It's time to rejoice as the impeccable
queen of Bollywood turns a year older today. Please join us in celebrating Rani
birthday, as we take a glance at her career journey in
Indian Cinema thus far.
Mukerji was born into the famous Mukherji-Samarth
family on March 21st, to director Ram Mukherji and playback
Krishna Mukherji in Mumbai. She is now married to her long time beau
Producer, director, screenwriter and distributor Aditya Chopra, or
rather the owner of the vast Chopra Empire, Yash Raj Films (YRF).
Mukerji's name is now successfully listed amongst the top notch
celebrities of Bollywood. She first faced the camera in her father's
Bengali film Biyer Phool in 1992.
After rejecting numerous offers because she didn't want to become an actress, the
Bengali beauty made her Bollywood debut with Raja Ki Aayegi Baraat (1997) upon her mother's insistence. The
movie failed miserably at the box office however, Mukerji was applauded for her
portrayal of character Mala. Mukerji tasted her first huge commercial success with Karan
Johar's Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (1998)
co-starring good friend Shah Rukh Khan and cousin Kajol.
The new millennium proved to be quite
prosperous for the ace actress with praiseworthy performances in Har Dil Jo Pyar Karega (2000), Chori Chori Chupke Chupke (2001), Mujhse Dosti Karoge (2002), Saathiya (2002), Chalte Chalte (2003), Yuva
(2004), Hum Tum (2004), Veer Zaara (2004), Black (2005) and Bunty Aur
Babli (2005). She faced a slight set back in her career but marked her
return with powerful films like No One
Killed Jessica (2011), Talaash
(2012) and her most recent stint, Mardaani (2014). Mukerji
has no scheduled releases this year.
