I’m enjoying being married and doing nothing: Rani Mukerji
‘For now, I’m enjoying being married and doing nothing.’ As for five years from now, she wants to see herself doing some ‘kickass films’ and having ‘lovely babies beside me as I go to the set’. Rani, who has delivered powerful performances in films like No One Killed Jessica and Mardaani, credits three men, including her husband, for spotting her talent in her initial days.
“Yes, he (Aditya Chopra) did, and so did Shah Rukh (Khan). Aamir (Khan) recommended me to Mukesh Bhatt and Vikram Bhatt for Ghulam. These three men have been integral to my career,” said the actor. She also recalled the time when filmmaker Karan Johar asked her to lose weight before Kuch Kuch Hota Hai.
“Karan is so hyper. If you see that scene today, where’s the weight? I was actually happy that I didn’t look like everyone else. Today, people think about it far more than we used to,” said the actress, whose film choices have changed as she feels that “it’s embarrassing for a 37-year-old to do the roles she did in her twenties. I’m not delusional. I’m conscious of what the audience wants to see me in,” she stressed.
