya Bachchan’s character in Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s Guddi for the part!
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 in Guddi for the film”.
Sonam had a blast shooting these scenes btw, since in real life she studied in a very conservative school she never got to wear short skirts, be boisterous or have fun with the boys. So it must have been fun to get to do it now!
