New Delhi, Oct 15 (IANS) Actress Sonam Kapoor, who is shooting for her upcoming film "Raanjhnaa" in Banaras, was mesmerised by the famous "Ganga aarti".

The 27-year-old was suggested by many to watch the evening ritual and hence the actress hired a boat to see the "aarti" from a distance.

"Sonam had a lovely ride on the boat and to see thousands of people doing the 'aarti' was something she had never experienced before," a source said.

The actress is enjoying the beauty of one of the oldest cities in the country.

"Raanjhnaa" marks the debut of southern star Dhanush in Hindi films and is directed by Anand L. Rai.
