    Rani Mukherjee is back! The actress will be seen in an upcoming film called Aiyyaa, written and directed by Sachin Kundalkar. The film is co-produced ...

In her upcoming film Aiyyaa, Rani Mukherji will fulfil a long-standing desire. She will pay tribute to three leading ladies of the ’90s — Sridevi, Madhuri Dixit and Juhi Chawla.

In the film, Rani will don Sridevi’s look from Na Jaane Kahan Se (ChaalBaaz, 1989), Madhuri’s Dhak Dhak avatar (Beta, 1992) and Juhi’s style from Gazab Ka Hai Din (Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak, 1989). All three actors, who were the faces of cinema in the ’90s, are Rani’s favourites. She looks up to them and has grown up watching them and even enacting their moves and styles.

Aiyyaa is a story of a Marathi girl, Meenakshi Deshpande (Rani), who falls in love with a Tamil artist Surya (Prithviraj Sukumaran). It is a quirky love story and has the Marathi-Tamil cultural clash as its backdrop.
