Name : Rani Mukherjee
Birth date : March 21, 1978
Birth place : Bengal, India
Height : 5' 3
Occupation : Actress, Model Debut Film : Raja Ki Aayegi Baaraat
Family : She comes from a film-clan family of Bengali origin.
Her father, Ram Mukherjee is a retired director. Her mother Krishna used to be a playback singer, while her brother Raja Mukherjee is a film producer. Her maternal aunt is Debashree Roy. The popular Bollywood actress, Kajol, is her second cousin. Career : She began her film career with the Bengali film Biyer Phool. Her first Hindi film was Raja Ki Aayegi Baraat (1996), which did not do well at the box office. However, her next two releases - Ghulam and Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (1998) - were India-wide hits.
Achievements : For the latter she received her first Filmfare Award in the Best Supporting Actress category.
Mukherji was signed on for a great many movies after these successes. Unfortunately, most of them did average business at the box office. The commercial and critical success of Saathiya in 2002 is widely believed to have revived her career. Mukerji has been romantically linked with actors such as Govinda, Aamir Khan, Abhishek Bachchan and most recently, director Aditya Chopra.
Rani was proud to be associated with actor-director Kamal Haasan and was thrilled to have his film 'Hey Ram' in her lap. But the film did not propel her career to the extent she had expected. The relationship of Rani with Govinda had become quiet a hot topic of discussion amongst colleagues and the press. The Yash Chopra production 'Mujhse Dosti Karoge' flopped but her acting is very much appreciated in the film. A series of unsuccessful runs have not dampened her giggly self. She continues to be sprightly and seen in popular ads, the Fanta ad being the latest. Recently seen in "Yuva," "Hum Tum", she's currently busy filming several films including "1857: The Rising" and "Bajirao Mastani." Rani got the devastating looks, charm and a beautiful face the one thing that seperates her from the great and successful actress. In a span of 5 years she has worked with all the top actors and top class producers and the directors.
