Rajeev Masand's column in Open magazine shares some interesting facts about Rani Mukerji's Aiyya and her marriage.Read on

Ho hum... there’s talk again that Rani Mukherjee and Aditya Chopra are all set to tie the knot shortly. The actress, who rang in her birthday recently in London, where Aditya is supervising the shoot of his father Yash Chopra’s new film, is said to have settled in comfortably with his family, after incessant rumours that Yash and Pam Chopra were not thrilled about the match. Some weeks ago, the actress was spotted at Mumbai airport, returning from a foreign holiday with the entire Chopra clan, and last Diwali, the paparazzi managed to shoot pictures of Rani and the Chopras lighting firecrackers in the compound of their Juhu bungalow.

The actress, however, has stayed mum on the matter, flatly refusing to speak publicly about her relationship with the Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge director. A source, meanwhile, reveals that Aditya Chopra advised her last year not to turn down an edgy Anurag Kashyap-produced project titled Aiyya that she’d been offered but was unsure about.

The film, apparently, is a comedy that winks at the over-the-top Bollywood cinema of the 1980s and 1990s, where Rani is paired opposite Malayalam star Prithviraj. Cast as a middle-class Marathi girl with a tendency to behave theatrically, Rani has apparently surpassed the expectations of the film’s makers, who can’t stop praising her performance. The highlight, they insist, is a naughty song packed with double entendre lyrics that will be filmed on the actress.

    Anyone who is “unsure” -quoting the from the article- about accepting an Anurag K project has a big minus in my book (perhaps I’m biased being an Kashyap fan, so it’s understandable that I have a strong opinion about the subject), especially if that person made a bunch of crappy YRF movies in the recent past, and their filmography is dominated by cheap Hollywood remakes = rip offs a la Bollywood, Karan Johar melodramas and only dispersedly peppered with original movies like Yuva, NOKJ, Saathiya, MP, Paheli. I think I was quite the nice lady in asserting that, IMO, Rani’s big shot producer bf is guiding her career, because I could have easily said that she has poor instinct in choosing quality projects, or worse, that she lacks completely … Whatever the case, I don’t think I err too much, considering that a huge chunk of her movies were made by her producer bf.

    WOW! She needed convincing from her other half to accept an Anurag Kashyap movie offer?? Anurag K, the guy who wrote Water’s dialogue, and made the cult hits No Smoking, Black Friday, Dev D and TGiYB? Oh God! She also almost rejected Black (granted, that was a semi-plagiarized material), but she happily did movies like Thoda Pyar Magic, Tum Rum Pum and Hadippa, or whatever their titles are? In what universe can she be considered remotely intelligent or astute in choosing scripts, when all she did in recent years, until NOKJ that is, were Yash Chopra low-brow movies which almost sank her career? Now in retrospective, I’m amazed that she did a movie like NOKJ, and I wonder if her bf advised her to do that, too, after giving her a string of not quite such quality movies ... It seems to me that her man is guiding her career...pity.

    Anyway, I hope this movie will turn out to be good. Prithviraj was quite sexy/charming in Raavanan… All the best to this production.

    YOU ARE GREAT ..........I AGREE 1000%.....
    EVEN IN HER INTERVIEWS SHE IS NOT SO SMART TALENTED BUT SHE IS NOT AN ARTIST

    what is wrong about asking you're boyfriend to help you?after dil bole hadippa rani came out from yash raj camp.adi advised rani to do anurag's film.that means he is really into her job.for who said rani refused to do black.yes she did.beacuse she always said that role was a big role.she never thought that is a great role so i'll do it.at first she thought if she could manage it or not.that means she always want to do her best.rani is always star of her film even the film was flop.succesfull movies don't make a super star.being a good performer makes.anurag wait for rani near 4 mounts.some actresses who are popular these days never can imagine this offer even in their dreams.

    Doing 2 movies in a year and 1 endorsement is what you call a great career.

    "I don't think she was NOT interested in doing this movie, but it's always better to get a second thoughts, opinions, whats and ifs from the people you love and trust the most.. so nothing's wrong if she asked a respected director Aditya chopra about signing this movie. Even I would ask my father, brother or a husband for their input.. It shows respect hun :)"

    I couldn't have said it any better!! Bravo. Love Rani and hope she always does her best.

    @ femalequixote... Yar highs or lows are part of life, that's why it's called a growing process.. Rani was always praised acting wise even when her movies were duds at the BO. So give her a break, she is trying hard not to let down the audience or her fans but she is a human after all who learns from a mistake so don't fret about it. I make mistakes every day, you do the same or how else we become careful? So let's not pressurize someone too much. Thank you for listening :)

    Vidya is a copycat. She copies Rani too much.

    OK, that was hilarious, you blind delusional fan! I like rani's acting too, but claiming out of jealousy that vidya copies her is nothing but utter stupidity!

    The next Sri and Boney.
    What's gonna happen to this world??
    What kind of values these parents( especially Rani teach to her kids) will instill in their kids.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    LOL and what will you teach your kids? That your mom/dad sat on their asses all day on PV commenting on other peoples life, hence he/she is pretty useless and a bum now? Rani kids might learn a thing or two from her, but your kids will turn out to be the Internet obsessed trolls/stalkers like you if you won't stop now.

    What values are you preaching us about here? Aditya was already separated from his wife, when Rani came to his life.. You can't forcefully drag a marriage when it's already crumbled to pieces. Not healthy for either wife or the husband. Better to move on and live a stress free life. That's what all three Rani, Aditya, Payal seems to be doing.. Living a normal life.. Sheesh you dumb people!

    LovePconly... Rani is not Priyanka chopra whose claim of fame is surgeries or opening her legs to SRK, HW songs writers and Producers etc.. Rani is a power of talent, she doesn't need any source or begging for work. If your English is good dear, the article clearly says that Aditya suggested her to go for it even though she wasn't too keen to do it. He didn't go to director's office with a fruit/flower basket to beg the role for Rani.. and Rani's career is perfectly fine, you shouldn't be losing your weight over it.. lmao you troll

    She is to talented that it's mind boggling to see her not signing the movies and letting her talent go to waste.. You know how people are praising Vidya now days, well Vidya came later in the picture, perhaps following Rani's every moves from acting to styling to even looking like her.. Rani is the original deal, the Queen, the superstar.. She has so many followers around the world, but why does she do that, I don't get it.. She should do more movies and expand her talent.

    Mon, 2012-04-09 14:37 — lovePConly Lol what a joke...Rani was a star even before she met Aditya Chopra and does not need him to get offers...she is a multi faceted star....unlike the one-note acting of a Priyanka Chopra who was linked with the married co-star of her very first film and her track record continues...now who needs a man to get roles, eh?

    Rani is known to be selective over her movie choices, but she needs to let go and start broadening her horizons. She's far too uptight about signing movies I think. I'm glad he persuaded her to do Aiyya because it sounds so amazing.

    May be adi uses his influence to offer this movie to rani otherwise her career is also not going too well..
