Rani Mukherjee started her film career with 'Raja Ki Aayegi Baraat'. But he did not get that popularity from that film. During this time, Rani's 'Ghulam' was also released, in which she had a small role. Rani got recognition from the song 'Ae Kya Bolti Tu' from 'Ghulam'. In such a situation, during an interview, Rani Mukherjee shared an anecdote related to this film.

Rani Mukherjee said- Makers did not like my voice
'Ghulam' was released just a few months before 'Kuch Kuch Hota Hai'. For 'Ghulam', the makers had decided to bring a dubbing artist for Rani. Because the makers were not sure whether Rani's real voice would work for the film or not.

Rani Mukherjee said- My voice was not a normal sounding voice. My voice was different from others. So I think at that time, the makers did not want to take these bets on me. Because I had Aamir Khan with me in the film, who was already an established actor. Even 'Ghulam' director Vikram Bhatt had explained to me that he wanted to hire a dubbing artist only because he had heard from the edit room about my voice that this girl's voice was a little different.

Sridevi ji's voice was also dubbed in many films.
Rani Mukherjee shared that in those days it was very common for female actresses to have dubbing artists. Many actresses from the South worked in Hindi cinema, who did not have a strong command of the language. Especially Sridevi ji. Sridevi ji's voice was dubbed for many years, and she was my favorite actress.

I remember Aamir Khan told me – Rani, you know that your favorite actress Sridevi ji's voice was dubbed in many films. It doesn't matter. We have to do what is best for our film. At that time he was made a bad cop. This was a collective decision taken by the makers of the film. To be honest, I don't think he gave it much thought. The makers just wanted to play safe.

Karan Johar liked my voice a lot
Rani Mukherjee shared that Karan Johar was the first director who decided to retain her original voice and not dub it. When Karan came to know that Rani's voice was being dubbed by someone else, he was shocked. Rani told that perhaps the makers do not like my voice. Hearing this, Karan Johar said that he likes Rani's voice. He wanted to keep Rani's voice in the film 'Kuch Kuch Hota Hai'. Rani was very happy with this statement of Karan. He said- I am very happy that Karan, being Karan, took such a decision. Because even if my voice was dubbed in 'Kuch Kuch Hota Hai', it would have been very difficult to convince the other makers for my voice.
