The actress also shared that how the entire set would have ample of food to eat from chaat to paratha and chhole.

Veer-Zaara, one of the iconic movie starring Rani Mukerji, Preity Zinta and Shah Rukh Khan won hearts of millions. The film completed its 15 years and is still being loved by the fans. The film Veer Zara and actress Rani Mukerji were trending on social media platforms after the actress shared behind the scene moments while shooting the film. She also revealed that awkward the actress felt while seeing Shah Rukh Khan in a father figure role.


Rani Mukerji shared her experience while working with legendary director Yash Chopra and said, "There are 2 very distinct things that come to my mind when I think of Veer-Zaara. First, of course, working with the legendary Yash Chopra. Just to shoot with him was an experience by itself because when you shoot with a master like him you realize how great he is. His greatness was that he would never see the monitor! He was always behind the cameraman watching us and okaying the shots which were very new for me because the directors who I had worked with, used to be just very close to the monitor because that became the new age thing to do."

"But when I shot with Yash uncle, I realised that how they (such iconic filmmakers) must be actually taking out work from actors because they were constantly looking at us standing next to the camera, calling for the shots. That was something really, incredibly special. He was the only director who wanted to feed us all the time to make sure we were happy and laughing," she added.

Rani Mukerji further revealed, "The other thing that I remember was seeing Shah Rukh in the old avatar which was really awkward for both of us. Before this, I had always romanced him and in this film, he had to look at me with the imagery of a daughter and I had to look at him as a father figure, which was a bit tough. Romancing Shah Rukh is much easier."

"So, I think that camaraderie that we had made us burst out laughing a lot of times much to the annoyance of Adi and Yash Uncle because they would be like you got to concentrate on the shot and Shah Rukh and me would start our giggle fit and it would never stop. These are the 2 main things I remember and of course, my outdoor with Yash uncle in Punjab. Punjab being his place, where he was born and brought up, the shooting experience was just incredible", she said.
