"I've known her (Kajol) as a kid and she is always Kajol didi (sister) for me and yeah it was a bit strange but I guess when you grow up and grow apart, you don't know the reason why, Rani Mukerji shared her side of the story. They also described the family moment that brought them closer after their dads passed away and a critical time when they could share and relate to the feeling of grief and loss.
