Rani and YRF go separate ways for box office luck
MUMBAI: Looks like Rani Mukherji and Yash Raj Films are unlucky for each other.
After multiple flops such as Tara Rum Pum, Laaga Chunari Mein Daag, Dil Bole Hadippa etc, YRF's once-upon-a-time lucky mascot Rani has reportedly exited from the banner. It should be remembered that the actress was previously seen only in films produced by YRF, none of which did anything good for her.
YRF has been going through a bad patch with most of its films since the hit Chak De! India bombing at the box office.
Last year's New York was the only saving grace for the production house.
Even the entry into TV early this year proved a damp squib for YRF as none of the serials produced by them made a splash, as far as TRPs are concerned.
The production house is now desperate for some good scripts and is leaving no stone unturned to regain its lost glory.
Rani, too, after her string of flops, needs a hit and a meaningful film to suit her talent. But nothing worthwhile seems to be coming her way either.
According to sources, the actress has now acquired a slim figure and is looking forward to suitable roles.
Let's wait and watch whether YRF's upcoming release, the Shahid Kapoor- Anushka Sharma starrer Badmaash Company, turns its fortunes. Looks unlikely but here's wishing them all the best! And Rani too.
