Ever since the promotions of actor Rani Mukerji’s upcoming film Aiyyaa started, the actor has been quizzed about her being ‘secretly married’ to filmmaker Aditya Chopra. The 34-year-old says that the country’s concern about her marriage makes her feel like “the daughter of the entire nation”. “I believe birth, marriage and death are three things that no one can predict. So, whenever I get married, it will be a happy day for me and for my fans as well,” says the actor who was in the Capital on Monday.
She says that the shaadi talk doesn’t bother her. “I feel lucky that everyone is thinking about my marriage and is so concerned about it. It seems the entire nation wants me to get married,” she says.
Rani also slams reports that her film is similar to Vidya Balan’s The Dirty Picture. “There is no comparison. You have to see the film to realise that. People have to write something and hence there is always news of some or the other comparison cropping up,” she says adding that the film is a “risk”. “I hope it turns in my favour!”
