BOLLYWOOD: Rani Mukerji, who made her comeback with ‘Hichki’ last year, which garnered immense appreciation from the critics and audience around the globe, revealed that she is handpicking films that not only strike a social conversation but also set the box office on fire.
“I’m grateful and humbled that Hichki won the hearts of audiences in India, in China and worldwide. I’m picking films that appeal to my heart, that appeal to me as an actor,” said Rani.
The actor, who played the role of an aspiring teacher with Tourette syndrome, believed that she was lucky to get such unique roles.
“I think it’s my good fortune that I have been able to select scripts out of the ones that I have got and I am fortunate that the directors and the writers have thought of me to play these characters. I have been lucky to have received the right script at the right time. I have enjoyed telling a story to the audience because if you are making a socially relevant film, we are making it for the audience,” added the 41-year-old actor.
‘Mardaani 2’ marks the directorial debut of Gopi Puthran, the writer of the first film. The release date of the film is yet to be announced.
