Rani Mukherji is gearing up for the release of her upcoming movie Aiyya. She is playing a Marathi girl lost in her Bollywood fantasy world. It seems like Rani is doing great on women-centric roles. However, would she do a 'The Dirty Picture' or Heroine ever?

"Frankly, no" says Rani, in an interview to Times of India. " I cannot see myself doing a The Dirty Picture or Heroine. Both these films revolve around the film industry. When I am playing a character that is based in the film industry, I would want to project things the way I have seen them. Even when Zoya Akhtar offered me Luck By Chance, I refused because of the same reason. I have a certain perception of the film industry and I would like the film I'm doing to be within that. Also there is a tendency to sensationalize films that are based on our industry. Our industry isn't just about controversy and sensationalism. There is also hard work, focus and dedication. I know no one wants to see this side of the industry because it is very boring. But I would someday like to do a film keeping this other side in mind. Coming back to TDP, Vidya Balan was brilliant in it and I know Kareena will rock it with Heroine. "

It seems like Rani has only good experiences in the film industry and does not even want to portray anything bad about it. Nice to see such loyalty, Rani, and we're sure Aiyya will rock it too!

Comments

you mean no one would offer them to you......

you just did

She wouldn't suit the role of Heroine or Dirty Picture due to her physicality and face! These type of roles are not meant for Rani. She is a good actress, but she cannot pull all characters.

As a Rani fan, I think it isn't good on her part to refuse any challenging role. She should have the guts to take on any role, be it TDP or any other..

I get what you are saying about the 'glam quotient' bit but doesn't it all come down to packaging and styling? I mean if Kareena was in her Hal Chal/Milenge Milenge mode right now she wouldn't have looked the part for Heroine either. Rani was pretty chic and glam in Hum Tum and Chalte Chalte because she was styled that way, I'm sure if the packaging was right she would've looked the part for Heroine as well. DBH, Laaga Chunri Mein Daag, and Tara Rum Pum were terrible films and anyone in those would've looked bad, still she managed to rise above the bad script/direction and thats the kind of actor she is

Blaming poor styling is not answer to Rani's limited capabilities. Rani did those movies with Yash Raj Banner which has Manish Malhotra /other top stylists. Her roles in Hum Tum and Chalte Chalte and also Sathiya were girl next door , which she can portray well, not of a hot seductive glam babe (a role that she can't) . While Kareena can look simple (Bodygurad ) and sexy (Heroine ) at the same time . It is not just the clothes/style. It is your aura/body language/ and how you carry it and Rani doesn't have that glam diva attitude which Kareena/Ash can carry with aplomb.

That is not being able to play Kareena role. Rani also cannot play Ash role in Jodha Akbar, Devdas, HDDCS. She wasn't good/ didn't portray her role well when trying to play period characters ( Rajasthani village girl ) in Paheli, or a Bhatiya Naari (bahurani) in Babul. And Ash and Kareena are high comparisons/versatile actresses, lets come to the newbies : Deepika Padukone . Can you imagine Rani able to play the free spirited, girl who doesn't shy off 1 night stands : the types Deepi portrayed in Cocktail? Or the action/revenge seeking girl ( PC in Don?)

I do agree Rani is a good actress though, and she has done some memorable performances (Black, veer zaara). But you need to understand : like one nut/bolt can't be fitted into every machine, one actress cannot fit into every role. Using language like which UNIVERSE EXISTS that Rani can't do something which Kareena can is really lame , insulting to other actress and senseless.

I and you dont know each other, but I can certainly be good at something which you can't and you can certainly do something which I cant. Its as simple as that.

rani can do any film

rani is the best

obviously she wouldn't....when she has to live it everysingle day in the REAL life!!both TDP and heroine has plot where actresses sleep with famous successful men for their own success...to be no.1!!!lol..she has done it in real life why bother faking it!!!pffffff..........these actresses!!!

But I think she can carry any role easily. I completely trust and respect her verstality.

Of course, she has to say this. She is going to marry Aditya Chopra and wouldn't want to say things which could have a negative impact on Yashraj or Aditya. And people would even think that she got the roles only because of her affair with Adi. Rani is very clever and knows exactly well how to "sell" herself, what to say in public so that everybody loves her. Whenever I see an interview with her, I feel that she is not honest and tries to be everybody darling. I also don't like her acting skills. She only got good roles because of Adi. Black was a very good role and all of the other top actresses would have played it much better. Ever since she named Adolf Hitler as her idol, she showed her real face anyways.

she seems to think those roles are not good enough for her LOL and her fans think she answered positively

Kareena fans have Heroine to look forward to, PC fans have Barfi, and Vidya fans have Ghanchakar, so everyone just calm down and breathe. I love all three of these ladies so I'd watch all of these movies!

Rani is still being offered plenty of roles but declining them. She said no to Daayan, which then went to Vidya Balan ;)

--
Sorry to break the news to you but Rani isnt being offered plenty of roles..she was great in her prime but umm nope..she is no longer in demand!

I really don't know why people are reading this the wrong way. Shes not saying that she wouldn't do a film like TDP or Heroine because they are 'bold', she says they project an image of the industry which she doesn't agree with. She was asked that question, she didn't bring up these movies herself. Its a very valid point but I don't agree with it because I think as an actor she should be open to all sorts of roles and movies regardless of what her personal opinions are on the matter. Rani's talent is time-tested and genre tested, she wasn't a flavor of the season and her body of work proves that. As someone who immensely enjoys her work on-screen, I feel a bit sad that someone with all that talent and versatility isn't the best decision-maker when it comes to choosing roles and films, however I'm glad shes back with two films in two different genres, and I can't wait to watch them.

I can't imagine a universe in which Kareena can pull off a role Rani can't.

Rani cannot pull of glamorous roles, a "Poo" type role, or a Dhoom 2 type sexy babe role, or a Fashion type role. She doesn't have the height/glam quotient for it. She tried her best to tone her body/look sexy in songs of DBH and playing high profile sexy call girl in Laaga Chunri Mei Daag, and a sexy New Yorker in first half of Tara Rum Pum . But she failed miserably in all of these.
Rani , Vidya, Kareena , Ash ,Tabu, Pranka all are good actors, but everyone has their own limitations. No-one is versatile in all genres of cinema.
The only actress who can do comedy, tragedy, romance, simple bhartiya naari role as well as villain/negative character is only and only Sreedevi.

I AGREE.....

She was asked a question, and she answered. She also complimented Kareena and Vidya, but those people who don't like Rani will choose to ignore that part of her answer.

Rani is still being offered plenty of roles but declining them. She said no to Daayan, which then went to Vidya Balan ;)

Aiyaa will rock! When is it releasing?

Rani is a very good actress but this statement makes her sound bitter and insecure ...Sorry that's a fact.. and I don't think she is in a position today to pick and choose the best of roles... she was never offered Dirty Picture and in case of Heroine, I have heard her trying very hard to bag tht role after Ash left!

Rani and v got vidya got limted acting skills, they are only good in certain type of roles, kareena is verstile and can do all type of roles.

thank god she gave a good reason... :)

Yes thanks for the advice anon I did take the blinkers off & guess what???????? I still cannot see any actress replacing Rani "Effing" Mukherjee in Black except.......Rani Mukherjee herself. And especially not Priyanka Chopra thank God!!I've never understood the hype about her as an actress save Fashion & Kaminey,what with her constant "look I'm acting" expression on her face. Vidya Balan I agree could have done an equally gr8 job but not as good as Rani. Similarly Rani couldn't have done justice to the role of Silk as good as Vidya did in TDP.How you can call Rani in Black "farcial" is beyond me.but it doesn't take.rocket science to figure out that you're a hater.So thanks even after taking off those shades(I'm glad I did,I was feeling too hot),I still.find Rani as kickass than ever.

Well, its her opinion....good to know you want to show good side of bollywood....but the glam part is also reality....so till you get ur choice of movie, i would love to see you in these kinda roles as well.

@PizzaPasta I can't wait to comment as soon as PV publishes it.

so now pinkvillaboy says rani doesnt have aura like kareena ??? lol ,i dunno what to say.....u enjoy taking a dip in ur ignorance ,don't u???? since when, a media created starlet like kareena is touted to have an aura as much as sridevi or madhuri has?? if rani cant pull of a heroine then kareena cant pull of a hum tum ,black or even kuch kuch hota hai. I guess u dunno ,some one called michelle williams in hollywood did a movie on the legendary marilyn monroe.

Fair dos - to be honest, I can't see her playing the role of Silk in TDP or Mahi Arora in Heroine.

LOL! Says the woman who did bold roles in the movie KANK and Laga Chunari Mein Daag to name a few... Get over yourself Rani.

...and you did not :}

Aww its okay @Voicewriter I already made the post:-) I was just kidding its okay if you reveal the names,not like something serious happened.And I agree we've been thinking alike for a few days:-)

@PizzaPasta lol sorry. I dunno why we've been thinking alike lately. Please go ahead and make your post, I'm sure I didn't reveal everybody. :-)

wanted to make a post* Not wanted to making.Sorry:-)

"After KKHH, I only remember Rani in C grade movies. She had went on to put on lot of weight and few movie roles she used to get probably didnt pay her much, so she couldnt afford a stylist or stylish outfit."
She put on weight? She was nowhere near as heavy as Sonakshi or Vidya is now. Rani put on a tiny bit of weight but was still petite. Stop making up lies when the proof is everywhere. LOL @ she probably didn't get paid much. Compared to who? Who was the leading actress then? Of course she won't have got paid as much as the top heroines. Bare in mind that she did a LOT of movies after KKHH. She was very much in demand.

"I remember hearing about her having an affair with VERY MARRIED Govinda."
Yeah, you heard about it so it must be true.

"It wasnt until, Aditya lost his shirt(he had already lost his pants- he he--, can anyone imagine Aditya naked, Ewwwww)"
Comments like that show what an immature person you really are. If you're gonna make a valid point about something, do it like a grown up and don't throw in stupid insults. Makes you look stupid.

"And today if Rani is successful, thats because of Aditya ONLY. I guess anyone can ROBE A BANK AND BECOME A MILLIONAIRE. Isnt that what Rani did, she robbed Payal from her love of Greed and Success."
So if it's all down to Aditya, why hasn't he made all his heroines superstars? Or his brother Uday? As someone below said, Aditya may well have created a star, but there is no way he can create an ACTOR. She was born with that talent.
Anyway, I think I'm gonna go ROBE a bank. Now, where's my bathrobe?

Hey @Voicewriter ,no fair:-( I wanted to making a post on this topic & maybe you'll see it by tomorrow & you already revealed the names:-(( But I don't agree with all your choices & I have a few more to add but you'll see that in my post:-) So no worries:-)

yeah because you hardly get roles these days, forget about prime roles like TDP or Heroine

"Similarly Rani in Black was strong on the outside & vulnerable inside as a deaf,blind,mute girl & its difficult to portray a disabled person without being OTT & yet getting the audience's sympathy & then again I can't see any other actress even Vidya pulling it off with conviction."

@pizzapasta: nonsense...vidya could easily have done it, as could priyanka...they are both very capable actresses...rani's mute act was rather farcical at times. please take your blinkers off!

@That Girl Daily : you are a daily torture, trust me!

grapes are sour ....eh rani?

There are certain roles which only certain actresses are born to play. These are their career defining films & roles & any other actress however good or bad she might be cannot replace them. Rani,Vidya & Kareena are all powerhouse actresses who've one performance that remains their landmark & in which neither one can play the other.Contrary to what some people say Vidya's role in TDP isn't child's play or 'overrated'. It takes a woman with balls to put on 10kg of weight,letting paunch slide from your belly while wearing low cut cleavage bearing dresses,mouthing shocking outrageous dialogues & sleeping around with men. But more so its extremely tough to portray an 80s sex symbol with relish & aplomb without being sleazy or vulgar,& Vidya did just that & I truly cannot see any other actress having the guts or the talent to pull off that role. Similarly Rani in Black was strong on the outside & vulnerable inside as a deaf,blind,mute girl & its difficult to portray a disabled person without being OTT & yet getting the audience's sympathy & then again I can't see any other actress even Vidya pulling it off with conviction. Similarly Kareena's career best is JWM,PC's Fashion,Ash's HDDCS,etc,.,roles in which u cannot absolutely imagine anybody else. I don't think she was taking a dig at either Heroine or TDP,Rani knows ber own space & knows the kind of roles she can do and she can't. Being versatile isn't the biggest achievement in the world. Unless you excel in each & every role you cannot be called versatile. Rani & Vidya might not fit into the space of being glamorous divas but I highly doubt that any other actress however versatile she might be,can carry out films like Black & TDP the way they did(even though I love Bebo she's not as gr8 as them).

Rani (in her mind) *Milan Luthria & Madhur Bhandarkar have got to sign me for the next films* Lol ..
Love you Rani, but this is kinda pathetic...

She needs to turn director and make her own film about the industry.

Rani is Rani. She can very well do films like Heroine or TDP. Why not? She is talented and beautiful Rani. She can carry it off. She just replied in this way, to not seem like she wants to compete - it's to give the actresses their own space. It was the polite and proper thing to say. There is no role on earth Rani cannot play successfully.

I'm not even Rani's fan but comeon people, she is not being mean here nor it seems sour grapes. Actor of her caliber doesn't need cheap tricks to be in the news to promote movie such way, she was asked this question and she replied to it how she felt it. She did compliment Vidya and Kareena as well so why are we fussing over something so small and meaningless. Be positive folks!

why this lowlife ( Mon, 2012-09-10 19:45 — Anonymous) keep posting and saying the same stuff over and over again? That was Rani's opinion and she shared it after being asked this question, as if you haters have no say in anything or don't have ur opinion what so ever. You are making up stories, and BSing as if you were there and know every single details about Rani's past and who she has dated etc. I feel bad for you for having a miserable childhood you had because i havent seen anyone as bitter as you in my entire life.. LMAO

She never says she was offered the films ! She's answering a question and if she didn't then everyone would have something to say too ! Ultimately I don't think Rani had bad experiances in the industry having a filmy background, talent, charm and of course luck ! She's answering the question through her own personal experiances ! She quite simply wouldn't be able to identify with the characters in the mentioned films because she and her career are far removed from what these films depicted. If an actor cannot identify with their character their performance will lack sincerity and that is one thing Rani's performances have NEVER lacked. She has been selective in her roles with good reason, she does what she knows she can do well. And as far as a one Mr Chopra goes, he didn't make her an actor as someone mentioned below that was her own sheer talent that is evident from her very first 'Raja Ki Aayegi Baarat' and that we'll no doubt see again soon in 'Aaiyaa.'

Angur Khatte...aur kya?

Rani is a damn fine actress, and to say she couldn't have pulled DTP or heroine is a joke. She can act in any movie, but if the interest is not there, she won't do it. Period

Saathiya, Black, Bunty aur Babli, Yuva (her segment with Abhishek got the most critical acclaim), Hum Tum are just a few films she didn't do with the Khans which got critical/commercial success.
She played second lead to Kajol in her third film (KKHH) and did a cameo in K3G. She played the lead in KANK while Priety played the lead in Veer-Zara so that evens it out.
You might not like Rani which is perfectly fine, and you might even irrationally hate her, which is also perfectly fine but if you are commenting on this subject you might want to not make up facts regarding her body of work.

I can't argue with you because I don't know the things you do, apparently you are well versed in the personal affairs of the Chopras, I don't even know who Payal is. I said her success was due to her talent, a 'godfather' can make you star perhaps but can't make you an actor, Rani is an actor.

Agree with you Rani, especially now when you are going to be married in such a Reputable Chopra Family.
It sure would tarnish Yash Raj and Pam Chopras Slate Clean Image.

She cannot see herself? She wasn't even ASKED to do those films! Only an Aish or Kareena would suit a role like Heroine! The general age old perception of a heroine is someone who is BEAUTIFUL and you know kinda perfect! Rani is very very very lucky to get the break she got in the first place with her height, complexion, voice and freckles! Mind you I think she is talented and I like her but she isn't the typical heroine one thinks of. Had it been the 80s where dusky actresses were finally making a mark like a Smita Patil, Deepti Naval, Rani would have been relegated to play roles in Artsy movies. And Dirty Picture, after seeing the movie one can see how perfectly Vidya essayed the role. Can't imagine anybody else doing this role.

Ooops, digging her own grave.
Should have kept your mouth shut.

So much for promoting Aiyaaa

Aiyaaaa

How bout Woman of Substance Rani ji.

Rani how bout HOME WRECKER- you have seen plenty of that in Bolywood.
Hema, Sri, Smita, Jaya P-

No, she's not taking a dig at Heroine or TDP. Genuinely it takes a special of actress (like Vidya) who has the guts to gain weight and then show it off in skimpy outfits. VB got balls. Also she wouldn't do a film like Heroine that would show things like an actress sleeping around with married men, that would backfire on her image big time.

TDP maybe
HEROINE not really.

If Rani is trying to claim that Film industry doesn't have its shades of grey, then she is an idiot. If she has never had to face something like that, then she is lucky and should be thankful to God but that does not mean others haven't. Plus, as an actor you should be ready to play any role if the script of the film is good enough for you. In hollywood, A-listers vie for roles like these which kind of represent a slice of real life regardless of whether it shows dark/bright side or life/the industry in general. When will bollywood actresses grow out of these petty issues, only God knows. Here actresses are ready to play just a bimbo who tags along with the hero of the film and dances sexily, clothed in the most nasty way possible but chickens out when you have to be bold in order to tell a real life story. SHAME.

Reply to mystic rose- you got to be kidding or fooling yourself.
After KKHH, I only remember Rani in C grade movies. She had went on to put on lot of weight and few movie roles she used to get probably didnt pay her much, so she couldnt afford a stylist or stylish outfit.
I remember hearing about her having an affair with VERY MARRIED Govinda.
Years later when I saw MSDK, produced by Aditya, to my surprise I saw Rani in the lead role opposite Hirthik, where Kareena played a supporting role. No one heard about Rani-Aditya then, or should I say, I didnt.
Then 3-4 years later, there were stories making the rounds Aditya divorcing his wife, and Rani was constantly linked with him.
During this time Rani was chosen for most movies made by Aditya.
It wasnt until, Aditya lost his shirt(he had already lost his pants- he he--, can anyone imagine Aditya naked, Ewwwww)
he stopped signing Rani. So here is the proof-Rani is no longer make it as a Main Heroine in a commercial movie, and her playing hide and seek game with media and her fans, her dishonesty, her atitude(similar to PC, just because a married man had an affair with them, and in Adis case left his wife for Rani, these women think they must be Gods greatest gift, little doez she know what goes around comes around. And no wonder she wants to continue to act, I guess want to keep an eye on Adi, she knows most of heroines will do anything to climb the ladder of success.
And who knows When Next Aditya will fall in love with Anuksha, Kat, or Perinetti---
And today if Rani is successful, thats because of Aditya ONLY. I guess anyone can ROBE A BANK AND BECOME A MILLIONAIRE. Isnt that what Rani did, she robbed Payal from her love of Greed and Success.

I cant imagine her doing Heroine to be honest she doesnt have that aura that kareena has!!!! she doesnt even have the body to carry that role!!! I know she is very talented but you need to have body to portray some character perfectly!!!

You nailed it Anglicious.....

@Pinkvilla_boy:
LOL, of course. For you Kareena is the BEST, we get it dude. In fact you can't even compare Kareena with a high class actress like Rani Mukherjee or Vidya Balan, Sridevi and so on. And to be honest Rani has definitely a more beautiful face than her. You can show pics of both to people out there in the world. 80% at least would pick Rani for sure. However that's not the point. I like bebo the most from the current actresses and she's the one I like to watch despite having a real unconventional face to get used to. She has talent and the x factor which is needed. And it's sad that probably some childish fans will attack Kareena cause of fans like you who pull eveyone down who doesn't praise her once. Here even I can't see nothing against here. In fact this lady loves nearly everything about Kareena. Kareena doesn't deserve hater comments for this reasons. So if you love here then grow up. I don't want to read anything bad about Bebo because you can't behave like an adult.

well Rani, not like you are getting roles flung at you...

We can't either... lol

Maybe Rani got films due to Aditya later on in her career. But the beginning of her career with KKHH and Ghulam, she worked her butt off. I don't think we should take away credit for all the work she's done; especially with films like Black, Hey Ram, Saathiya, NOKJ, Bunty Aur Bubli, Hum Tum, and Yuva, which were all different roles.

However, I don't think she should've commented on this question. It makes TDP and Heroine seem like they're not good enough. And TDP was an amazing movie. I'm sure Heroine will be too.

Thanks for being honest. Because, we (audience) can't see YOU doing TDP & Heroine!

I think she answered it really well. Each to it's own!

she was offered TDP first but she refused to do it!

Sorry rani first of all they didn't offer you these two movie and u have no choice to say any better .
You also won't look good in these two movie period.
-----------------------------

She was asked a question and she chose to answer it. It's not like she is asking to be asked about those films. Besides, I think she answered positively. Frankly, if I was in her place, having set a benchmark in acting and winning accolades for powerful performances, I would be annoyed being asked about a newly released film and another one that has not even been released as though they set the standard for female oriented roles.

Oh Puhleeease!! Gimme a break!

@Pinkvilla Boy

Kareena is your favourite so you have put her name on the top for doing such kind of roles....but frankly speaking this kind of roles would have been best suited for Priyanka Chopra. Kareena tries really hard to be sexy whereas PC has natural sexy looks and attitude!

@Pinkvilla_boy
I can't imagine a universe in which Kareena can pull off a role Rani can't. She can act circles around ANY bollywood actress working currently, Kareena is very good, even great when she is in her element but in no way is she better than Rani. I understand your sentiments as a Kareena fan but I'm sure even Kareena would agree. Rani needs better decision making skills and a competent PR team and a publicist.

If Aditya Chopra couldn't make a proper star (or even 1/3 of a star) out his very own brother (Uday) I doubt he'd create any miracles for Rani. Her success was purely due to her talent and the stump in her career was due to the decision she'd made, get over your fixation with her personal life because she doesn't even talk about or admit it.

of course she's taking a dig (albeit very subtly). she is obviously jealous of kareena and especially vidya, coz she feels like she's taking her place but on a much bigger scale. vidya has had massive solo success in women centric films, which is a rare feat in this day and age. even at her prime, rani was playing second fiddle to other actresses, e.g kajol, priety, or the leading men, e.g srk, aamir, salman, amitabh etc. she has never had a film centred solely around her, so it's simply sour grapes. coz they are the most in demand right now and getting all the good roles, while rani is doing obscure films which no-one is interested in (aiyya), or interested in for other, bigger stars (talaash - aamir, kareena).

Grapes are sour

don't worry dear...it's not like anyone's queuing up to sign you up for such roles now is it?!

She's not taking a dig at the films. She was asked a direct question by the interviewer, and she is answering it. I don't know whether Rani would have done the films or not had she been offered those films.
Rani may not have too many films signed, and she may not be at her box office prime, but she is actually still pretty selective. She turned down Daayan with Emraan (to my dismay), and that film was a Vishal Bhardwaj-Ekta Kapoor co-production with one of the country's top leading men. She seems to have her own set of criteria for picking films that I may not understand, but I don't think she's putting either Kareena or Vidya down. Her reason in this case is pretty well-articulated, even though I may not agree with it.

Well of course she dosn't want to do these movies. She's a clever girl, with Aditya having a major influence. Doing movies which sheds light on what actually happens in the industry. It would ruin the illusion for public and she does not want to be associated with that. The movie Fashion is a prime example of what actually goes on in the fashion industry. Priyanka a model in real life portrayed this as wel in the movie. Quite frankly,it's not very pleasant! The darker side to anything that's all glitz and glamour. Nobody wants to see that, but it has been portrayed. Same now with TDP, and Heroine. Good for Rani, to choose her roles more carefully.

With the sort of boy friends Rani, Katrina etc have, what difficulties or bad experiences will they see in Bollywood.
Rani also comes from a film family.

she is clearly taking a dig at both the films. Heroine is yet to release but if we take a movie like TDP or Fashion directors DID show the hard work and dedication of respective characters in these movies. And honestly speaking she is kinda right when she says "I cannot see myself doing a The Dirty Picture or Heroine. " i can see her doing a role like TDP up to some extent but as for Heroine NAAA i don't think Rani can carry this role the only actress other than Kareena who can pull of a role of a modern Heroine with this aura around her is Aishwarya or may be Sri Devi at her prime.

Love Rani. Can't wait to see her again.

Mystic Rose - When you have Aditya Chopra to guide you , you don't need a manager .. If she would have bagged these roles, she would have def taken them except for Luck By Chance when she was actually in demand.

Sounds more like a case of sour grapes... If I remember this correctly, after Ash left heroine , Rani was lobbying very hard to get the role .. so I highly doubt she was against it..and why would you be against it in the first place? Of all the things that she could take a stand for , she chooses this ? How about taking a stand for violence depicted on mentally challenged woman in Black?

Sorry rani first of all they didn't offer you these two movie and u have no choice to say any better .
You also won't look good in these two movie period.

grapes are sour...

"It seems like Rani has only good experiences in the film industry..." Ummm not really. It's a well known fact that Rani is a chain smoker and smokes a lot. That is why her voice is so deep and raspy. She might also have done some drugs early into her career. And everyone knows about her affair with her director Aditya who was married at the time.

I get what shes trying to say but as an actor she shouldn't let her personal feelings on a subject affect her judgment on which films to take. I hope she gets a manager (or agent, publicist, whatever they are) who guides her towards good roles with good directors because she doesn't always choose the right project for her. I didn't know she was offered Luck by Chance, someone should cast Rani and Farhan together ASAP!

obviously she had no bad experience...parents from film industry....boyfriend owns the top highly successful production house....who would dare to take panga with her....
