On August 10, we had reported that Rani Mukerji is rumoured to be pregnant. A source said, “Rani has been away from media glare for some time now and there are speculations that she is pregnant. She was recently spotted holidaying in London. The actress looked relaxed and was glowing. She was dressed casually and was seen visiting a plush spa for prenatal massage.”

Another source said, “Rani likes to step out for public events only if it is necessary. After Mardaani (2014), she did not sign any film, though there were rumours that she was offered to play the role of Haseena Parkar, Dawood Ibrahim’s sister, role in a biopic. Sonakshi Sinha will be doing it now.”

Rani’s spokesperson expressed her inability to comment on the buzz.
