Rani Mukerji Photos At Hichki Teachers Awards 2018
In a pair of ripped denims, a tucked-in bright round neck t-shirt, hair tied in a simple and neat ponytail and a pair of white sneakers, Rani Mukerji looks far from turning 40.
As she entered a new decade of life on Wednesday, the actress, who is coming back to the big screen after a hiatus of four years with Hichki, says she hopes to do more movies and wants to cherish the foundation years of her two-year-old daughter Adira with husband and filmmaker Aditya Chopra. “I want to treat my 40 as my 20. And I want to do a lot of work… More and more movies. I want to enjoy bringing up Adira. It is going to be the most important years of her life, so I think it’s going to be a really really nice decade.
The movie, directed by Siddharth P Malhotra, is about aspiring teacher Naina Mathur, who has a nervous system disorder, Tourette Syndrome. The disorder forces an individual to make involuntary repetitive movements or sounds. The film’s narrative focuses on turning disadvantages into opportunities. “Because for me, the story is that connect… Stories that are human, which have a strong emotional connect or the stories that connect with me or resonate with me as a person. I give more precedence to that. For me, it is important that the audience connects with the story or storyline, and when they connect with it, they connect with me and the character as well.
