The love-hate relationship between media and stars has been an eternal one. Their relationship is like a couple who keep fighting with each other but can't live without each other.
Bollywood actress Rani Mukherjee studied media's role closely for her role in upcoming film NO ONE KILLED JESSICA. She plays an intrepid & fastidious crime journalist in the film. "The very fact that I am playing a journalist in the film is also one of the reasons why I am part of it. It is the first time that media is shown in a powerful light in the film," says the 32-year old actress.
After working in the film NO ONE KILLED JESSICA, Rani's outlook towards media has completely changed and she can't stop praising about their role. "During the Jessica Lal case media was very instrumental in making people aware of what the case was. If the media hadn't taken it upon themselves to make people aware of it probably this public outcry wouldn't have happened. It is the first time media made use of its powers so correctly and it actually showed that if media ek baar kuch thaan leti toh who karke rehti hain. And to an extent it shook the judicial system in our country," says Rani
Further explaining media's role she adds, "Media is a powerful medium, if they use their power & rights in right way it can make huge difference. The whole responsibility lies in the hands of young journalist today who can either make or break what the country looks up to."
Directed by Rajkumar Gupta, the film also stars Vidya Balan, who essays the role of Jessica's sister, Sabrina.
