About Rani Mukherjee

Rani Mukerji born Rani Mukherjee on 21 March 1978 is an Indian film actress who works in Hindi movies. In the course of her film career, she has received seven Filmfare Awards, among thirteen nominations.

Making her acting debut with Raja Ki Aayegi Baraat (1997), Mukerji had her first, and still biggest commercial success with Karan Johar's romance Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (1998), and won a Filmfare Best Supporting Actress Award for her performance in the film. She later starred in several films that fared below expectations, but in 2002 she tasted success with the critically acclaimed drama Saathiya, for which she received numerous awards and nominations, including her first Filmfare Critics Award for Best Actress.

In 2004, her performances in the hit Hum Tum and the critically acclaimed Yuva earned her the Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress awards, respectively at the 50th Filmfare Awards, making her the first actress to win two major awards in the same year. She later received unanimous praise for her portrayal of a blind, deaf and mute woman in Black (2005), for which she garnered numerous awards, including two more Filmfare Awards: Best Actress and Best Actress - Critics. She went on to play leading roles in the comedy Bunty Aur Babli (2005) and the adult drama Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna (2006), both of which were commercial successes and fetched Mukerji Best Actress nominations at the Filmfare Awards ceremony. Mukerji thus established herself as a leading actress of Hindi cinema. She then featured in a series of commercially unsuccessful films before re-inventing herself with Raj Kumar Gupta's semi-biographic thriller No One Killed Jessica (2011).

Mukerji comes from a film-oriented family of Bengali origin. Her father Ram Mukherjee is a retired director and one of the founders of Filmalaya Studios while her mother Krishna was a playback singer. Her brother Raja Mukherjee is a film producer turned director. Her maternal aunt, Debashree Roy, is a Bengali film actress and her cousin, Kajol, is a popular Bollywood actress. Another cousin of hers, Ayan Mukerji is the writer and director of Wake Up Sid (2009). As part of a tradition, the Mukherjee family celebrates the festival of Durga Puja at Santacruz, Mumbai every year. Mukerji, being a religious person, takes part in the festivities with her entire family.

Mukerji is a trained Odissi dancer and began learning the dance in the tenth grade.[16] She was schooled at Maneckji Cooper High School in Juhu, and later enrolled at Mithibai College in Mumbai. Despite her background, she was never interested in becoming an actress, stating that, “I never thought I had any talent to be in films so it never occurred to me that I could be an actor.” However, she decided to join films on an experimental basis, on the insistence of her parents.
