Rani Mukerji is all happy after reprising her role of Vimmi aka Babli in the second edition of Bunty Aur Babli. In a recent interaction with IANS, she recollected the memories from the shoot and opened up about continuing to shoot despite a terrible knee injury.

The actor revealed the injury that happened between the shoot of the song Dhik Chik. She also added that she was not aware of the seriousness of her injury then. 

“I had an excruciating pain in one of my knees because of the tear in the cartilage,” she said. Rani seems to have completed the shoot with pain and undergone an MRI scan, after which she realised the cartilage tear. She also said that she was prescribed a three months rest to get it healed completely.

Further talking about it, the Mardaani actor said that an actor’s job sometimes is to forget everything and focus on the performance. The film is so important to her as well as the crew, and so she didn’t let a situation derail herself from standing by the team.

She also believes that artists are meant to entertain, not to show their personal lives. “The show must go on '', concluded her.

Helmed by debutant Varun V Sharma, the movie is a sequel to the 2005 film Bunty Aur Babli, which had Abhishek Bachchan and Rani playing titular roles. The second edition features Saif Ali Khan, Rani, Siddhant Chaturvedi and debutante Sharvari Wagh in prominent roles. The movie was released in theatres on Friday.
