Rani Mukerji is currently riding high on the success of her new movie Mrs Chatterjee Vs Norway. The actress brilliantly portrayed the role of Debika Chatterjee, a distressed Indian mother who fights for her kids’ custody in Norway. But there’s a shocking anecdote from Rani’s childhood that has caught everyone’s attention.
In an old interview, Rani once revealed that she got switched with another baby at birth and how it was her mother who realised what had happened. She shared, “When I was born, I got stuck in a Punjabi couple’s room. So my mom went and brought me from there. Actually, it is an interesting story that I got exchanged in the hospital. My mother saw the other baby and said, this isn’t my baby. She doesn’t have brown eyes. My daughter has brown eyes. Go and search for my child.”
She further added, “When my mother started searching, there was a Punjabi family who had a daughter for the eighth time. I was there. Even now they joke that you are actually a Punjabi. My mistake you ended up in our family.”
Rani was born into a Bengali family. Her father, Ram Mukherjee, was a film director-producer and married to Krishna Mukherjee. The actress has an elder brother Raja Mukherjee and she’s the cousin of popular actress Kajol and filmmaker Ayaan Mukerji.
OMG! What if Rani’s mom hadn’t caught the switch? Rani wouldn’t have blessed us with her talent! Well, it’s hard to even imagine.
