Rani Mukerji opened up about her decision to become an actress and how she listened to constructive criticisms when it came to her career
Bollywood actor Rani Mukerji is all set to dazzle on the big-screen yet again with her upcoming movie ‘Mrs Chatterjee Vs Norway’. Over the years she has made a niche for herself by starring in powerful women-centric roles. Having made her debut in 1996 with a Bengali movie Biyer Phool and later in Bollywood with Raja Ki Aayegi Baraat, the critically-acclaimed actress recently opened up about why she started doing movies.
During a recent interaction with Pinkvilla, Rani opened up about the time when making her career as an actress accidentally saved her family financially.

The 44-year-old actress said, “When I grew up, an offer came my way. My mother very politely put it to me that try it, if it doesn’t work for you, you can go back to studies. Maybe I didn’t realise at that time the situation in my family was such that there was a need of financial help. But I didn’t think of this much as this. No child thinks their parents aren’t doing well.” ALSO READ: Rani Mukerji To Inaugurate 28th Kolkata International Film Festival With West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee
