Rani Mukerji calls herself a foodie and is thrilled that her daughter has inherited her taste in food. Citing the example of just concluded Durga Puja, in a recent interview, she told us, “My daughter has developed a fondness for tea, which is significant in Bengali culture. She tasted her first tea in a Durga Puja Pandal when she was three, so she associates the festival with the joy of savouring tea. As a child, I cherished the bhog aspect of the Puja, exploring the various stalls which had sarees, food delicacies and staying up late for the festivities. It was a tradition to go to Shivaji Park on Navami with my uncles, aunts, cousins to see other Puja pandals and explore food stalls in these pandals. For a kid to be awake till that late was fascinating for me. Eating fish fry, mutton chops and all those Bengali delicacies, is something that I have always enjoyed.”

She explained, “My daughter seems to have inherited my love for food. Like me, she has also connected with the 'kadak chai' in a ‘Kulhad.’ She loves when everybody dresses up. This year she especially got us to call for a saree for herself from Kolkata and she is very excited to wear it. As little girls, I think they like to emulate their mothers at a very young age. She likes the fact that I am going to be wearing a saree and the fact that she is also going to be wearing one is exciting for her.”
