Much has been written about the animosity between the stars of the upcoming No One Killed Jessica but actors Vidya Balan and Rani Mukherjee have brushed away the rumours of their alleged fall-out.

At the unveiling of the song Aali Re Saali Re, Rani had refuted reports of their discord and said, “Vidya always has a smile on her face when she sees me!” Now here’s a reason behind Vidya Balan’s smile:

Inspired by a scene from Vidya Balan’s Ishqiya (in which she seductively sucks Arshad Warsi’s thumb), Rani Mukherjee never left an opportunity to tease her co-star. Vidya says,“Rani would start sucking her thumb as soon as she saw me and I’d keep laughing. There’s a scene in ‘No One Killed Jessica’ where I open the door and Rani is standing in front of me. It took me  8-10 takes to get it right because whenever I opened the door, she’d have her thumb firmly in her mouth!”

Vidya denies rumours of any bad-blood between the two, “It’s completely untrue. We don’t claim to be friends because friendship requires a lot of time and work, but there’s a lot of warmth and affection between us. I had been to her house for Ganpati, we even made chocolate modaks together.”
