Rani who's currently shooting with Pradeep Sarkar for Laga Chunri Mein Daag feels as though she's doing a Bengali film.

"We're all Bongs here....from Pradeep-da and his wife to Jayaji and Konkona. All you'll hear on the sets is a loud babble of Bengali voices. We're constantly jabbering in Bengali and cracking up at our own jokes. If you enter the shoot you'll feel it's a Bengali film."

In fact the one outsider is Konkona's co-star Kunal Kapoor whom the two girls Rani and Konkona constantly torment by talking in Bengali.

Rani cracks up. " It's so cute, really. Pradeep-da and his unit treat me like a family member. The entire day we're laughing and cracking up at our own jokes. Shooting is always fun. But this time it's something else."

Isn't the bonding over a few schedules too little time to be treated as family members?

"No no. It's not as though I got to know Pradeep-da only in this film. I've done many ads with him. It's my good fortune that I'm now doing a feature film with him. Pradeep-da has a stunning eye for detail. The other unit where I'm having as much fun right now is Sanjay Leela Bhansali's during Saawariya."

She ponders and says, "Whether it is Pradeep-da or Sanjay, I love my directors People who are part of my life would never ever disrespect me or my family, or I theirs."
