Since the news of Rani Mukherji’s marriage with Aditya Chopra goes spread on the internet, there were rumours that the actress would lead the Yash Raj Films (YRF) production house. But Rani says she would rather take over the house than the office.
During the trailer launch of her upcoming movie Mardaani, the actress spoke to the media and said; “There is a lot of power in the house and especially in the kitchen. In the production house, there are many capable people who take care of everything. Adi being at the helm, I don’t think he requires anybody else. I would rather take over the house and not the office.”
The actress also said that even after marriage she should be addressed as Rani Mukerji.
“My name has not changed, so you all can call me Rani. I would like to be addressed as Rani only. I love my name so I will stick to that. For my films, people know me as Rani and they will always know me as Rani Mukerji. When I admit my children in school, I guess I will change my surname. But for my fans, it will always remain Rani Mukerji,” she added.
While her beloved hubby Aditya Chopra is known to be media shy and doesn’t like to appear on camera, Rani said he is a person who likes to maintain his privacy.
“We are always together. We do go out together, but as a person he has made a very conscious decision to concentrate on his work rather than making public appearances. That’s his decision and I don’t think that after marriage, it will change,” Rani said.
“Marriage makes you a different person. Although he is married to an actor, I don’t think he is entitled to become media savvy. He is an individual and would like to maintain his privacy. As long as he is visible to me, I am very happy,” said the Talaash actress.
Talking about her next movie, the 36-year-old said; “There has been a strong message for women in most of my films. I am very happy that this role came my way. It was an interesting role to play.”
Rani made her debut with 1997 film “Raja Ki Aayegi Baraat”.
“When I did research and met many women (police) inspectors, I took inspiration from them. This (film) is a way to reveal the contributions of women police officers in our country. There are female officers not only as good as male officers, sometimes even better. We have to change the perspective of how people look at a women police officer. This film is one step towards that change,” said the Kuch Kuch Hota Hai actress.
