Internet sensation Ranu Mondal has recently been making headlines for all the wrong reasons. From her reaction to a fan’s request for a selfie to her recent over-the-top makeup pictures, Ranu has been at the receiving end of flak. Himesh Reshammiya gave Ranu Mondal a break with a song in his film Happy Hardy and Heer and life changed for Ranu.
However, it looks like things haven’t been going well between Ranu and Himesh. The music composer recently attended an event in Mumbai where he interacted with the media.
Back in 2019, Ranu Mondal was one of the biggest internet sensations here in India.
The singer-turned-actor Himesh Reshammiya allowed her with ‘Teri Meri Kahani’ and the 60-year-old became a sensation overnight. And with massive fame comes trolling, Mondal was brutally trolled for her stints on reality television shows.
In fact, Ranu also misbehaved with a fan by refusing to take a selfie and Himesh was questioned about the same later. But guess what, the question irked Himesh and he gave a blunt reply to a reporter.
Himesh Reshammiya said, “I am not her (Ranu Mondal) manager that you are expecting me to answer such questions about her. Ranu is not the only person who I have given break in the industry. Lots of stars such as Darshan Raval, Shannon K, Palak Muchhal have been launched by me.”
Talking in an interview on giving Ranu a break, Himesh said, “When I gave her the break it was like I wanted that Lataji kind of a voice and we got that voice which connects these modern contemporary guitars with Lataji’s voice in the alaap of ‘Teri Meri Kahani’ which is the theme.”
He concluded by saying, “Once you become a star and get so much love then you have to be prepared for this side also. I think from where she comes, I don’t know whether she is prepared or not. But eventually, she has become a star and a celebrity.”
Ranu got the opportunity after her video singing Lata Mangeshkar’s Ek Pyaar Ka Nagma at the Ranaghat Railway went viral. Things changed overnight for Ranu but seem like she couldn't handle the fame well.
