She has been around in Bollywood for over two decades and has been touted as one of India’s finest actresses. Yet, Rani Mukerji admits harbouring doubts, because she believes if there is no self-doubt one cannot move ahead in life.
“It (self-doubt) is part of your being. If you don’t have self-doubt you can’t move ahead in life. You need to have some degree of insecurity or self-doubt, and you just can’t be like you are the king of the world and do whatever comes your way,” Rani told IANS.
Questioning yourself is important, stresses the actress.
“You have to have a little sense of questioning to basically try and achieve and keep achieving your goal. That can only happen when you doubt yourself a bit and push yourself harder towards your goal,” she said.
Rani made her Bollywood debut with the 1996 social drama “Raja Ki Aayegi Baraat“. She was later seen in films such as “Ghulam”, “Kuch Kuch Hota Hai”, “Saathiya”, “Hum Tum”, “Veer-Zaara“, “Black”, “Bunty Aur Babli”, “Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna“, “No One Killed Jessica”, “Mardaani” and “Hichki”.
If the 41-year-old actress has been tagged one India’s best actresses, she doesn’t find the label pressuring. Rather, she hails it as a responsibility.
“When someone gives you a tag like that, it is for you to realise that with it comes with a huge responsibility because you have to work doubly hard. You have to pave the way to do better than your last work. I am blessed to have the love and adulation of the audiences over the last two decades. Without their support I wouldn’t have been the star that I am,” she said.
“It is important for me as an actor to actually not take undue advantage of the fact that they like me, but take the love and adulation and work hard towards not letting it go.”
Does stardom come with a price tag? “(In) this case, the price is in everything because when you get busy in any profession there is a price you have to pay, where you sacrifice a bit of your personal life. But I think it’s not such a big price to pay because eventually this is acting. A doctor’s job is much harder because they are on call 24×7,” she replied.
She added: “I think every job comes with a certain price and people who love their jobs happily pay the price.”
It’s been over a year since Rani has was last seen on the big screen. She’s now gearing up for the release of her next, “Mardaani 2“, where she will be seen reprising her role of the fierce lady cop Shivani Shivaji Roy.
Rani isn’t nervous that the sequel might draw comparisons with her original “Mardaani“, which released in 2014 and was widely applauded.
“It doesn’t make me nervous, but it definitely makes me anxious. I am just happily anxious to know that the trailer has been received very well. That’s the testament to the fact that the love for Shivani Shivaji Roy has been there all this while and they are liking the story, the ‘Mardaani’ feel and the thriller vibe,” she said.

Actress Mrunal Thakur, who wooed the audience with her performances in movies like “Super 30” and “Batla House“, will now be seen as female lead in Shahid Kapoor’s “Jersey“.
“Jersey” is a Hindi remake of the Telugu hit of the same name.
The Hindi version will be directed by Gowtam Tinnanuri, who also helmed the original movie.
Excited about sharing screen space with Shahid in Jersey, Mrunal said: “I’m super excited to play the lead opposite Shahid in ‘Jersey’. When I saw the original film I was bowled over by its passionate emotional journey.
“It felt like I had lived a full lifetime of experiences in those two plus hours. So deep was the affect of the film on me that I couldn’t get it out of my heart the whole night so I immediately watched it again the next day, I can’t wait for Hindi audiences to experience a similar impact!”
Looking at the original version, Mrunal’s character will be the anchor to Shahid’s, who goes on an emotional journey against all odds to play cricket for the country in his mid 30’s, when it’s time for most people to retire from competitive sports.
On casting Mrunal, Gowtam said: “After Shahid came on board, I only had Mrunal on my mind for the lead opposite him, I loved her performance and confidence in ‘Super 30’ opposite Hrithik Roshan and felt she’s perfectly fit for the part in Jersey and will do full justice to the role.”
Produced by Allu Aravind, Aman Gill, Dil Raju, the film is releasing on August 28, 2020.
