Rani has starred with popular stars like Manoj Tiwari and Ravi Kishan, and is also known for her roles in films like Sasura Bada Paisawala, Sita, Devra Bada Satawela and Rani No. 786.

Bigg Boss, in the past too, has welcomed Bhojpuri actors on the show. While Nirahua, Sambhavna Seth, Ravi and Manoj were part of the show, many of them also attended actor Mona Lisa’s wedding with her beau Vikrant Singh Rajpoot, which took place inside the House.

In the video, Salman says, “Maine apne padosi se kya manga? Pyaar manga, sirf pyaar.” (What did I ask of my neighbour? I asked for love, only love.)
