Rani Mukherjee Latest Photos :-

Rani Mukherjee Date of birth is 21 March 1978, Calcutta, West Bengal, India . Her father, Ram Mukherjee, is a retired director and one of the founders of "Filmalaya Studios". Her mother, Krishna Mukherjee, was a playback singer. Her brother, Raj Mukherjee is a film producer, now turned director. Her maternal aunt, Debashree Roy, was a Bengali-film actress and her cousin, Kajol, is a Bollywood actress.

After doing a short appearance for the first time in her father’s Bengali film, Biyer Phool (1992), Rani made her acting debut five years later as the protagonist of Raja Ki Aayegi Baraat (1997). Rani tasted success with the 1998 film, Ghulam, opposite Aamir Khan. The song Aati Kya Khandala made Mukerji popular among the masses, earning her the nickname of the ‘Khandala Girl’. Karan Johar’s directorial debut, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, co-starring Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol, followed in the same year. The movie was a massive hit.

By the beginning of the new decade, Mukerji wanted to avoid being categorised as a "standard Hindi film heroine" and thus decided to portray more challenging roles in addition to the archetypical glamorous female lead.However, none of her film releases in the year 2000 was particularly notable. In Badal and Bichhoo, two male-centric action dramas (both featuring Bobby Deol in the lead), Rani Mukherjee played roles that were met with little acclaim from the critics. A supporting role in Kamal Hassan's bilingual film Hey Ram proved more rewarding. The film was a partly fictionalised account of Mahatma Gandhi's assassination and Mukerji portrayed the character of Aparna Ram, a devoted Bengali school teacher who is raped and murdered during communal riots in Calcutta. The controversial subject matter of Hey Ram led to poor box office earnings, but the film was critically acclaimed and selected as India’s official entry to the Oscars that year.Mukerji found no success in her next two releases, the comedy Hadh Kar Di Aapne and the romance Kahin Pyaar Na Ho Jaaye.
