Actress Rani Mukerji, who exchanged vows with Yash Raj Films (YRF) head honcho Aditya Chopra earlier this year, says she is currently enjoying “being married and doing nothing”. In an interview to Vogue India August 2015 issue, Rani has spoken about life post marriage, her choice of films and her future plans.
Rani, who has delivered powerful performances in films like No One Killed Jessica and Mardaani, credits three men, including her husband, for spotting her talent in her initial days.
“Yes, he (Aditya Chopra) did, and so did Shah Rukh (Khan). Aamir (Khan) recommended me to Mukesh Bhatt and Vikram Bhatt for ‘Ghulam‘ (released in 1998). These three men have been integral to my career,” said the actress.
She also recalled the time when filmmaker Karan Johar asked her to lose weight before “Kuch Kuch Hota Hai“.
“Karan is so hyper. If you see that scene today, where’s the weight? I was actually happy that I didn’t look like everyone else. Today, people think about it far more than we used to,” said the actress, whose film choices have changed as she feels that “it’s embarrassing for a 37-year-old to do the roles she did in her twenties.”
