Mumbai, April 28, 2013 (Washington Bangla Radio): After Kolaveri Di, Dhanush is in the limelight yet again essaying the role of a Benarasi lad in Eros International’s Raanjhanaa directed by Aanand L Rai.

Sources say, “Benaras is a corner of the country where Dhanush has never been to before, yet he managed to deliver an outstanding performance of a stereotypical Benarasi boy".

And while the trailer of the film that viralled out 2 days ago has gone on to become one of the most popular trailers this year, striking a chord across a wide spectrum of the audience, the actor who is currently shooting remains unfazed.

Talking about his association with film and his role says Dhanush, "Aanand Rai (director) did not choose me for Kolaveri Di, but for my National Award-winning film Aadukalam. But frankly speaking, I did not have to go through any rigid preparation for the role.”

Talking further about the art of learning the perfect delivery for dialogues such as "Girlfriend na sahi... feel hi dede!", Dhanush said, “Sonam and I met on the set for the first time. Given that I am not well versed with Hindi, she helped me understand so many things during the shoot. It must have been so difficult for her to act with me,” Dhanush insists he dubbed for all his lines. “It was tough but the writer Hemanshu and editor Hemal guided me all the through the pauses and punches.”
