Rani Mukerji is an Indian film actress who works in Hindi movies. Born to the Mukherjee-Samarth family, Mukerji never harbored any ambitions to become an actress, but eventually joined films on the insistence of her parents.
She made her acting debut with Raja Ki Aayegi Baraat (1997), and subsequently had her first, and still biggest commercial success with Karan Johar's romance Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (1998), which won her a Filmfare Award for Best Supporting Actress.
She later starred in several films that fared below expectations, but in 2002 she tasted success with the critically acclaimed drama Saathiya for which she received numerous awards and nominations, including her first Filmfare Critics Award for Best Actress.
In 2004, her performances in the hit romantic comedy Hum Tum and the critically acclaimed Yuva earned her the Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress awards, respectively at the 50th Filmfare Awards, making her the first actress to win two major awards in the same year.
She later received unanimous praise for her portrayal of a blind, deaf and mute woman in Black (2005), for which she garnered numerous awards, including two more Filmfare Awards: Best Actress and Actress - Critics.
She went on to play leading roles in the comedy Bunty Aur Babli (2005) and the adult drama Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna (2006), both of which emerged as major commercial successes in India as well as overseas.
Mukerji thus established herself as a leading actress of Hindi cinema. She then featured in a series of commercially unsuccessful films, mostly under the Yash Raj Films banner, before re-inventing herself with Raj Kumar Gupta's semi-biographic thriller No One Killed Jessica (2011).
During the course of her career, she has received seven Filmfare Awards, among thirteen nominations.
In addition to acting in films, Mukerji has featured as a talent judge for Sony Entertainment Television's reality show Dance Premier League.
Despite constant speculation, she remains guarded about her personal life and has consequently been termed a recluse by certain sections of the media. Mukerji currently lives in Juhu with her parents.
