Did you know that Rani Mukerji and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan used to be very close friends around two decades ago? We have to proof to substantiate that. We got our hands on an old video from a popular talk show Jeena Isi Ka Naam Hai hosted by late actor Farooq Sheikh. When Aishwarya Rai was the celebrity guest on the show, she was shown a video message from her close friend Rani Mukerji.
In the video, Rani can be heard saying, “Aishu Maa, you know I love you. I am really sorry I couldn’t come for the show because I am unwell. As you know, I am always unwell, I couldn’t make it to Delhi. Just to let you know that I love you, you mean a lot to me. I just love you Aishu Maa. I just want to say one thing that we are going to be friends forever. I love you.”
For the uninitiated, Aishwarya and Rani used to be very close friends. Reportedly, their equation turned sour when Aishwarya was replaced by Rani in Shah Rukh Khan-starrer Chalte Chalte. Rani even expressed her feelings when she was not invited to Aishwarya’s wedding to Abhishek Bachchan. Also, Rani Mukerji was also very close to Abhishek as she worked with him in Bunty Aur Babli and Yuva.
However, now things have turned normal between two. Rani Mukerji visited Aishwarya Rai when her father passed away in 2017.
On the work front, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan will be seen in Fanney Khan opposite Rajkummar Rao and Anil Kapoor. Rani Mukerji made a powerful comeback in Bollywood with Hichki which opened to rave reviews earlier this year.
