She Has A History Of Working With South Indian Actors
She further added, "I really liked him in that movie and I have a history of working with South Indian actors. Dhanush was launched with Raanjhanaa, so I think I work well with them.
Sonam Is Yet To Start Prepping For The Film
"I haven't started prepping with Dulquer. It's starting in August so I am looking forward to working with him. We will start in August or September," Sonam quipped.
