Actress Rani Mukerji has the opinion that a film works when the content is good and she is always happy about essaying roles of specially-abled characters.
Whether it was Rani’s portrayal as a deaf and blind girl in “Black” or her role as a woman with Tourette’s Syndrome the actress has proved her mettle as a performer with sensitive and impactful performances. Rani told the media here on Friday that she was very proud of how the film did, especially as it came to her after motherhood as it proved a long-standing cliche wrong.
“With ‘Hichki’, that slightly changed… I am happy people accepted the content… I am the daughter of a writer and producer, I am the wife of a writer, director and producer, and I understand that script is the king, it’s the backbone.
“When your content is good, no matter you are married, unmarried, beautiful or not beautiful, a film works.” Rani said she was especially happy that awareness about Tourette’s Syndrome — a neurological disorder — got a boost with the Siddharth Malhotra directorial.
“I feel happy doing such films, about playing specially abled characters and I feel happy that directors think of me when they have such roles.”
