Rani Mukerji (born Rani Mukherjee on 21 March 1978) is an Indian film actress who works in Hindi movies. Born to the Mukherjee-Samarth family, she made her acting debut with a cameo appearance in the Bengali film Biyer Phool (1996), on the insistence of her mother. The following year, Mukerji made her Hindi film debut with Raja Ki Aayegi Baraat, and subsequently featured in Karan Johar's blockbuster romance Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (1998), which won her a Filmfare Award for Best Supporting Actress. For her work in the 2002 relationship drama Saathiya, she won her first Filmfare Critics Award for Best Actress.
In 2004, her performances in the hit romantic comedy Hum Tum and the critically acclaimed drama Yuva earned her the Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress awards, respectively, at the 50th Filmfare Awards. She later received unanimous praise for her portrayal of a blind, deaf and mute woman in Black (2005), for which she garnered two more Filmfare Awards: Best Actress and Actress - Critics. She went on to play leading roles in the comedy Bunty Aur Babli (2005) and the adult drama Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna (2006), both of which emerged as major economic successes in India and overseas. These accomplishments established Mukerji as a leading actress of Hindi cinema. She then starred in a series of commercially unsuccessful films, a majority of which were under the Yash Raj Films banner, that led to setbacks in her career. She later earned praise for her portrayal of a headstrong journalist in No One Killed Jessica (2011) and a grieving mother in Talaash (2012).
