When Rani was 16 her family uprooted and moved back to India. At first she felt out of her element with the contrasting underdeveloped Bombay but quickly adapted and fell in love with India. Throughout her teens, Rani enjoyed the everyday life and culture of Bombay. At the age of 21 she completed her Bachelors of Commerce degree from the University of Mumbai with a distinction. She later earned a Masters of Commerce degree from the University of Mumbai. In 2007, Rani came to America and studied finance at Pace University in New York and earned an MBA in Finance.
