Rani Mukerji opens up about people pulling her down for her voice

By: Mohnish Singh

Rani Mukerji, who began her acting career with Raja Ki Aayegi Baraat in 1996, has been entertaining audiences for close to three decades now. When she started out, a lot of people doubted if she would manage to have a long inning in Bollywood because of her husky voice. However, she went on to prove everyone wrong and established herself as one of the most sought-after actresses in the industry.

Last seen in Bunty Aur Babli 2 (2021), Mukerji is presently waiting for the release of her next film Mrs Chatterjee Vs Norway.

During an interview with an entertainment portal, the actress shared how she only accepted constructive criticism and paid no heed to criticism that came with an agenda during her career.

“If I really believed what people thought about my voice, then my voice would not have been loved by millions of people,” she said. “If I hadn’t put my foot down and dubbed my own films…people today recognise me by my voice. Not many people thought that my voice could become so special.”

She added, “If I start looking at that, I will have to start living for other people rather than myself.”

She further said, “If there is a criticism which can be constructive, I will take that. But if there is a criticism only because there is agenda behind it, you can understand it and you don’t need to pay heed to it.”

Mrs Chatterjee vs Norway is based on the life of Sagarika Chakraborty, who fought a tough battle against the government of Norway after the authorities of the European country snatched away her children, citing that she and her husband are not raising them well.

The film is set to release on March 17, 2023, almost 12 years after Sagarika’s ordeal began.
