Patna-based Bollywood journalist Subhash K Jha, who Sonu Nigam had accused of unmentionable things, has used the reputed national syndicated platform of Indo-Asian News Service (IANS) to vent out his personal grudge against renowned actress Rani Mukerji, who is married to Aditya Chopra, the head honcho of Yash Raj Films (YRF).
In a letter against the marketing and PR team of YRF, the journalist goes on to revel in a moment where he claims to have seen Rani Mukerji dancing atop a dining table and rues that the YRF team does not let him carry out direct interactions with her anymore.
Jha points out that he wants to witness more moments such as the one where Rani danced on the table. “I wait to see you dance on that gleaming table-top once again. But without your marketing team monitoring every move,” he wrote in his letter to her.
The journalist’s letter which has been posted on his personal website, has been shared by the news and feature agency IANS in various media outlets.
Meanwhile, in an unrelated message shared with her fans on Twitter and Instagram, Rani Mukerji remarked, “For a woman, the disparity with a man is huge and glaring in this industry. We are judged for our looks, our dancing skills, our height, our voice, our acting, how we carry ourselves every time we step out of the house – we have to be the best and yet we are thought to be extremely dispensable.”
After her 2014 hit Mardaani, the actress is set to make a comeback with Maneesh Sharma’s Hichki. Mukerji, who turned 40 just about yesterday, said said, “On my birthday, I cannot skirt these massive ‘hichkis’ that my fellow actresses and I have faced/face and will face every day.”
The film has Rani playing the character of Naina Mathur, a lady who has Tourette Syndrome (a disorder which forces an individual to make involuntary repetitive movements or sounds) but is ready to overcome all obstacles to become a teacher.
Produced by Yash Raj Films, the movie is set to release on March 23 this week.
