In ‘Aiyyaa’, Rani Mukherjee pays tribute to the three Bollywood divas- Sridevi , Madhuri Dixit and Juhi Chawla


In her upcoming film ‘Aiyyaa’, the actress will pay tribute to the three divas of Bollywood. For someone, who has grown-up watching and enacting their scenes, it is like a wish fulfillment for her.

The opening sequence of the film shows her taking a pledge in front of the posters of Sridevi , Madhuri Dixit and Juhi Chawla. Says a source, “Rani personally looks up to all three of them and was quite kicked while shooting this scene.”

More than half of the shooting of the film was done in the J.J School of Arts in Mumbai. In the film, Prithviraj  plays a student studying at J.J school of arts. The makers wanted to make his character look more authentic so they wrote to the trustees of this college. However the State government had stopped giving permission for films and ad shoots inside the premises after four 125-year-old sculptures were severely damaged during a film shoot earlier. But after much back and forth, the team finally got permission to shoot inside the college.

‘Aiyyaa’ is a story about a Marathi girl Meenakshi Deshpande (Meenakshi) falling in love with a Tamil artist Surya (Prithviraj). It is a quirky and funny love story with the backdrop of a Marathi-Tamil cultural clash. The lead female protagonist woos the stranger she desires as he smells good. This is Rani’s comeback into the industry and people have high hopes form the film.
