Bollywood actress Rani Mukerji remembered the shooting of the movie `Ghulam` and how even after having high fever her co-star Aamir Khan continued to work without taking any break and this became an inspiration for her to give importance to work.
When Rani listened to `Indian Idol 13` contestant Senjuti Das`s rendition of `Jadoo Hai Tera` from Vikram Bhatt`s 1998 film `Ghulam`, she recollected her shooting days with Aamir in Manali, Himachal Pradesh.
Rani told Senjuti: “When you started singing the song from `Ghulam`, I had flashbacks because when I started filming for `Ghulam,` I was only 17 years old. Aamir Khan, who is one of India`s biggest stars, was opposite me. I very well remember that we were shooting in Manali for the song and Aamir was down with a high fever. Around that time, I witnessed the dedication of an artist who continued to work even with a fever.”

She went on to say: “So for me as a newcomer, it was an admirable quality about my co-star, and following his footsteps, I kept growing in life. When it comes to work, there can be no excuses. Work is most important. I have also heard how independent you are, you also take care of your parents and you have come this far on your own. I pray that all your hard work gets fulfilled by winning the trophy.”
While appreciating the contestant for her range and the way she sang two different tracks `Jadoo Hai Tera` from `Ghulam` and `Aga Bai` from her 2012 film, `Aiyyaa` perfectly, Rani added: “I would only say that Senjuti, you have an excellent range in your voice. Both, `Jadoo Hai Tera` and `Aga Bai` are different in their own way, and I`d like to add that the composition of one song was done by Jatin-Lalit and the other by Amit Trivedi. Both the albums, `Ghulam` and `Aiyyaa` are my favorite albums.”
“But the way you started singing `Aga Bai` which is a very difficult song is just amazing. I am very sure you are going to be a playback singer. You have a very strong and clear voice,” concluded Rani.
`Indian Idol 13` airs on Sony Entertainment Television.
