Actors always crave for adulation, says Rani

Rani Mukerji is disheartened that not many went to see her latest release 'Aiyyaa' and says that actors always crave for adulation.

Produced by Anurag Kashyap and directed by debutant Sachin Kundalkar 'Aiyyaa' had Rani and south actor Prithviraj in lead roles. Rani played the role of a Marathi girl who falls in love with a Malayali boy.

However, the film did not create magic at the box office.


"Appreciation can only come if people watch the film. In case of 'Aiyyaa' probably people didn't come. It is a very sad situation for me. We actors always crave for adulation," Rani said.

"If our film translates into success it only means a lot of people went to watch the film. That gives us immense pleasure. The minute we know that it has flopped we feel that nobody went to see the film," she pointed out.

The 34-year-old actress also said that a story might appeal to different people in different ways, which determines the film's success.

"In case of 'Aiyya', I feel I really liked the story but it might not have appealed to the audience at large. And that's why it didn't do well. But my work was appreciated, my dance will be remembered.

"Till date nobody has pointed flaws in my acting. Atleast they say Rani's film didn't work but she was fabulous. I work towards maintaining that," she said.

The Bengali beauty feels an actor cannot gauge the success of a film.

"How can we gauge... we are not saints, gods, spiritual human beings who can sit and decide whether the film will do well or not. It is not in our hands. Audience is the king and they decide every Friday," Rani said.

"I think from childhood we are taught their will be good days, there will be bad days, you will win some and lose some. But because of that you don't become negative and frustrated and depressed. I think that is how a weak person would behave," she said.

Flops do not deter Rani from working hard on her upcoming films.

"We all have gone through ups and downs. It is the same audience who have given a thumbs down to our films. We are also the same actors who have done well. Not one person can be confident (about a film doing very well)," she said.

"My hard work in each film will always be there. The only thing you can do is give your best, when luck favors it is great. If it doesn't then wait for it to happen," she added.

Presently, Rani is looking forward to the release of 'Talaash'. The film a suspense drama starring Aamir Khan, Kareena Kapoor and Rani in lead roles. Directed by Reema Kagti, it is set to release this Friday.
