A Bengali brought up in Mumbai, Rani Mukherjee says essaying a Maharashtrian girl in "Aiyyaa" made it all the more special.
The role of a Maharashtrian girl named Meenakshi Deshpande in the movie was like a dream come true for her, says Rani.
"I have always said that I am actually a Maharashtrian girl because I have been born and brought up in Maharashtra. Being a Mumbaikar, Marathi language is not alien to me. It was my dream or wish that some day I should play a Marathi girl's role and with 'Aiyyaa', this dream has come true," the 34-year-old said at a promotional event here.
In the movie, Rani has imitated screen divas Madhuri Dixit, Sridevi and Juhi Chawla and says being a fan of them all, helped her in emulating their dance moves.
Rani says she and director Sachin Kundalkar are equally big fans of the three actresses.
"He (Sachin) has been a huge fan of Juhi, Madhuri and Sri-ji, so when he discussed the idea with me, I told him that it's unbelievable that even I am similarly a fan of theirs. I have grown up loving them," Rani said at a promotional event for the film here.
"So it was a great fit, and I think because the fit was so good, selecting those songs that we loved of theirs and paying a tribute, came naturally," she added.
