So Rani is getting bolder! And so are the meaty roles she is getting though controversial. The ever-so-careful-oh-so-lean-money-making-machine, the Yashraj Films are facing 'a moral question' (never mind the creative one).

Aditya Chopra and director Pradeep Sarkar are hesitant about Rani Mukerji's portrayal of a sex worker in Lagaa Chunari Mein Daag.

The plot has Rani coming from a respectable middle-class family living in a small town. City life lures her and eventually, falling on bad times, she turns to flesh trade for a living.

The makers feel that Rani's journey, from a middle-class woman to a sex worker (in the film), may not go down well with the audiences. In fact, a middle-class woman being portrayed as a sex-worker has always been a strict no-no.

Although a good measure of mother-daughter relationship has been thrown in but that doesn't solve the problem. The plot essentially focuses on Rani's predicament in a big bad city.

There is a also this question of repetition as Rani Mukerji is also playing a sex worker in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Saawariya.

Apparently the recent box-office letdowns (read Tara Rum Pum and Jhoom Barabar Jhoom) has prompted Aditya to mull over the script yet again before the film makes its way to the editing table.

The creative team behind the film already have had a few meetings. We say, when will Yashraj films the family moral instigator grow up and outrage the viewers' sensibilities to a little more than reality. the film is intended to release in September."
