Rani has three key item numbers in the movie, co-produced by Anurag Kashyap and Viacom 18, and she wanted none other than the National Award-winning Vaibhavi to supervise them.

“Rani waited for over two months to start Aiyya so that she could get Vaibhavi’s time. The movie demanded a lot of rigorous dance routines which she thought only Vaibhavi will be able to do,” said a source.

Aiyya, directed by Sachin Kundalkar, is said to be about a woman who finds a man desirable because he smells good.

Rani who plays a Marathi girl in the movie is paired opposite southern star Prithvi Raj.
