Dreamum Wakeupum is a tribute to South films - Rani Mukerji
Bollywood Hungama - over 4 years
Aiyyaa is making news for reasons more than one. Just when it seemed that the film may get trapped in racism row, the song 'Dreamup Wakeupum' has caught further attention for its lead pair Rani Mukerji and Prithiviraj. "In front of 'Dreamup Wakeup', it seems as if 'Ooh Laa Laa' from The Dirty Picture was a kindergarten affair. What had seemed scandalous about Vidya Balan's act in the film has been taken to a different level by Rani. In a career lasting over 15 years, she has never done something like this and even for her most loyal fans, this is nothing less than shocking", comments a filmmaker.

Central Chronicle - almost 5 years
When was the last time you saw Rani as an item girl? Probably decades ago in Aamir Khan’s Mann. But now the babe is keen on refreshing our collective memory with a little jhatka-matka thing in her new movie, Aiyya. Rani Mukerji is all set to bounce back from her sabbatical. From what we hear the actor has nabbed some meaty roles that will mark her comeback to the big screen. But do you know what the best part is? The ‘Aati kya khandala’ babe will step into the zingy shoes of an item girl in Sachin Kundalka’s Aiyya. As per the buzz, the Mukerji girl is playing a demure Marathi mulgi in the movie and will undergo a makeover after she falls in love. That’s when she’ll get a chance to flaunt her jhatkas and a few matkas as well. Hmmm, that’s interesting. And doesn’t that look like a real life transition too? Rani for a while now has essayed roles that have been understated and devoid of over-the-top oomph. But we guess the dusky beauty with a hoarse…oops…husky voice wants to surprise us ...
