In an interview Rani said: “No One Killed Jessica, Black, Mardaani, Hichki, etc. are some of the favourite films of my career because they resonated with who I am as a person in real life and my belief in how a woman should always be perceived. For me, a woman is a pillar of strength for her family, community, husband, child and I do feel we don’t celebrate women enough.”
As for the future of Bollywood, Rani Mukerji is delighted to see the tides changing, with the new generation of actors picking up scripts with female protagonists. Rani adds: “I can’t tell you how thrilled I’m as a woman and as an artist. I have silently tried to do my best to bring out powerful women on screen and impact the psyche of people through their life. I get so happy when I see the young actors choosing to do gritty, women-centric films that give out the correct message about women to society.”
