Shah Rukh Khan and Sonam Kapoor on-screen Chemistry in Aditya Chopra’s ‘Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi’

Shah Rukh Khan and Sonam Kapoor are going to working together in Aditya Chopra’s next directorial Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi. After eight years of gap from direction, Aditya is back behind the camera with this movie. The movie is based on the love story between a 40 year old man and a 16 year old girl. Aditya Chopa will produce the movie from the script of himself.

So, it is almost certain that the movie is going to be much awaited movie of this year. Concidering the story of the movie, Aditya was interested to launch a new girl of 16 years of age opposite Shah Rukh Khan. Looking for a tall, fair Punjabi girl with theatric abilities, Aditya Chopra auditioned hundreds of girls from Punjab, but could not find the perfect girl to rope in for the movie. It was then when he thought about Sonam Kapoor and he spoke to Sonam’s father Anil Kapoor regarding signing Sonam for the movie.

Apunka Choice reported:

Without even reading the film’s script, Shah Rukh Khan agreed to be its leading man. And a search was going on for a suitable actress opposite king Khan.

Reportedly, Aditya Chopra, who has also written the film’s script, wanted a Punjabi girl, someone who is tall, fair and good-looking. Auditions of many girls were carried out but none fitted the bill.
It took a while before Adi reportedly realized that Sonam Kapoor was the girl he was looking for.

Aditya Chopra has asked his friend Karan Johar to give him the schedule of Shah Rukh Khan for the movie Khan, which is being directed by Karan Johar, so that Aditya can star the shooting of Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi in May.

Sonam Kapoor debuted though Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s high profile movie Saawariya in 2007. She was definitely lucky to have debuted under the direction of someone like Sanjay. The actress could prove her acting talent in the movie, though the movie failed to live up to the expectation in the box office. The Bollywood damsel is currently working for Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s next film Delhi 6. It is certainly a big chance for Sonam Kapoor to bring about a breakthrough in her acting career. Let us see if she could successfully show her acting talent in the movie.
