Rani Mukherjee is an actress who can be credited as the queen of bollywood, not only because of her first name which means ‘the Queen’ in Hindi and Bengali but also due to the kind of image that she had developed during all these years in the Indian film industry.

Rani was born in March 21, 1978 in West Bengal, India. She is coming from a movie oriented family, her father Ram Mukherjee is a retired director and her mother is a former playback singer, her maternal aunt Debashree Roy was a popular Bengali actress and her cousin Kajol is a bollywood superstar. And another cousin Sharbani Mukherjee also works in movies. Though this movie oriented family background allowed her easy entrance bollywood, she never hesitated to give her hundred percent efforts to each and every project she signed in. her hardworking and trusty nature made her the favorite of many directors and co stars.

She comes from a film-clan family of Bengali origin: Her father, Ram Mukherjee is a retired director. Her mother Krishna used to be a playback singer, while her brother Raja Mukherjee is a film producer. Her maternal aunt is Debashree Roy. The popular Bollywood actress, Kajol, is her second cousin.

She began her film career with the Bengali film Biyer Phool. Her first Hindi film was Raja Ki Aayegi Baraat (1996), which did not do well at the box office. However, her next two releases - Ghulam and Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (1998) - were India-wide hits. For the latter she received her first Filmfare Award in the Best Supporting Actress category.

Mukerji was signed on for a great many movies after these successes. Unfortunately, most of them did average business at the box office. The commercial and critical success of Saathiya in 2002 is widely believed to have revived her career.

Mukerji has been romantically linked with actors such as Govinda, Aamir Khan, Abhishek Bachchan and most recently, director Aditya Chopra.All parties have, however, strongly denied these rumours.
