Aditya Chopra extra careful about Rani Mukherjee
YRF head honcho Aditya Chopra is extra careful about his ladylove Rani Mukherjee’s new film, ‘Mardani’ which will go on floor in January 2014. He is going extra mile and has been putting creative inputs. ‘Mardani’ will be directed by Pradeep Sarkar of ‘Parineeta’ fame. Aditya and Pradeep are working very closely in this project to avoid any sort of loopholes.
Says a source, “Aditya Chopra is personally ensuring that everything falls into place. The project was getting delayed as the final script was not being locked in.”
The film in question is an adaptation of the Bengali novel, Devi Chaudhurani written by Bankim Chandra Chatterji.
Adds the source, “There were times when Aditya Chopra didn’t like the final draft and at times Pradeep felt like making some changes, but now finally Aditya Chopra has approved of the final draft.”
For the first time, Rani will be essaying the role of a cop in the film, and there is a buzz that Salman Khan might play a cameo in the film.
According to a source close to Rani, “She always wanted to play the role of a cop and with this project her wish will be fulfilled.”
Rani had to shed weight for the role. “She has to reduce about 12 kg to play the role of a cop,” adds the source.The Yash Raj spokesperson says, “The film is going on the floors in January and releases on July 18. The shoot was pushed not because of script changes, but because Rani Mukerji wanted some additional time for training.”
Aditya Chopra and Rani Mukherjee has been dating for quite sometime and contemplating marriage. The couple is rumored to tie the knot in early next year but there is no any official confirmation about the report.
This will be Rani's first and Aditya's second marriage. Aditya was divorced from his first wife Payal.
