Rani Mukerji is in news for all the right and wrong reasons. With a film as quirky and refreshing as Aiyyaa on her platter, she also has been in the news for her character’s uncanny resemblance to Vidya Balan’s ‘Dirty silk’. It was not enough till a video promo of Rani’s Sava Dollar was unveiled recently.
The song sung by the charismatic Sunidhi Chauhan is basically about Rani’s character Meenakshi Deshpande’s innate desire to be an actress and traverses across the big names of the industry, who ruled mainly in the ‘80s and the early ‘90s, a backdrop on which the South meets West love story is thrived on.
In the video promo of her song, Sava Dollar, Rani gyrates to the extensively vivacious and upbeat tunes with her thumkas and the natkhat Lavni steps add to the zing. But then, some of the lines from the song has set the Media ablaze. Lines like ‘pero kea age Bachchan, pero ke niche Rekha’ have been caricatured in the song where Rani tries to imitate both the yesteryear legends’ actions. Though there has been no reaction reported from her Black co-star or from the evergreen diva, Rani’s actions have stormed tabloids and newspapers countrywide. In the video promo that lasts about 2 minutes, Rani lips lines that echo the do-s and don’t-s of being a heroine and she is seen to taking pot shots at the clichés that existed in the tinsel town.
Though Rani, who is extremely happy about her next and is excited to see how the audiences respond to this new wave of Hindi cinema, isn’t going Aiyyaa! about her actions. Not because she is arrogant, because she’s not! The team clarified it to be just a gimmick used in the song and nothing else!
Rani, who ruled our hearts and had been the reigning queen of Bollywood for the last decade suddenly took a sabbatical only to return back with a powerful ‘Meera Gaiti’ in Raj Kumar Gupta’s No One Killed Jessica. The power house actress is usually a very fun loving adorable star, not the usual snob that she’s made out to be and is clearly awaiting the release of Aiyyaa on the 12th of October!
We can only pass on our best wishes to an actress who is more of a fighter.
