There are a lot of princesses in B Town, but only one queen.
Rani Mukerji is a quintessential beauty. She is one actress who ruled the roost, one actress who has done and seen it all.
Rani started her career with a rather forgettable 'Raja Ki Aayegi Baraat'. The movie sank without a trace, but Rani managed to grab eyeballs with her gutsy performance. A couple of other duds followed. But Rani struck gold with 'Kuch Kuch Hota Hai' (1998).
Rani's portrayal of Tina was widely appreciated, and gave Rani a strong foothold in the industry. After that she appeared in a lot of A-list movies, that included 'Ghulam', 'Har Dil Jo Pyar Karega', 'Saathiya' and 'Chalte Chalte'.
Her career reached its peak in 2004, when she won both the Filmfare Award For Best Actress, and Filmfare Award For Best Supporting Actress, for 'Hum Tum' and 'Veer Zaara' respectively.
In the year 2005, Rani Mukerji gave her most critically acclaimed performance in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's 'Black'. The following years, she followed up her success with films like 'Bunty aur Babli', and 'Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna'.
Rani Mukerji continued to do roles which everyone agreed were very different from what the other Bollywood actresses did.
The year 2007 saw her downfall slightly, when 'Tara Rum Pum' bombed at the box office. Her career would never rise to the same heights again.
She later tried making comebacks, with films like 'Laaga Chunari Mein Daag' (2007), 'Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic' (2008), and 'Dil Bole Hadippa', none of which were successful.
Her actual successful comeback happened with 'No One Killed Jessica' (2011). Post that, she has acted in films like 'Aiyya' and 'Talaash', which has given her little sustainable success.
She continues to dazzle us, with her beauty and acting prowess. Her latest film 'Mardaani' released last week and has both the people and critics appreciating her portrayal of a tough, no-nonsense cop.
