Rani is playing the role of Vimmy in this second edition of the original film where she was seen with Abhishek Bachchan, a decade ago.

The incident took place when she was shooting a song titled ‘Dhik-Chik’. Rani shot the song in severe pain. She said that she was not aware of the seriousness of the injury which she revealed recently.

"I had an excruciating pain in one of my knees because of the tear in the cartilage. I shot for 'Dhik Chik' with insurmountable pain, but I had no idea about the nature of the injury. It was only after the shoot, when I got an MRI done, did I realise that I had a tear in my cartilage and had to rest my knee for a minimum of three months so that it could heal properly," said Rani while talking about her experience.

Mukerji added that an actor's job is such that sometimes she has to forget everything and focus on delivering a performance. She added: "It is an important film for me, for all the actors and for the producer and the stakeholders. I have never let such situations derail me from the bigger picture of standing by my films or my co-stars."

Complimenting the 'Bunty Aur Babli 2' team, Mukerji said it had been promoting the film round the clock, "without taking a break". She added: "The show must go on. Artistes are meant to entertain and not show what they are undergoing in their personal lives. I'm doing just that for my film."

'Bunty Aur Babli 2', directed by Varun V. Sharma, also features Saif Ali Khan, Siddhant Chaturvedi and debutante Sharvari.
