Rani Mukerji might be enjoying her new phase of life post marriage to Yash Raj Films honcho Aditya Chopra and motherhood, but she deserves every bit of this phase. After all, she has given us enough inspiring films and performances to last a long time. The Bengali beauty turns 39 today, hence a very warm and prosperous birthday to her. Now, let’s talk about why she is the true Mardaani of Bollywood.
In a career spanning over two decades, Rani has earned the tag of being the real queen of Bollywood. She might have debuted with Raja Ki Aayegi Baraat, but a closer look at its plot and we realize she already kicked off her Bollywood innings playing a rape victim and putting up a brave fight against crime. She repeated it with Mehndi, which highlighted the menace of dowry. Though both the films failed to do well, it surely gave the trade gurus a hint that Rani had her preferences clear while signing projects.
In her movie No One Killed Jessica, she was seen credited for unleashing a wave of women empowered plots in Bollywood. We are talking about Rani Mukerji and it is high time we dust our memories and give a standing ovation to him, for taking up challenging roles, in the times when female leads were still considered only beautiful faces to ignite the silver screen which certainly include the film Mardani.
