Rani is known for her versatility and ability to portray a wide range of characters, she has earned critical acclaim and numerous awards throughout her career. However, there was a brief time when she refused to take any film after the failure of Mujhse Dosti Karoge.

At that time, Rani Mukerji was offered the film Saathiya, a remake of Mani Ratnam’s Tamil film Alai Payuthey, by Yash Chopra. In a discussion with News 18, she disclosed that the late filmmaker-producer proposed releasing them only upon her acceptance of the role.

Rani Mukerji said, “At that time, (I was) refusing work like my mother thought I had gone mad because anything that was getting offered to me I was just like ‘no, no, no.’ I started taking decisions then,” adding that she was not doing anything at the time.

“A lot of film critics and magazines had written me off, and they said, ‘her career’s over,’ and I was okay with that. I was like, probably they are right, but I’m not going to give up. I’m going to take up something that my heart believes in. Then luckily, Saathiya came along, and I remember Yash (Chopra) uncle calling my parents to the office. My parents had gone to tell Yash uncle that ‘Rani is not interested in doing this film’. He called me up and said, ‘Beta, you’re making a very big mistake. I’m locking the door of my room, and I’m not letting your parents out till you say yes to the film’. And I thank him for that,” she added.

For the unversed, Saathiya starred Vivek Oberoi as well and was directed by Shaad Ali.
