For her role of a schoolgirl in "Raanjhanaa", Sonam Kapoor took inspiration from Jaya Bachchan's popular character in hit movie "Guddi", which too revolved around a schoolgoing teenager.

"I had already seen 'Guddi' but I saw it again before shooting for the film. I was inspired by Jaya Bachchanji in 'Guddi' for the film," Sonam told reporters Friday at the unveiling of director Anand L. Rai's "Raanjhanaa" music here.

Shooting for "Raanjhanaa" was like actualising unfulfilled dreams for the 27-year-old who studied in a "very conservative school" in real life. "I was not allowed to wear short skirts, but with the film I enjoyed a lot. I wore short skirts, had fun with boys and did everything that I couldn't do in my school days," she added.

The film's lead actor Dhanush, who was also at the event, has dubbed himself for his debut Hindi movie.

He said: "I give credit to the director of the film, Anand. He prepared me to play the Banarasi guy. I have dubbed myself for the film. It's a wonderful feeling."

"Raanjhanaa" is slated for a June 21 release.
