Rani Mukerji is riding high on the success of HICHKI. After her comeback to films post-delivery, it was indeed a delight to see her on-screen.
During the success interview when asked her how she bagged HICHKI, Rani said, “It was Sidharth Malhotra who has this idea for 6 years and they had already approached a female actor, but somehow tit didn’t work out between them. When the script of HICHKI was ready, I wasn’t approached as I was expecting so they couldn’t approach me anyhow. When Adira was born and again they decided to work on script I was offered again and by that time Adira was few years old and I readily agreed to do it.”
Adira is way too small, but when we quizzed her has Adira seen the film to which she said, “ Yes I took her for a special screening for the film, she was on my lap and as soon as I came on-screen she saw me and said, ‘Yeh toh meri mumma hai,’ and then she would again start playing and then whenever I would come on-screen she would look at the screen and again look at my face. During the second half I took her out as the second half was a bit sad and gloomy.”
