Bollywood star Rani Mukerji is celebrating her 44th birthday today. On her big day, the actor shared how she is looking forward to picking more exciting projects and find movies that are about ‘hope and love’. Sharing that her journey in cinema has been ‘exhilarating’, she hopes it remains the same in the coming years.
“I have been fortunate enough to collaborate with some of the best minds in the form of directors, producers, actors and technicians who have pushed me to excel on-screen and reinvent myself every single time. I want to continue doing that with every project because I always want to push my boundaries to see where I land. I always knew that my journey will be tough but I sailed through the last 25 years with the audience’s love by my side and my hard work and perseverance,” she shared in a statement.
Rani Mukerji further spoke about how she never accepted to be typecast or fitted in a mould. She shared that she’s always tried to be part of meaningful films with a very strong female protagonist at the centre of the story. The actor added, “I wanted to be a part of good films with important stories about Indian women. There have been times where I have been blessed with films that have worked and some that missed to make a mark with the audience but I think that’s the best part about our industry. You win some and lose some and that helps you to grow from strength to strength to carve a special place as an individual artist in a cutthroat industry like ours.”
The actor next up has Mrs Chatterjee vs Norway in her kitty, a film which she says is very ‘close to her heart’. She added that she hopes it will resonate with every Indian the way it did for her and her team.
Calling it an ‘incredible story of human resilience’ Rani added, “I’m very emotionally invested in this story as it connected with me as an actor and a mother. These are stories that need to be told! I really hope my next few years in cinema are studded with more brilliant scripts. I am hungry for them because these films not only entertain audiences but also deliver a great message to people. I want to do movies that are about hope and love.”
