But that is exactly what will happen soon, with Abhay Deol joining the cast of Raanjhnaa that has Sonam and Dhanush in the lead roles.
"They [Abhay and Sonam] behaved like two mature artistes," said director Anand Rai. "They looked at their roles, not at their past history. I see a very special chemistry happening between them in Raanjhnaa."
Abhay will play an articulate and soft spoken JNU student, who has a relationship with Sonam's character.
Meanwhile, shooting of Raanjhnaa has been delayed by a month because Dhanush wants to take the extra time to better his Hindi diction. With Abhay on board, the actor doesn't want to stumble with dialogues.
