After essaying critically acclaimed roles in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's 'Black' and 'Saawariya', actress Rani Mukherjee is likely to team up with the filmmaker again on the big screen.

"I first worked with him (Sanjay Leela Bhansali) in 'Black'. I am happy to be a part of that film. He has promised me that he will make more films with me," Rani, who is a close friend of Bhansali, told reporters here last night.

Rani walked down the memory lane, recollecting the time she agreed to be part of 'Black', in which she played a blind, deaf and mute girl.

"He gifted me 'Black'. It was wonderful to work with him on a film like that. I remember I was in Italy when Sanjay offered me the film. I liked it and agreed to be part of it. I must say he shocked everyone with the movie. My journey with him has been wonderful," Rani said.

Dressed in a red sari, the Bengali beauty had come to launch Bhansali's debut TV show 'SaraswatiChandra' - a classic love story - and give him best wishes.

"I will always be there for him. He is my good friend and favourite director. This is his debut on television and I wish him good luck. I want everyone to watch this show.

"I am sure that like his films 'Devdas', 'Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam', 'Black' and others, even this show will be spectacular," she said.

The show has popular TV actors Gautam Rode and Jennifer Winget in lead roles.
"I am sure we would get a wonderful pair on screen with this show. I am hopeful audience will like them. They are a lovely pair on screen," Rani said.
