Rani Mukherjee and Abhishek Bachchan have worked together in many films in which they standout. One of them is Yuva, which for the first time gave Abhishek a lot of critical acclaim and Bunty Aur Babli, which was a big commercial success. Therefore, a lot is expected from their upcoming Yash Raj film, Laaga Chunari Mein Daag.
When the Pradeep Sarkar directed movie was launched last year, the general impression given was that Abhishek had a full-fledged role in it. But it came as a shocker when one fine day it was announced that Abhishek only plays a cameo in Laaga Chunari Mein Daag. The reason being - it is a woman centric film that has Rani, Konkona Sen Sharma and Jaya Bachchan in pivotal roles. Another story is making its rounds, according to which good friend Aditya Chopra is miffed at Yash Raj's first lady, Rani being left out of the Abhi-Ash marriage and actress Preity Zinta being given the centre stage. That could have contributed to Abhishek's role becoming a cameo!
However, we are not here to delve into or probe why Abhishek is now playing a cameo in Laaga Chunari Mein Daag. In fact, we have an interesting bit of information according to which Abhishek has most of his scenes in Laaga Chunari Mein Daag with Rani and the two are almost certain to shoot together next month, June 11 to be precise, once Abhishek returns from his honeymoon. We just wonder what the atmosphere would be like as the two will meet for the first time after Abhishek's marriage to Aishwarya Rai, though Rani has maintained a dignified silence about her exclusion from the high profile marriage and has wished the newly weds all the best.
