Some Bollywood stars are better actors off-screen than on screen. While promoting a film they’d starred in together, these two actresses swore undying friendship and mutual respect. The film worked at the box-office, and both the industry and audience was impressed with their closeness.

It turns out that this might have all been an act. The senior of the two actresses reportedly breaks into a rash at the very mention of the other actress’ name. She’s not thrilled that the younger star has moved into her territory—strong women-centric films that she was once known for.

At a party recently, the senior actress’ filmmaker boyfriend reportedly taunted her when the deejay played a popular song from the other actress’ blockbuster film. Eyewitnesses standing nearby say they heard some of the most foul language ever to emerge from her mouth in response.

The star apparently went into an abusive tirade against the younger actress, unconcerned that people could hear her frothing at the mouth.

So much pathetic lies in this crap. Rani and Vidya both said whilst promoting NOKJ that they were not friends but liked each other. Aditya Chopra is the biggest recluse on this PLANET, there is no way he is gonna go to any party (he doesn't even give interviews for his own films, forgodake!) and cause a stir. And Rani? A BILLION times more dignified. This is a horrible, nasty item which basically says Aditya loves humiliating Rani and making her feel like crap. Rajeev Masand makes me sick and I have lost all respect for him. This is late, I know, but PV post this please

"Winning an award means nothing nowadays" ROFL! look who's talking? Looks like someone is suffering from acute amnesia, so allow me to jog your memory. You were the one who was constantly gloating about Rani's undeserving awards for NOKJ(which was no doubt purchased by her sugar daddy Aditya chopra) and you even made an entire thread dedicated to her FilmFarce awards http://www.pinkvilla.com/entertainmenttags/rani-mukerji/rani-makes-histo...

Seriously MakeupCritic, you are one fickle minded person who keeps changing your stance whenever its convenient for you. and wait a second lady, were you smoking dope when you wrote her acting is always raved about? Ok let me refresh your screwed up memory again. Please go and rewatch all the bad films your idol Rani with her ex lover Govinda along with other 'gems' like Mehndi, Bichoo, Badal,Nayak,MDK,Badal,Bas Itna Sa Khwaab Hai and etc etc. Phew! The critics panned those films along with her so called 'supremely talented' acting skills in those films.

and please Missy, whats so bloody special about Aiiyaa? she is basically reprising the same old loud OTT crazy woman like she did in films like Bunty aur Bali and Hadippa and all she will do is act like a moron and make funny face sin the name of comedy.

and yet you have the nerve to call Vidya a typecast? take off the biased glasses woman.. Vidya has so far played a grieving sister(Sabrina Lall), a doomed sex symbol in TDP, a single mother struggling with her son's progeria in Paa and a double agent in the recent Kahaani.. plus she is also doing comedy in the upcoming Ghanchakkar.. now if this isn't variety, then I dont know what is... But since you are one biased fan of Rani, you will never view things objectively

and did you see Rani in Talaash? one again she is playing the gloomy deglam auntyji in that film.
OMG!! YOU'VE NAILED IT TO THE CORE

Those people calling us Rani fans "biased" should take a good hard look at themselves. Rani has done the whole gamut of roles available to a Hindi actress, glam to de-glam, light roles to serious roles. Vidya's "unbiased" fans can't look beyond their dislike of Rani to see that in every which way Rani is the superior of the two!
Rani "gloomy, deglam, auntiji"? No, you are mistaking Rani for Vidya who is that in real and reel life!

I agree totally, Rani Fans should not see her as an angel. She is just very clever and says that she doesn't know why people have a problem with her, etc. Like dissing Preity although Preity is always very nice to her. I think that Ash is right to expect from a friend to be informed by her when she has been replaced in a movie. But of course Chalte Chalte was a big chance for Rani and thus, she didn't care about the friendship with Ash at all. I find it a bit weird to afterwards say that she doesn't know why Ash is not talking to her. I found it also a bit strange when Karan asked Kareena whether Rani and she are friends and Kareena replied no. Then Rani interfered and said, say that we are friends. There one can see how unfrank she is and how honest Kareena is.

First of all, what have awards got to do with ANYTHING? Winning an award means nothing nowadays. Come on, that's hardly a valid point to back an argument. So, you think that Rani is only limited to one type of role? What the hell are YOU smoking? Look back at Ranis filmography. She has been in the industry longer than Vidya and is still approached for hard hitting scripts.

She wasn't savaged after NOKJ. The thing with Rani is, no matter how bad the movie is, or how bad the script is, her acting is always raved about.

If anyone is typecast, it's Vidya. When Vidya proves herself by doing a full on comedy movie, a full on romantic movie, and manages to gain acclaim in more than 3 movies, that's when she will be compared to Rani.
Until then, Vidya is stuck in the same type of movies, and will never make it as a commercial AND critically acclaimed heroine.

Come back to me in 10 years time, and tell me if Vidya is still going strong, still LOOKING good and still has the ability to a movie like Aiyyaa.

Excuse me MakeupCritic? what the hell are you smoking? Vidya has completely SURPASSED Rani and Vidya is also a National Award winning actress unlike Rani who lost her one and only chance with Black when a small time actress like Sarika unexpectedly stole her thunder and THANK GOD for that.

and please! Rani too is a limited actress herself. She can only play the 'earthy,weepy abla naari' type of roles because she always fell flat on her face whenever she stepped out of her comfort zone. She looked ridiculous when she wore the bikini in Hadippa and the critics savaged her OTT performance in NOKJ.

so Vidya has surpassed Rani whether you like it or not

I do think Rani & Vidya were totally putting on the act of being friends whilst promoting NKJ. Therefore I do believe that Rani could be nasty about her because I've heard she has a temper too.

However, Rani is MILES ahead of Vidya in the Bollywood rat race. Vidya has done about 3 good movies, and her acting capablities are limited. She can't step into all the genres at ease, which is something Rani has always done.

Mystic Rose's picture

Agree with @Green!
Rani has done plenty of multistarrers, shes always maintained that she isn't BFFs with Priety but they are always warm towards one another. She seems like an introvert although she has a cheerful personality, and I've never heard of her attending a party with her boyfriend in tow, they are always on the down low. People have a beef with her for the silliest things, because she did a film which had a lot of controversy attached to it (the one in which the male lead was SRK) and because of her relationship with Aditya Chopra. And lets set the record straight on one thing, Rani DOES NOT get films because of Aditya Chopra, if that were true she'd be in every YRF production, she doesn't get films because of her boyfriend any more than Vidya gets it for dating the head honcho at UTV. Shes a hell of an actress and her body of work proves that, if people can't see it than its honestly their loss.

Rani is famous for the gaalis she spews. No wonder the Chopras can't stand her. And why be so vocal about it? Not done. Yeh rangmanch hai Rani. Kal tum thi, aaj Vidya, kal koi aur hoga.

Green's picture

Honestly, I've never heard about Rani badmouthing anyone or losing her temper. Maybe she does it in private, but I myself have not read about it before. In all her KWK episodes (which is her comfort zone I admit), and even other interviews, she always answers questions very safely and doesn't say anything that might jeopardize her image... which is why I call her politically correct. She's worked with Kareena and Preity several times, and there has never been signs of insecurity from any of these girls. She doesn't get along with Kajol, but I've never heard of them fight before; yet, they've still worked together, because they're very professional. I mean, what Rajeev is saying might be true, but I for one just can't picture it. Is it because I'm her fan? Heck yea! Just like you all defend your favorite stars against bad gossip, I will do the same. And that's exactly what these blind items are...gossip.

Rani can't do like this. i dont believe this rumors. She is too sensible person to badmouth anyone. She is confident and secure herself and aditya chopra is camera shy. i dont think he would do something like this . Stop spreading this false rumors. Rani is way better actress than vidya. No comparisons.

Rajeev is always trying to make some derogatory remarks about Rani. As he knows there's no interview coming his way he is trying to malign Rani. There are people out there in the fraternity who can't bear to see Rani back in the lime-light hence these made-up stories, well timed with the release of Aiyya promos.
Had Vidya's promos come out Rajeev would have made glowing comments on his twitter account but because it's Rani, not a mention. That in itself speaks volumes! Wouln't want to help with positive remarks now would we Rajeev!

i never could quite get how rani and preity suddenly became cold potatos... i mean 1 min they were it heroines.. rani atleast had this affair with adi to give her one flop movie a year... poor priety doesnt even have that.

Actually the rumours were that Abhishek's fiance at that time, Aishwarya, flew down to see him and Jaya and made some unsavory comments about Rani and her styling in the movie on the sets. There were no reports of Rani bad-mouthing anyone and the Aishwarya being snarky bit was made up by the media because of the lack of juice they were getting from the Bachchans and Aishwarya regarding the engagement. Rani and Ash might not be the best of friends but both are above putting someone down someone else for the fun of it, atleast in public. Next week there will be another blind item, I'm guessing Priety Zinta would be on the chopping block.

What utter rubbish! For one how many parties does Rain Mukerji attend, very few! Another attempt to slander Rani's career, this industry is full of sharks that can not bare to see another person successful. I doubt Vidya has taken Rani's place as the cinema Rani and Vidya do are very different. Rani is very much a commercial mainstream big banner actress and Vidya isn't. Unless Ranjeev was there, this story is utter trash.

Rani has been around since the 90s. Vidya only became famous in the mid-2000s.

I find it perfectly believable that Rani can break into foul language. What do you people expect her to act prim and proper even off screen ? lol. She's only human PLUS no one can last in the film industry for this long by being a sati-savitri .

But we are missing the big point. I haven't seen Adi Chopra attending any party with Rani where Vidya is also there. OK, so we don't know of all parties. But does anyone really think Aditya Chopra will taunt Vidya Balan. I don't think so. I think this Blind is very confusing to say the least.

Senior is Rani... Vidya started her career just a few years ago... And Rani has done women-centric roles during her career... They both appeared to be friends on KWK show. Also Rani's filmmaker boyfriend is (Aditya Chopra) So obviously according to Rajeev Masand, Rani hates Vidya... Probably the song would be from the Vidya's (dirty picture)

Anonymous's picture

Unless Rajeev was there and heard it with his own mouth then what he say's is hearsay! Someone with a vested interest and a dislike of Rani must be spreading these things just to be malicious. It's not as if Rani is starting her career. She is winding down, so competition from someone like Vidya is unlikely to bother her. It may even be someone who is linked to Vidya who is spreading these things just like when NOKJ was releasing someone was saying that Rani was hogging the lime-light in the promo's when in fact Vidya was busy with her other film TDP.
In fact we all know how partial Rajeev is to Vidya so nothing like trying to put her in a bad light when everyone is raving about Aiyya. Plus I've noticed how Vidya is suddenly out and about just as the promos of Aiyya have started and Rani is back in the lime-light. Coincidence or insecurity on Vidya's part. Rani never "rains on anybody else@s parade"! Vidya will never be another Rani!

Rani & Vidya for 'Nobody killed Jessica'. There were always stories of Rani being overtly competitive with Vidya. Rani was pissed off when Vidya was nominated as 'Best actress ' for the movie while she was relegated to ''Supporting actress ''. They both belong to the same age group & both date powerful industry men. The difference being Vidya is going places & Rani seems stagnating. The song is probably the ''oh la la' song from TDP. It's been ages since Aditya Chopra has been a boy, why call him by the juvenile 'boy friend' instead of 'companion' or 'partner' ?

I agree with you. Vidya and Rani are bollywood's two finest actresses and as soon as they are doing great job onscreen I don't care how much they like each other offscreen... I like Rajeev Masand too as a critic. When any movie is reliesing I read his review first and as usual I agree with his opinion but sometimes writing his blind items and trying to shock readers he is going too far...

Yeah I think every time when any movie is doing lots of buzz Rajeev decides to write one stupid story about the actor who is doing that movie to sell his " Blind" item as hot potatos.... Maybe some of his items are true stories but not here because it's hard to believe that Rani can badmouth anyone in public....

Yes I agree with you'll @Gohar & @Green,these blind articles do pop up at times when some major film is going to release,more as you'll said concerned about publicity than actual gossip. I like Rajeev Masand as a critic & an interviewr but his blind articles are in extremely poor taste. But yeah no doubt the actresses mentioned here are-Vidya & Rani & the film in question-NOKJ. But WTF do I give about what is Vidya & Rani's personal equation behind the camera as long as they're 2 of Bollywood's finest actresses????I would say bring it on baby, bring on more actresses like Vidya & Rani,women who give the word "actress" a better name@@@@
