About Rani Mukerji

  • Rani Mukerji ([r?:ni? m?kh?rd?i?]; born 21 March 1978) is an Indian film actress.
  • One of the most popular and highest-paid Hindi film actresses in the 2000s, she has received several awards, including seven Filmfare Awards.
  • Her roles have been cited in the media as a significant departure from previous screen portrayals of Indian women. Although Mukerji was born into the Mukherjee-Samarth family, in which her parents and relatives were members of the Indian film industry, she did not aspire to pursue a career in film.
  • However, while still a teenager she dabbled with acting by playing a supporting role in her father's Bengali language film Biyer Phool (1996) and accepted a leading role in the 1996 social drama Raja Ki Aayegi Baraat on the insistence of her mother.
  • She then began a full-time career in films and the 1998 action drama Ghulam was her first commercial success.
  • She gained wider recognition for a supporting role in the romance Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (1998).
  • The year 2002 marked a turning point for Mukerji when she was cast by Yash Raj Films as the star of the drama Saathiya. By 2004, Mukerji had established herself as a leading actress of Bollywood with roles in the romantic comedy Hum Tum and the dramas Yuva and Veer-Zaara.
  • She achieved further success for portraying a deaf, blind and mute woman in the acclaimed drama Black (2005), a con woman in Bunty Aur Babli (2005) and an unhappily married woman in Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna (2006).
  • Mukerji then collaborated with Yash Raj Films on several unsuccessful films which led critics to bemoan her choice of roles.
  • The semi-biographical thriller No One Killed Jessica (2011), in which she played a headstrong journalist, proved to be her first box office hit in four years.
  • She followed it by starring in the successful thrillers Talaash: The Answer Lies Within (2012) and Mardaani (2014), and the comedy-drama Hichki (2018).
  • The latter emerged as her highest-grossing release. In addition to acting in films, Mukerji is involved with several humanitarian causes and is vocal about issues faced by women and children.
  • She has participated in concert tours and stage shows, and featured as a talent judge for the 2009 reality show Dance Premier League.
  • Reticent to discuss her personal life in public, Mukerji is married to filmmaker Aditya Chopra, with whom she has a daughter.
