    Dil Bole Hadippa - a Review

    Bollywood actress Rani Mukherji, who essays a sport-loving Sikh character in her upcoming release 'Dil Bole Hadippa' says she feels challenged when critics write her off.

    "I feel challenged when detractors push me to an edge. When critics crush me, I bounce back," Rani, who has undergone a complete makeover for the film said.

    'Dil Bole Hadippa' is not a 'make or break' film of my career. Success and failure is not in my hands. I just want to enjoy my work as an actor," Rani who is paired opposite Shahid Kapur for the first time in the movie, said.

    Rani said she started work for 'Hadippa' immediately after her last release 'Thoda Pyar Thoda Magic' last year.

    The actress said that since she was playing the role of an athlete, she decided to be completely fit.

    "It was a demanding film because I was playing a boy as well as a cricketer. I underwent six months of training right from learning how to hold a bat. I have given my heart and soul to the film," Rani, who plays Veera as well as Veer, a Sikh boy, said.

    "I trained in Yoga, cardio, weight training which helped my skin to glow and my diet included oats, brown rice and jowar roti. I have lost 7 kg and am feeling good and physically fit. Now, I can pull off an action film," she said.

    Speaking about the movie, she said, "Its a vibrant and happy film. I have ensured that my Sikh character is not a caricature."

    "Veer is an very interesting role and close to my heart," Rani said adding it was a strange moment for her to look at herself as a man.

    She said there was no similarility between Veera and Babli from her earlier movie 'Bunty aur Babli' except that they both hail from small town.

    Expressing anguish at continuous rumours about her marriage and working only for Yash Raj banner, Rani said, "I respect my privacy. This does not mean that my detractors continue to run me down and make me a person which I am not."

    She said her family has been her support system. "My neice gives me great positive energy. It's wonderful to see her grow up," she said.

    The actress said she wanted to work with filmmakers like Vishal Bharadwaj and other prominent directors.

    "I am waiting for good scripts and roles. But, unfortunately the roles which have come to me so far have not excited me enough," she said.

    "The films I have rejected may have become superhits, but they would not have helped me as an actor. The filmmakers would have surely benefited by having me," she said.

    When asked about she being paired opposite younger hero like Shahid Kapur, Rani said, "He is a very focused actor and I like such artistes.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
