According to sources in the film industry, Rani has been giving major attitude to Yash Raj staff and technicians because of her close ties with Aditya Chopra. Says a source, “Rani has started throwing her weight around a lot.
Recently, she fired the dubbing staff at Yash Raj studio because most of her scenes had to be redone. It wasn"t their fault. Rani herself had refused to wear a microphone while shooting for Laaga Chunri Mein Daag, which has been shot in sync sound film.
The sound quality was very bad and she was called in. No one could say anything to her as she kept screaming, 'I"m going to tell Adi!""
However, that wasn"t all. Continues the source, “Rani regularly fires the publicity girls at Yash Raj, as she wants to do all her interviews at the studio only.
In fact, she even got ad filmmaker Prasoon Pandey replaced for an ad because his production house did not want to shoot at Yash Raj.
Whenever she wants to do anything at Yash Raj studios, she makes the staff cancel other people"s bookings saying, 'Adi will sort it out"."
It is believed that even the normally even-tempered Kunal Kohli got upset with Rani a few days ago when she arrived late for the shoot of his film (with Saif Ali Khan).
“Kunal fired her for coming late. Next thing, you know, Kunal, Adi and Rani were seen sorting out the matter and Rani sulked the entire day."
When we checked with Kunal, he chose to deny it, saying, “It"s not true." As did a spokesperson from Yash Raj, who said, “We do not comment on the personal and professional lives of our individual stars."
