Rani Signs Paan Singh Tomaar's Directors Next Movie? 0

The latest buzz in Bollywood, is that Paan Singh Tomaars director, Tigmanshu Dhulia has approached Rani Mukerji for his next movie.

After the roaring sucess of Paan Singh Tomaar, Tigmanshu is to make a biopic on the life of Begum Samru. If rumours are to be believed then the role was written as per keeping Rani in mind.

Begum Samru played a critical role in the political struggle in the 18th and 19th century India. She was also the head of a professionally trained Mercenary army, inherited from her European husband Walter Reinhardt Sombre.

Mumbai Mirror reports
"Last week Tigmanshu had a long meeting with Rani at her office in Juhu. She loved the role and agreed in principle,” a source told the tabloid.

The source went on to explain why Rani was zeroed in on for the role. “The role is tailor made for Rani. Tigmanshu wanted someone who can hold the film on her own,” he said."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This news sounds amazing! I really hope Rani agrees and signs on the dotted line!

"rani is overrated.end of."

Rani is overrated by whom? The directors like Mani Ratnam, Tigmangshu , Sanjay Leela Bhansali who approach her....and conceptualize their " babies" i.e. films with her or legends like Shabana Azmi, Gulzar or Shyam Benegal who praise her acting prowess......Who do you think over rate her n hype her just for nothing....? can you please answer this....? Just because she is over rated Ashutosh gowariker approached her for Lagaan and swadesh..isnt it...? Ppl write comments for the heck of it...without even thinking once.....

As if the complexion colour will be an issue. There is a thing called makeup. It can work wonders.

Im so sick of seeing Vidya in every movie these days.... Rani is a much better choice!

rani's strength is her versatility, she can do a bubbly small town girl in Bunty aur Babli, a modern no-nonsense girl in Chalte Chalte and Hum Tum, a mixture of two in Saathiya, and can make you cry in Black. Whether its a multistarrer like KANK and Yuva and or movie based entirely around her, rani's performances always get appreciation and gets attention.
As much as I like Vidya as an actress, she is not as versatile. I don't see her doing a full on love saga like a karan johar or a yash chopra film and I don't see her doing comedy as effortlessly as she does drama. Kismat Connection and Heyy Baby are prime examples of that. Vidya at this point is just the flavour of the month, shes had back to back hits and that gets you in the limelight but for the long haul you either have to branch out in other commercial genres or shift permanently to parallel films.
Rani's movies might have not worked recently but her performances always get appreciated. Vidya Balan can act well in good movies but Rani is one of the few that can rise above a less than stellar script.

"Rani and vidya looks good in women centric only. Priyanka and kareena can carry role whether its for 2 scenes or whole movie. I am sure vidya or rani cant do dostana or jab we met even in her dreams."

Rani cannot do Jab We Met type of role and she is only good in women centric roles? Are you mad? Don't you know of superhit films like Chate Chalte and Bunty Aur Bubli where Rani had cute, bright, romantic roles and did so well? No doubt that Kareena was superb in Jab We Met but Rani is very good in these type of roles too. And Rani cannot do Dostana but there is nothing wrong in that. She doesn't need stupid roles like that where she is just in a movie for skin show and glamour.

Rani is an amazing actress and much better than all the bimbos today like Deepika, Sonam, Nargis and Jaqueline. She is the same calibre as Kareena and I am waiting to see them in Talaash along with another great actor- Aamir.

To reply to the comments made by someone below, Rani is not dark either. She is wheatish and with the help of make up, I'm sure she can pull off a Kashmiri well enough. After all, if Bipasha Basu, Deepika and Prinyanka can look fair in their movies with the help of make up, I'm sure a naturally blended skin toned beauty like Rani can too.

as much as i m the biggest fan of rani... playing begum samru just might not fir it even though she is sort of perfect for it.... even though begum samru was short heighted, which rani suits to a T, she was also kashmiri and fair... the challenge would then lie in making her look kashmiri..... the fieryness comes naturally :P

gr8 news!rani should do this film.

bebo_pclover20's picture

a very prestigious project indeed! so happy for rani - she needs to sign this asap! since when was skin colour a problem in playing a role? it's talent that counts and rani has that. shame on the people who think in such a disgusting way. so now skin colour should define who gets what role? ludicrous - shows how people are so narrow minded.

Must say rani dil bole hadippa, laga chunri mai daag were superb choices.

if rani doesn't do it, it'll probably go to vidya.
the 2 are almost interchangeable now.

I just hope the news is true.....Because the Dhoom 3 story was also floating around sometime back which seems like a complete rumour....n has died a natural death....so I just hope its true....its too early to comment on this...becasue it was said Vishal Bharadwaj had approached Rani she had agreed principally and then finally did not work....Tigmanshu Dhulia is one of the best talents we have around.....so just hope she has the sense this time to accept it.......because earlier she has refused the likes of Mani Ratnam ( Kannathil muthamittal was first offered to Rani...) , Ashutosh gowariker ( multiple times..once for lagan n thn swadesh ...every time date problems...) and Vishal...so i hope she has better sense this time....N ppl talkng abt Vidya bng part of it..no doubt Vidya is excellent but Rani is no less.......Only top classs directors like Mani Ratnam, Vishal , Tigmangshu kno her worth..........anywes let there be confirmation first n thn we can rejoice....with her peculiar decisions we nvr kno..she mite as back out...or this mite be a completely false news....Anywes it will be grt to see her in the film....

As we know Rani seems to reject more films that she accepts. I hope she says YES to this one sounds interesting.

boring. why doesn't he choose Vidya, that's hit written all over it.
rani will just produce another flop.

Disgusting racist comment about Rani being too dark to play the Begum. Nobody complains when foreign actresses who do not look Indian at all play desi heroines in Bollywood so why are people complaining about this choice? Rani is a true Desi beauty shame on people for criticizing her skin colour.

YAY! :D

Yay Rani! I hope this actually comes to pass. After Vidya, we need more fabulous ladies who are willing and able to carry films signing with directors like these.

I really hope this project materializes!! This the kind of staff Rani should be doing. Way to go girl!!!

Good going Rani! I want to see her in more films like this. Anybody can play the heroine in films like Ra.One, Don 2, Bodyguard and Agneepath and just put lots of makeup and wigs and come look pretty for 2 scenes, 5 songs. But only few like Rani can do heroine centric movies with edgy directors like Tigmanshu. I hope she continues to choose good quality movies like this and not waste time doing decorative roles in timepass films.

Awesome! Can't wait to see the true Queen at her best again!

so excited for rani
she needs to do yash chopras movie with srk - i mean girl has not worked in a single lead yash chopra movie
(she was supporting in veer zaara)

Wonder why he didnt think of VB. I think she is more accomplished actress and has proved she can carry a women oriented role movie and make money for the producers. just saying economics of movie business overtakes substance in Indian Film Industry.
