“The writer, Himanshu Sharma writes very catchy dialogues. The trailer tells you all about it and dare I say, the dialogues are very local in taste. I loved speaking them. Like, ‘Ek thappad marungi toh saari rangbaazi nikal jaegi ek minute mein (One slap will put you in your place)’,” the 28-year-old said here in an interview Sunday.
“You rarely get to mouth such dialogues and I enjoyed the ‘dialogue-baazi’ in the film,” she added.
Sonam plays Zoya in the film, and her character’s growth is shown since she is a 15-year-old teenager to when she grows up to be 26.
The actress admits she was nervous about playing a 15-year-old girl, but says the crowd present at the shoot helped her do it confidently.
“I was a bit nervous about going out in a uniform with hair tied into two plaits and (I used to wonder) how people would react to it and how will I perform in front of so many people.
“(On the) First day we gave two shots and the audience there started clapping and shouting. So that raised my confidence. I was nervous about playing a 15-year-old girl, but once I got the dialogues, it was easy for me to do,” Sonam said.
Directed by Anand L. Rai, “Raanjhanaa” also stars southern star Dhanush. The film is releasing Friday.
