Rani Mukerji is currently reeling under shock over the news of the untimely demise of Sridevi. The 54-year-old actor passed away on February 24, 2018, in Dubai. Rani Mukerji, whose film Hichki is releasing this month around her birthday, is one of the grieving ones. While Hichki is hitting the screens on March 23, Rani’s birthday falls on March 21. She will turn 40 this year.
However, there will be no celebration as she has decided to not celebrate it in Sridevi’s honour, says a report.
When asked if she will be celebrating her 40th birthday next month, Rani revealed to a leading magazine, Rani remembered her association with Sridevi. She said, “I feel extremely sad that two people who loved me immensely, my dad and Sriji, who would have given their genuine reaction for my movie, both are missing from my life now. It’s a huge loss for me.”
Like many of her Bollywood contemporaries, Rani also considers Sridevi to be a massive influence. Sridevi redefined the role of women in Bollywood in the ‘80s and ‘90s. “Sriji has been my favourite since my childhood.
Recounting her memories of Sridevi, Rani said, “I was very close to her personally. In fact, before she went to Dubai, she told me that she wants to see Hichki and I told her that.
Hichki, directed by Siddharth P Malhotra and produced by Maneesh Sharma under the film production banner of Yash Raj Films, is slated to hit the screens on March 23.
