Bollywood’s ‘Babli’ Rani Mukerji started her career in B-town with her first film ‘Raja Ki Aayegi Baaraat’. From then on she was simply invincible! From ‘Veer Zaara’ to ‘Chalte Chalte’, the actress has given us some scintillating performances. Saathiya movie was one of them. However, there is a very funny incident that happened to the actress in the film and it also includes Yash Chopra!
Watch to find out what happened to the ‘Bunty Aur Babli’ fame and why it involves B-town’s most famous directors.
So, we know that Rani Mukerji is an outstanding and very successful actress, but there was a time when she had no work for eight months after her film ‘Mujhse Dosti Karogi’ did very well at the box office. So, when Saathiya came in her way, she needed to put in a lot of effort to get the film accepted and thus director Yash Chopra asked her to say yes to the film! Well, she did it in a quite unique way by involving her parents.
In a throwback interview with News18, Rani Mukerji took a trip down her memory lane when Yash Chopra convinced her to do the film, Rani revealed, “A lot of film critics and magazines wrote to me And he said ‘His career is over’ and I was fine with it. I was thinking maybe he was right but I’m not going to give up. I’m going to do something that my heart believes in. Then Luckily Saathiya came along and I remember Yash’s (Chopra) uncle calling my parents in the office.”
The ‘Paheli’ actress further shared that Yash had explained to her that she was making a big mistake by rejecting the film and locked her in a room until her parents said yes to the film.
“My parents went to tell Yash uncle that ‘Rani is not interested in this film’. He called me and said, ‘Son, you are making a big mistake. I am locking the door of my room. And I’m not going to let your parents out unless you say yes to the film. And I thank them for that.” Queen said.
Well, this is how we got the versatile actress Saathiya Queen In this!
