I am daughter of the country: Rani Mukherji

Actress Rani Mukerji, who is making a comeback with Aiyaa feels happy that her marriage is the talk of the town and says that people’s concern makes her feel like being the daughter of the country.

I feel very lucky that the entire country thinks about my marriage. In that sense I am the daughter of the country because they are so concerned about my marriage.I am extremely happy that they are thinking about my marriage and not of anything else but such an auspicious thing. So for me, it is a very sweet thing.

added Rani, who is rumoured to be with Aditya Chopra.

As of now, the actress awaits the release of Aiyaa, her film that revolves around marriage.

Directed by National Award winning director Sachin Kundalkar, it sees Rani as a Pune-based Marathi girl Meenakshi Deshpande whose parents want to her to get married. But she falls in love with a Tamil painter as she is attracted by his body odour. Rani admits the film is a risk as audiences are not used to this kind of cinema.

‘Aiyyaa’ is one such risk that I have taken because not only the script is whacked-out, but also the filmmaking style that Sachin has adapted is very different to what our Hindi audience is used to watching.

I am not talking about just a section of people in the city. When you see pan India, every girl wants to be independent and make her choice in terms of a life partner. Unfortunately, some girls don’t have the liberty to make that choice because they are burdened with the thought that this is what they have to follow.

she said.

Talking about her character, she says,

Not only young girls, but mothers and grandmothers, who have been through this situation in their lives, will relate to my character.

‘Aiyyaa’ will introduce southern star Prithviraj Sukumaran when it releases Oct 12.
