Even though she had four back to back successful flicks then, Bunty Aur Babli (2005), Black (2005), Veer Zaara (2004) and Hum Tum (2004), she hasn't quite tasted box office success ever since then.
While Paheli barely survived, Mangal Pandey - The Rising and Kabhi Alvida Naa Kahna did make money but the high cost and great expectations factor meant that that the HIT tag was still missing. Same was the case with Ta Ra Rum Pum as well, where as Baabul and Laaga Chunari Mein Daag were unquestionable flops.
Ok, so thankfully no one has challenged Rani's acting capabilities in any of these films but in the world where box office speaks volumes, a successful film always speaks a thousand words.
Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic may well be that movie which could help her regain the glory of the past. As an angel, Rani again enjoys an author backed role in the film where she enacts the part of a central protagonist. With no other film in the pipeline after Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic, Rani would indeed be looking for quite some 'pyaar' from the audience and a lot of box office 'magic' once the film hits the screens on 27th June.
She has all the right reasons to believe that though since Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic brings back the magical team of Kunal Kohli and Saif Ali Khan along with her who gave us delightful Hum Tum 4 years back. With Amisha Patel in a hot new avtar for company and some peppy music by Shankar Ehsaan Loy to boast, Rani has a lot riding for her in this YRF production.
