Abhay Deol and Sonam Kapoor seem to have buried the hatchet and are teaming up once again in Tanu Weds Manu director Anand L Rai’s next. Abhay is doing a small but significant role in the film, which marks the Bollywood debut of the South star Rajnikanth’s son-in-law and Kolavari D singer-actor, Dhanush.
The youngest Deol and the Kapoor girl had a fall-out during the shoot of Sonam’s home venture, Aisha. Reportedly, Abhay was not too happy with the way his role and the film had turned out. He was even quoted saying some unflattering things about Sonam’s dad Anil Kapoor.
The actress didn’t take it lightly and reacted strongly against him. After their initial outburst, both the actors later claimed all was well between them and that they were open to working together again.
A source from the film reveals, “Abhay and Sonam are very professional actors. They won’t let personal differences come in the way of their professional lives. Both share mutual respect for each other as actors. When the director told Sonam that he was considering Abhay for the role, she was more than happy. Abhay is also comfortable working with Sonam again.”
Without divulging much on their roles, the source informs that both the actors will share screen space in the film. “All I can say is that they will come face to face and their chemistry is amazing in the scene,” the source reveals.
The source goes on to add, “Abhay took it up because it’s a beautiful role and he loved it.” The film, which is going on floor by the end of May, will be shot in Benaras.
