We have all seen the fierce and poised Rani Mukerji in movies like Hey Ram, Yuva, Mardaani franchise, Hichki and extra. However there was a time, Rani performed the quintessential Bollywood heroine who danced round in dreamy chiffon sarees, and her mushy eyes did the speaking, and with each tear she shed, her audiences felt just a little extra for her characters. Rani, with her movies has additionally given us a fast escape from the realities of life and we have been lured into referring to her vulnerability.
Today, on her forty third birthday, we revisit a few of her most liked characters from a few of the greatest rom-coms ever made in Bollywood.
Tina from Kuch Kuch Hota Hai
Rani had given two out-of-the-box performances (Raja Ki Aayegi Baarat and Ghulam) even earlier than she performed Tina in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. Tina, nonetheless, gained our hearts like by no means earlier than; she was stunning, weak and harmless, but in addition loving, caring and emotional.
Not solely her character traits, but in addition her trend made a brand new wave for college-going women. Her entry scene in the movie, carrying orange co-ords, and her tune sequence in the shimmery silver costume made her an prompt diva, and all the women wished to decorate up like her. Tina put Rani on the map, after doing KKHH, there was no going again, Rani did a string of romantic comedies right here on.
Maya from Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna
Nobody could make infidelity look extra ‘real’ than Maya from Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna. Maya actually loves Rishi, performed by Abhishek Bachchan, however by no means as passionately as she does Dev, performed by Shah Rukh Khan. Her mushy kohl eyes and an emotional manner made her look extra weak than ever. In my perception, this was amongst the few events when a dishonest spouse was not proven as an evil “house-breaker”, however in an empathetic gentle in a Bollywood movie.
Rhea from Hum Tum
With the very bubbly and then very critical Rhea in Hum Tum, Rani virtually portrayed each part of a girl’s life. Rhea gained hearts when she walks away from Karan, performed by Saif Ali Khan, when he asks her to marry him solely as a result of he thinks he had taken benefit of her, this actually made the movie stand out. Rani’s portrayal of Rhea and her chase for friendship and love was actually like a breath of recent at the time.
Priya from Chalte Chalte
Rani who performed Priya in Chalte Chalte is a hardworking designer, her character sketch gave the impression to be the solely authentic factor in the movie — she is image of poise and sophistication and craves emotional sustenance. Besides her character’s character, her look went on to grow to be well-known too.
Babli from Bunty Aur Babli
There is a purpose why the makers of Bunty Aur Babli are making Bunty Aur Babli 2 with Rani as soon as once more. Babli is OTT bubbly, however she is sensible, and her partnership with Bunty, performed by Abhishek Bachchan, is one in every of the best joys of watching the pair on-screen. Her comedian timing and dance steps in the movie are implausible, and with Babli, Rani proved her versatility, she might do romantic dramas, comedies, and critical movies, all with tremendous ease.
Happy Birthday Rani Mukerji!
