After rubbing director Vishal Bhardwaj the wrong way, Rani Mukherjee is making sure she doesn’t decline offers from any other talented director. As it is, she hasn’t been getting too many offers of late, so to decline whatever’s coming her way doesn’t seem to be too wise.
Rani’s been on a new high after the success of No One Killed Jessica. She also went ahead and signed Reema Kagti’s film opposite Aamir Khan. She was very keen on working with Vishal, but refused the offer after he decided to cast her opposite Emraan Hashmi. Apparently, she has been sending him feelers, expressing a desire to work on the project. Sources now inform that the actress has signed Anurag Kashyap’s next venture. Rani will be seen opposite Malayalam filmstar Prithviraj in it.
After No One Killed Jessica, Rani has realised that she needs to look beyond Yash Raj Films, which used to be her second home. “Rani is making sure that she does not do films just to play the lead. She is looking at roles that have substance and will allow her to experiment beyond just being glamorous on screen,” adds our source. The film will be directed by Sachin Kundalkar, a National Award winning Marathi director. It’s apparently a quirky love story and is scripted by Anurag Kashyap.
