"Appreciation can only come if people watch the film. In case of
Aiyyaa probably people didn't come. It is a very sad
situation for me. We actors always crave for adulation," Rani said.
"If our film translates into success it only means a lot of people
went to watch the film. That gives us immense pleasure. The minute
we know that it has flopped we feel that nobody went to see the
film," she pointed out. The 34-year-old actress also said that a
story might appeal to different people in different ways, which
determines the film's success.
"In case of Aiyyaa, I feel I really liked the story but it might not have appealed to the audience at large. And that's why it didn't do well. But my work was appreciated, my dance will be remembered. "Till date nobody has pointed flaws in my acting. Atleast they say Rani's film didn't work but she was fabulous. I work towards maintaining that," she said. The Bengali beauty feels an actor cannot gauge the success of a film. "How can we gauge... we are not saints, gods, spiritual human beings who can sit and decide whether the film will do well or not. It is not in our hands. Audience is the king and they decide every Friday," Rani said.
