Marriage rumours affecting my career: Rani Mukherji

"These rumours have been going on for three years and they have now started affecting my career. Lot of filmmakers who approach me for roles start by asking whether I am getting married. They have apprehensions whether I can commit myself to their project," Rani said.

The 31-year-old actress said the baseless stories about her are getting stretched too far.
"I can't be getting married to so many men for the last three years," said Rani talking about her alleged link ups including the rumour about her marriage to filmmaker Aditya Chopra.

"I am the only daughter of my parents. When I get married, it will be announced publicly and will take place with pomp," Rani said. The actress recalled that three years ago when the rumours about her marriage started, her father had to come on television to clarify.
"No father should be put through such misery. Despite clarifications, the rumours have continued. You have to believe what I am saying. But, if you still continue spreading stories about me, I cant stop you," Rani said.

Rani also admitted that she lacks the PR skills which forms a major part of her profession and that results in speculative stories about her. "It is a shortcoming that I have as I don't like to talk about my daily life. The media has taken advantage of my silence and communicated to my fans very wrongly," she said.

The actress said that the "most laughable" rumour was that she had left her posh Juhu bungalow because it had brought her bad luck and has moved back to her old flat at Andheri. "I have made the new house for my family from my hard work, sweat and blood. My house is my temple and how can I run away from it. I am being made to look like an insecure person which I am not," she said.

Talking about her latest venture, 'Dil Bole Haddipa', Rani said that the movie came to her at the right time when she got a feedback that she was crying too much on screen doing serious roles. Rani was last seen in 'Thoda Pyar Thoda Magic' in 2008, and is back with another Yashraj film after an year.

When asked about the fascination with the production house Rani said, "I can do two three films at a time if there are great roles. I don't want to prove anything to my detractors that I work only in Yash Raj films. If Yash Raj offers me challenging roles, I will take up those projects," she said.
