Rani Mukerji (Bengali: , Hindi: ???? ???????) born on March 21, 1978, is a six-time Filmfare Award-winning Indian film actress who appears in Bollywood films.

Making her acting debut with Raja Ki Aayegi Baraat (1996), Mukerji had her first commercial success with Karan Johar's romance Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (1998), her biggest commercial success so far, and won a Filmfare Best Supporting Actress Award for her performance. She later starred in many films, most of which fared below expectations. She returned her success with Saathiya (2002), which was commercially and critically successful. In 2004, her performances in the hit Hum Tum and the critically acclaimed Yuva earned her the Best Actress and the Best Supporting Actress awards at the Filmfare, making her the first actress to win two major awards in the same year, a feat she accomplished at many other award ceremonies. She received unanimous praise for her role as a deaf-blind girl in the film Black (2005), as well as many awards for her memorable performance.

She has been part of several commercially successful films and has delivered a myriad of critically acclaimed performances, establishing herself as one of the most successful actresses in Bollywood.

Career

Early work

While in school at the age of 14, Mukerji did a cameo role in her father's Bengali film Biyar Phool (1992). In 1996 she played the protagonist of Raja Ki Aayegi Baraat (1996). When the film was unsuccessful at the box office, Mukerji returned to college to complete her education.

Breakthrough

Mukerji's first release in 1998 was Ghulam opposite Aamir Khan, which did very well at the box office.Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (1998) came next, starring Shahrukh Khan and Kajol. The movie was a blockbuster, and for her role in it she received her first Filmfare Award in the Best Supporting Actress category.

After this she signed on several projects. Unfortunately, most of the movies did not do well at the box office. However, Badal was one of the highest grossing films of 2000.

The year also had her in the lead role of Mujhse Dosti Karoge! (2002) opposite Hrithik Roshan which was her first film with India's biggest production house: Yash Raj Films. Although, the movie did not do well in India, it generated great business overseas, especially in the United Kingdom.Mukerji's next release was Saathiya where she played a medical student who deals with the tensions and discontent of married life. The movie was amongst the top five grossing movies of the year. The film was critically appreciated.

Success

In 2003, her movie Chalte Chalte opposite Shah Rukh Khan was a hit.She received various nominations in the "Best Actress" category at all award ceremonies.

In 2004, Mukerji's performance in Yuva was critically acclaimed,[11] and won her the Filmfare Best Supporting Actress Award; the movie did not do well at the box office. Her next film was Hum Tum, which was commercially successful and also won her the Filmfare Best Actress Award that year.Her last film that year, Yash Chopra's Veer-Zaara, was the top grossing movie of the year.Mukerji's performance as a Pakistani lawyer in the love saga was critically acclaimed and earned her several awards.

In 2005, Mukerji starred in four high-profile films: Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Black, Shaad Ali's Bunty Aur Babli, Amol Palekar's Paheli and Ketan Mehta's The Rising. Mukerji received critical acclaim for her performance in Black for which she collected many trophies in the category of "Best Actress" at various award ceremonies. When Bhansali first came to Mukerji with the offer, she turned it down. Mukerji stated that she was not confident enough to play such a role as she had no knowledge on the deaf and blind. Once the director put faith in her, she agreed to do it and intensely studied sign language with professionals. To prepare for her role in Black, she had to go through six to seven months of training at the Helen Keller Institute in Mumbai. Her next release, Bunty Aur Babli, surfaced as one of the biggest hits of the year, simultaneously becoming her fourth successive hit.

Mukerji was offered the lead role in Hollywood film, The Namesake but owing to clashing dates with Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna, she could not commit to Mira Nair's project.Mukerji had two releases in 2006. The first was Karan Johar's Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna, the film opened to mixed reviews but emerged as the most successful movie ever overseas. Mukerji's next release was B.R. Chopra's Baabul. An unprecedented Rs. 4 crore was paid to Mukerji for her role in the movie. Although much hyped, the movie did not do well at the box office in India but proved to be a hit overseas.

Mukerji's first release of 2007 was Ta Ra Rum Pum where she played a mother for the first time on celluloid.The movie was a semi-hit at the box office.

In recent times, Mukerji is collaborating with her brother to set up a Television studio.

Personal life

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. Her mother Krishna was a playback singer. Her brother Raja Mukherjee is a film producer, now turned director. Her maternal aunt, Debashree Roy, is a national award-winning Bengali film actress and her cousin Kajol is a popular Bollywood actress.

Mukerji is a trained Odissi dancer, and began learning the dance in the tenth grade. Mukerji studied at Maneckji Cooper High School in Juhu, and later enrolled at Mithibai College in Mumbai.

Gossip columnists have linked Mukerji to many industry figures, but she has strongly denied every single rumor of romance.Several gossip columns have also claimed that she is regularly in feud with some of the Bollywood actors and actresses, but Mukerji has denied this.

Mukerji changed the English transliteration of her surname from Mukherjee to Mukerji several years ago. At the time, it was reported that she did this for numerological reasons. In 2006, Mukerji stated that numerology was not a concern; her name had been put down as Mukerji on her passport, and she wanted to be consistent.


Controversies

In June 2005, Mukerji was widely criticized following the publication of an interview with British newspaper Desi Xpress. Mukerji was asked to name her idol and she replied, "Adolf Hitler". However, in an interview with Times Now a year later, she denied ever mentioning Hitler's name.

In November 2006, Mukerji was shooting a film in Varanasi when avid fans crowded the set. Security personnel beat the crowd back with sticks. A media storm followed as various groups insisted that Mukerji should have stopped the security guards. Mukerji later issued an apology.

Famous commitments

Later in 2007, one of Mukerji's sari's in Baabul, designed by Sabyasachi Mukherjee, was auctioned off at a charity dinner. The proceeds went towards a home for girls who live on the Howrah platforms.

Mukerji donated her prize money, her half-share of 50 lakh rupees from her 2007 appearance on Kaun Banega Crorepati with Preity Zinta, to the Holy Family Hospital. She said that this institution looks after children with heart problems which is a major setback in India.

Five years later, Temptations 2004 came along. It was the most successful Bollywood concert in its time. Mukerji performed alongside Shahrukh Khan, Saif Ali Khan, Preity Zinta, Arjun Rampal and Priyanka Chopra in nineteen stage shows across the globe.

Special events

In 2005, Mukerji was a guest of honour at a state dinner to greet General Pervez Musharraf in company of the Indian prime minister Manmohan Singh.

Laaga Chunari Mein Daag : A Sneak Peek
05th Sept 2007 22.00 IST
By Aparajita Ghosh

'Laaga Chunari Mein Daag' is an extraordinary story of a woman, her sacrifice, and her eventual fall from grace.

The movie, a Yashraj Films presentation, features a host of talented actors like Rani Mukherjee , Konkona Sen Sharma , Jaya Bachchan , Abhishek Bachchan , Kunal Kapoor and Anupam Kher .

Don't miss the movie's sneak peak (Slideshow) at Laaga Chunari Mein Daag .

Pradeep Sarkar , who made his directorial debut in 2005 with Parineeta , is the film's director.

At the centre of the story are two sisters, Natasha (Rani Mukherjee) and Chutki (Konkona Sen). Apparently, Jaya Bachchan plays their mother while Anupam Kher plays the patriarch of the household. Abhishek Bachchan is Rani's love interest and Kunal Kapoor is paired with Konkona Sen.

The happiness of a close-knit family in rural India is shattered by a sudden twist of fate. Faced with financial crisis, the family makes a tough choice.

The two sisters move to the city and discover that life in a metropolis is much different from the one in their rural home. From what follows, the lives of the two sisters are changed forever. Apparently, the story is about the elder sister's (Rani's) downward spiral into amoral life, into prostitution.

The movie has been shot in Varanasi and Bern (in Switzerland).

While shooting on the ghats of Varanasi, an unsavory incident happened when Rani's bodyguards roughed up a couple of mediapersons, fans and locals. This lead to a lot of criticism in the media, compelling Rani to apologize for the incident.

'Laaga Chunari Mein Daag' has music by Shantanu Moitra and lyrics by Swanand Kirkire. The story has been written by Aditya Chopra who is also the co-producer.

The movie is set to release on October 12.

Abid, Bollywood Trade News Network


After the under performance of TA RA RUM PUM and the shocking debacle of JHOOM BARABAR JHOOM, India's top production house, Yash Raj are back on their feet, thanks to the stupendous success of their off beat Shah Rukh Khan starrer, CHAK DE! INDIA.

Things are now looking brighter and better for Yash Raj, as the first (interesting and intriguing) trailors and the subsequent promos of their next release, LAAGA CHUNARI MEIN DAAG, is generating a keen interest among the cine-goers. In fact, the sparkling chemistry between the 'Rani' of Bollywood and the National Award winner Konkona Sen Sharma is to be seen to be believed. The dance number between the two is reminiscent of the DEVDAS number ('Dola Re') picturised on Madhuri and Aishwarya. Even their male counterparts, Kunal and Abhishek (who is in a special appearance) are looking fresh in their new get ups.

Reliable section of the trade feels that LAAGA CHUNARI MEIN DAAG boasts of all the ingredients Yash Raj are famous for (Indian theme, song and dance, family drama etc), and will be able to impress the audience.

We just wonder, if women power is the new success 'mantra' for Yash Raj, especially after CHAK DE! INDIA. And looking at their forthcoming ventures, LAAGA CHUNARI MEIN DAAG and AAJA NACHLE (that marks the return of the dancing queen Madhuri), we see more women-centric movies.
