This was not news we were expecting to hear. Considering the bad blood between Abhay Deol and Sonam Kapoor post Aisha, we never thought we'd see them together on screen again.

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.
