Born in 1978, in Calcutta, Rani Mukherjee has graced the silver screen since she’s 18 years old. Known for her beauty as well as her distinctive husky raspy voice, she has been the IT girl in Indian cinema until pretty recently. Her break-through role by which she will be always lovingly remembered was in Karan Johar’s directorial debut, the wildly successful Kuch Kuch Hota Hai.
From there on her career took the stellar path. Chori Chori, Chalte Chalte, Kal Ho Naa Ho, Kabhi Kushi Kabhi Gham are only a few of the wonderful films in which she delighted us with her charm and warmth. She is a natural in front of the camera and just as beguiling now as she was 20 years ago. I hope some good roles will come her way.
Talaash is already looming at the horizon, where she will play alongside Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor. Genre mystery, with illustrous writers like Zoya Akhtar and Anurag Kashyap, it could just catapult her back into the limelight and front-covers of magazines.
She’ll be also starring alongside the Malayalam movie star Prithviraj in Aiyaa, another movie co-produced and written by the man [ whose yearbook, if there was one, was signed most likely insomniac] Anurag Kashyap, directed by Sachin Kundalkar.
So for all the Rani Mukherjee fans, who deplored her scarce appearances of late or some not so impressive movies she was part in, this promises to be a good year!
chalte chalte… loved the movie xcept for the lil geographic screw-up (driving from Mykonos to Athens, without drowning)
