When Ram Mukherji suddenly fell ill earlier this week, his daughter Rani of course dropped everything and rushed to his side. He had previously suffered two heart attacks and the natural thought was that he had been struck again. “Luckily it wasn’t his heart,” Rani explained. “It was his kidney. And that was bad enough. Because of his earlier heart condition the kidney couldn’t take the strain. So yes I’ve been through a rough time. But all is well now. Dad is well on the road to recovery. And we can’t thank the industry and all my friends and his friends enough.”
Rani has now wrapped up shooting for her latest Yash Raj project, Hadippa, with Shahid Kapur. The rumours suggest that a lean and sexy Rani is going to set the screen on fire with her new role. The movie will be Rani’s only release for this year so a lot is riding on it. “Rani is very committed towards her body and her dedication has resulted in mind-blowing results,” says her personal trainer. “I felt so happy and proud after seeing the first rushes of Hadippa. She is looking outstanding and I can undoubtedly say she has the best body in Bollywood now.”
There is also good news for Rani on the legal front. The Bombay High Court has given her permission to develop the land she bought at Shirdi which had been buried in litigation. Measuring about ten acres, the final value of the developed properties could run into millions of dollars.
All in all, it’s been quite an eventful week for Rani!
