Little Rani got exchanged in the hospital
She said, “It so happened I think when babies are born they’ve have been given something… tags. But apparently the nurse had taken me to do some change and then got me back and when she got back the baby to my mom, my mom was talking to one of my uncles. So they were chatting and my mother saw the baby and said 'Oh my god! this is not my baby'.”
Rani’s mother’s surety
Simi then asked as to how Rani’s mother could be so sure? Rani replied, “Because the baby didn't have light eyes.” Well, it was a few days after Rani’s birth and it was the way the other baby looked, which made Rani’s mother sure that this is not her baby.

“This is not my baby and the nurse said, ‘No no this is your baby’ and my uncle was like how can it not be your baby, it must be your baby, just look at it carefully all babies look alike when they are born. Mom said no she had light eyes, I'm going to see where she is and she in that state went out in each and every room to see if I'm there and I was finally in one Sardarji's room who already had some six daughters and this was the seventh one.”
How little Rani got back to her mother
She said, “So he refused to give me back to my mother. My mother fought and said no no that is my child… that is my child and then finally they said check the tag and luckily that baby had a tag… I mean I had the tag so my mother's name was there on it. So I got back to my mother.”
Rani Mukerji or Rani Kaur?
“I’d a dramatic birth. Thank God! And I do look like my parents so luckily I am…” Simi interrupted Rani and jested that had latter’s mother not sought her out, she would have been in Ludhiana or somewhere. To which Rani laughed and said,“Yeah! It would have been fun, Rani Kaur.”
