The husky-voiced Bengali beauty is taking her role as Maharashtrian mulgi (read girl) really serious, we hear.
Rani Mukerji, who is doing Sachin Kundalkar's 'Aiyya', is said to be perfecting her lingo as well as her dancing steps to play the character. The talented beauty will be shooting for a song which will have a typical lavani dance, the traditional Maharashtrian dance form. The song which goes "Aga Bai" will be choreographed by Vaibhavi Merchant. According to sources, in the song one can see Rani wearing navvari - the traditional nine-yard saree, the nose ring called nathni and other accessories that traditional lavani dancers wear.
Both Vaibhavi and Rani are said to be quite excited over the number. While they are taking notes by watching popular lavani numbers, Rani is taking a step ahead and going to meet some professional dancers to learn the dance in detail. Besides, the director shared to sources that the actress has also done a couple of workshops to learn the language and mannerisms of playing a Maharashtrian girl in the film.
Sources added that since Sachin Kundalkar is a Maharashtrian he wants to present the lavani number in an authentic manner.
'Aiyya' is the launch pad for South actor Prithviraj in Bollywood who stars opposite Rani in this one.
