Saawariya, the Sanjay Leela Bhansali directorial, completes 12 years today. On the occasion, Rani Mukerji opened up about her experience of working with Sanjay Leela Bhansali and playing Gulab in the film.
Rani’s cameo as Gulab was appreciated back in the day. The film marked Ranbir Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor's debut on big screen.
Rani said, “I remember having a blast with Sanjay, especially the song Chhabeela which was choreographed by none other than Saroj Khan. It’s always a pleasure working with Saroj ji and that song was really fun because before that I had worked with Sanjay in Black. This time, I was working with Sanjay in a different set-up, I got to see his musical side and how he is during a song shoot and also Sonam and Ranbir were new so it was spending time with them on sets and just see Ranbir grow as an actor in that film.”
Rani said she was floored with Sanjay’s vision for Gulab. "That character was quite charming, so all the scenes that I did in Saawariya have been really memorable - the whole get-up, the whole look was amazing and Sanjay had a clear vision of how he wants me in his film. I think for the first time I played a character like that and I thoroughly enjoyed it," she added.
