Rani Mukerji: Actresses who are married & mothers are not dead commodity

Rani Mukherji came back after a sabbatical of 7 years with HICHKI, which talks about Tourette syndrome. The movie has garnered great reviews and even received good response.

The 40-year-old actress said, that despite being married and having a kid, nothing has changed about her.

Riding on the success of her recently released film, HICHKI, the actress revealed that once an actress is married or has had children she is considered dead to the industry.

Rani at the success press conference said, “There are basic prejudices that come with married actresses and those who are mothers. How we are a dead commodity. We don’t sell and that no one wants to see us.”

On success of the film Rani said, “The opinion of the audience matters. It’s never the actor. It’s the audience because as an actor I will always give my 100 per cent like I gave before I became a mother. Today, people are more accepting of you. They don’t keep you on a pedestal. Everyone’s looking at you as a normal person. That’s also the persona you want to project that yes, we are stars but we are also attainable and we can make mistakes. Even if I have an opinion that doesn’t mean it has to be everyone else’s. No one’s going to take it so seriously that they will change their lives. And if they do, then great but they are aware that Rani also has flaws.”
