Bollywood actress Rani Mukerji has given us some of the most beloved female protagonists on screen thanks to her outstanding acting prowess in films like Black, Hichki, Mardaani, Nobody Killed Jessica, Veer Zaara, Hum Tum, Yuva, among many others. On Women’s Day, Rani Mukerji spoke about how women can ensure that they support more women in all departments of filmmaking in India’s clearly male-led film industry.
Rani says, “During my journey in the Hindi film industry, I realized that the power lies with women to change the perception of how women are portrayed in all aspects of cinema. We need to support each other, root each other and empower each other to make the road smoother for others who want to make a name for themselves in the man-led industry. We need to celebrate each other and our successes collectively to make sure we are all heard even more.
Rani considers herself lucky to have the opportunity to bring these fantastic women to life. She says, “As an artist, I have had the chance to play some truly fantastic empowered women on screen and experience their inspiring stories up close. Like me, many actresses over the generations have tried to change the conversation about how women are portrayed onscreen. I am fortunate that thanks to my films, I had the opportunity to change the conversation about female representation in India. “
Rani’s last two films Hichki and Mardaani were fleeting blows. She wants to continue to find such brilliant scripts in order to represent women on screen well. She says, “Throughout my career, I have made conscious decisions to portray strong female characters on screen who have set an example for society. I chose to play female characters who can command respect, because of their uninhibited lifestyle choices. In the future, too, I will be inclined to choose projects that have a powerful story to tell through the eyes of a bold, upright woman who is unafraid to voice her opinions and has confidence in herself.
