The bubbly Rani Mukherjee is these days upset is with Sanjay Leela Bhansali. Recently the filmmaker stated that Rani wanted the title Hadippa from him, but Bhansali’s sister Bela Segal also wanted to make a film in the same name hence he couldn’t meet the terms. He further said, "They then added two words, 'Dil Bole' with Hadippa and used it as Dil Bole Hadippa (2009). I was upset about it. I thought that wasn't done."
Rani who has given a mind blowing performance in Black of Sanjay Leela Bhansali in 2005 is rather shocked to learn that the director has dragged an age old issue now. "Sanjay needs to tell me why he has involved my name, probably because I mediated between Adi (producer Aditya Chopra) and him. I wanted things to happen in an amicable manner, but since they didn't, Yashraj (producers of Dil Bole Hadippa) did what they had to do,” says an upset Rani.
As an actor Rani accepts that she cannot take a title from anyone. She is least concerned about it. And how can she indulge in this business of title securing? "This is not my department. An actor only acts. Sanjay is also aware of the fact that it's never an actor's prerogative. Yes, as a friend, I tried to mediate, but the final decision was taken by the producers," says Rani. She feels that Yashraj didn’t do anything wrong in this case.
She is confident that Yashraj were right in what they did. "If Dil Bole Hadippa released, Yashraj must have got permission from the concerned authorities to go ahead with it. There are a lot of technicalities involved. You can't simply take a title,” says a supporting Rani.Read also
