Sanjay Leela Bhansali to team up with Rani Mukerji again

Sanjay Leela Bhansali to team up with Rani Mukerji again Mumbai: After essaying critically acclaimed roles in Sanjay Leela Bhansali`s `Black` and `Saawariya`, actress Rani Mukerji is likely to team up with the filmmaker again on the big screen.

"I first worked with him (Sanjay Leela Bhansali) in `Black`. I am happy to be a part of that film. He has promised me that he will make more films with me," Rani, who is a close friend of Bhansali, told reporters here last night.

Rani walked down the memory lane, recollecting the time she agreed to be part of `Black`, in which she played a blind, deaf and mute girl.

"He gifted me `Black`. It was wonderful to work with him on a film like that. I remember I was in Italy when Sanjay offered me the film. I liked it and agreed to be part of it. I must say he shocked everyone with the movie. My journey with him has been wonderful," Rani said.

Dressed in a red sari, the Bengali beauty had come to launch Bhansali`s debut TV show `SaraswatiChandra` - a classic love story - and give him best wishes.

"I will always be there for him. He is my good friend and favourite director. This is his debut on television and I wish him good luck. I want everyone to watch this show.

"I am sure that like his films `Devdas`, `Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam`, `Black` and others, even this show will be spectacular," she said.

The show has popular TV actors Gautam Rode and Jennifer Winget in lead roles.

"I am sure we would get a wonderful pair on screen with this show. I am hopeful audience will like them. They are a lovely pair on screen," Rani said.
